The Bible contains six admonishments to homosexuals and 362 admonishments to heterosexuals. That doesn't mean that God doesn't love heterosexuals. It's just that they need more supervision.

(Closed) An Afternoon of Art / Sat 11th April, 12.30pm

Hi everyone,

Our first event for the month of April will be a bit of departure from all the "back to nature" events we've been having lately! It's time for a bit of culture, a bit of art ("Aarrrrt dahling, it's art!!"). Two fabulous exhibitions have opened in Singapore and they're only a stone's throw from each other (ok, maybe more like 200 metres, but you get the drift)!!!

First up... the "This Is Not A Print!" exhibition at the Singapore Art Museum's new edgy art space 8Q@SAM. It's otherwise known as the "old Catholic High School", which should make it doubly exciting for old boys of Cat High (like me) :)

Singapore Art Museum’s new contemporary wing, 8Q sam presents This is Not a Print!, a selection of over 70 multiples and prints from the Singapore Art Museum’s 1500-piece Tyler Art Collection. From Pop multiples prints by Jasper Johns and David Hockney to the sculpture and conceptual multiples by John Newman, Claes Oldenberg and Roy Lichstenstein, the exhibition traces the trajectories and convergences of the development of print making in Europe and America shaped by the concept of the Artist’s Multiple.

Then. it's across the road to the National Museum, where the costume design work of the incomparable Christian Lacroix is on show!!

The virtuoso haute couture designer Christian Lacroix, who is known for defining the look of the 1980s with its bright colours and extravagant embellishments, presents his splendid costume design work of 20 years for the ballet, theatre and opera in this exclusive exhibition. Lacroix's inspiration for productions such as Carmen, Gaité Parisienne, Othello, Cosi Fan Tutte and Phèdre are eclectic, drawing from a wide variety of sources, and are at once historical and yet modern. In Asia for the very first time, close to 80 spectacular costumes and 60 sketches from the collection of the Centre National du Costume de Scène (National Stage Costume Centre, Moulins, France) and from Lacroix’s personal collection, will take stage at the National Museum of Singapore from March to June 2009.
