Free things to do this weekend

Last weekend the city was gripped F1 fever, use this weekend to relax and recover from race frenzy. You probably couldn’t make it to ALL the events, but we sure did. Sit back and relax with a cup of coffee and browse our galleries for the who, what, where and how of the Singapore GP.

Make an appointment at the ReDot Fine Art Gallery to view the international showing of works from the Mimili Maku Art Centre of the APY lands in South Australia. Over 30 works have been pulled together to create the show 'Ngura Puti' (Bush Home).

Walk into the Marina Bay Sands, Tower 2 Hotel Lobby and allow mentalist Nicholas Tweedy to mess with your head, and showcase his mind-blowing (literally) tricks and illusions.

Video art? Check out those by Maria Jose Arjona , she will be presenting four works, three of which are videos created during her residency at the Watermill Center in New York.

Exquisite paper works by contemporary Asian artists Wang Tian Xua,  Yim Taekyu and phunk studion, from Singapore on display at the Art Season’s Gallery.

Chart Singapore’s journey towards independence with this B&W photo exhibition at the National Gallery called 45-65: Liberation, Unrest… a New Nation.

Indulge in some traditional Chinese art in the Ways of Seeing Chinese Art that features over 200 objects including ceramics, jades and bronzes from the Lee Kong Chian Collection.

If all the art and culture gets too much for you; get one with nature at the butterfly garden in Hort Park. It promises a visual feast of tropical plants and nearly 20 species of native butterflies.
