OH! Open House 2013 at Marina Bay Singapore


Last Sunday, I was invited to visit the OH! Open House 2013 at Marina Bay Singapore. It was a beautiful and memorable day whereby I had gained some knowledge about our Singapore history and the guided tour had shown us their 6 very different type of Happiness Index and visited exclusive locations.

About OH! Open House:
OH!, Singapore’s only art walkabout, makes a foray into the high powered boardrooms and offices of Marina Bay. Through three soldout events, OH! has taken more than 5000 strangers to see art in real life homes in Niven Rd (2009), Marine Parade (2011) and Tiong Bahru (2012). From shophouses to HDBs and Art Deco walk-ups of Tiong Bahru, OH! makes a surprising turn to look at corporate Singapore. Alan Oei, co-founder and curator, explains the shift: “I thought Marina Bay was all office, glass, steel and mirrors. But there is a secret and fascinating life beneath all that. In many ways, one can look at it as manifesting a kind of zeitgeist. It’s a really interesting moment in Singapore now, and the arts should be part of that conversation.”
