Artsy Festivals to go to This October

 
Artsy Festivals to go to This October

We are going through a strange stasis at the moment due to the lack of festivities. The Mid-Autumn festival and Oktoberfest only just passed, while Halloween only starts later this month. For those who are in constant search for entertainment, we suggest going to artsy festivals, at least until Halloween.

Between Love and Death: Diary of Nobuyoshi Araki

The 6th Singapore International Photography Festival (SIPF) is currently ongoing, with Nobuyoshi Araki’s exhibition as its highlight. Araki is an iconic provocateur in photography, climbing to fame with his documentary photos of the Yakuza and the debaucherous nightlife in Tokyo’s Kabukicho. Today, he is mostly known for his staged Kinbaku (Japanese Bondage) erotic photography, which has inspired many in their photographic craft. For this exhibition, Araki drops his bigger-than-life persona to become a man who is deeply in love with his wife. Immerse yourself in the intimacy between Araki and his wife during their marriage till the death of his spouse. Find more SIPF exhibitions here.

6 September to 9 December, DECK Gallery 1 & 2, 120A Prinsep Street, 187937

 

Finnish Film Festival 2018

The Finnish Film Festival returns to The Projector for the second time. As if watching movies in a cinema we believe to be better than the Nitehawk Cinema Williamsburg wasn’t hipster enough, now you can watch critically acclaimed Scandinavian films to double down on the hipster-ness (we are joking of course; we loves indie things). Be sure to check out films by master auteur Aki Kaurismäki, alleged spiritual ancestor of all things Wes Anderson. The event runs from now till 21 October. Head here to buy tickets.

11 to 21 October, The Projector, 6001 Beach Road, #05-00, Golden Mile Tower, 199589
