In 1993, Jasmine Tay founded Jasmine Fine Arts (J.F.A) - located at Orchard Point - dedicated to showcasing the work of established and up-and-coming Chinese Artists. When MAD Museum of Art and Design (M.A.D) was then established, It was the first art museum to feature important and usually inaccessible pieces of contemporary art. M.A.D is not only for art purists and buyers, but also for those who appreciate the influence of art and design on everyday life. The gallery allows participating artists to express themselves in ways outside of the traditional media - including merchandise - making art more accessible.
M.A.D's new space on Tanglin Road is bigger and hopes to put greater support behind emerging design in Asia. Expect to see a year-long program of shows, exhibitions, events, workshops and talks, as well as new amenities like a merchandise store, a sculpture garden, a cigar bar and a café.
Another music festival, another legendary act.
Returning festivals, concerts and a new bar to call home this month.
It's all about collaborations this year, and one of them is with Uniqlo.
