Next Stop: Wonderland

Next Stop: Wonderland

When Michele and I stepped into Majestic Bar when it first opened, we were instantly enchanted by the space. Fusing gorgeous architecture (admittedly, I have a soft spot for shophouses) with stunning installation art on every floor, I realised that it had been a while since an environment, much less a bar in Singapore, made my imagination purr so contentedly. I had the chance to speak with Mark Wee of Annex A architects, the firm behind Majestic Bar, and as he explained the concept and creative process behind the project, a voice in my head said, “This is amazing, if only people could hear this…” Which got me thinking about having a little do just for Culturepush, an opportunity for everyone to find out more about great work from the artists themselves.

Hence, we are pleased to present our first Culturepush event, Next Stop: Wonderland! Details below.

NEXT STOP: WONDERLAND

Inspired by an enchanted forest, the Majestic Bar is a hidden oasis in the heart of Chinatown. Conceived as a tree within a building, each story in this three-storey bar represents a different part and experience of being in the tree.

In a rare collaboration of art and architecture, Majestic Bar integrates artworks by Zadok ben David, Donna Ong, Sandra Lee and Yuki Chong, transforming a classic shophouse into a living work of art.

Join us for a night of drinks and conversation with architects Annex A, artists Donna Ong, Jason Lim, Sandra Lee, Yuki Chong and Audrey Phng of Asian Art Options as they bring us on a very personal tour of Majestic Bar.

The first of a series of intimate and friendly tours and talks initiated by Culturepush, we invite arts enthusiasts, aspiring artists and ultimately, people curious about art, to meet up-and-coming and successful Singapore-based artists and designers to find out more about their work.

The event is free. To reserve a place, email Michele by Friday, 23rd November.
