Disentangling and deviating from the Complex Contemporary Condition of Capitalism and Coloniality, A Weekend Affair culminated as an art festival-symposium on June 1-2, 2019 at a chalet in the northeastern part of the island.

Currently, A Weekend Affair is temporary space at Winstedt Road, that focuses on people and their works, that situate at the intersections of art, theory and practice — exploring (intimate) gatherings as a both a space and a (plat)form.

A Weekend Affair is in the midst of putting together a publication scheduled to be released sometime mid-2020.
