Art Stuff 03 Dec 2017

Planning a trip to Singapore next year (e.g. for Art Stage Singapore in January ), make sure to sip matcha tea à la Rirkrit Tiravanja. The famed artist will open a pop-up tea house at the National Gallery Singapore‘s rooftop garden – hidden within an XL-sized bamboo maze.

Visitors are invited to participate in traditional tea ceremonies – once they manage to find their way, from January onwards until late autumn.

Tiravanja previously built mirrored tea rooms at the Museum of Old and New Art in Hobart, Tasmania (in 2013) and at the Okayama Art Summit (in 2016). If the project is rooted in this previous installations, expect matcha, ancient tea masters and lots of bamboo.

The National Gallery Singapore’s rooftop commission series kicked off a year ago with artist Danh Vo, whose site-specific installation just closed last month.
