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.


Upcoming Flings

A Weekend Affair is a temporary space (Aug-Dec 2019) housed at A305, 9 Winstedt Road, where we continue our focus on people and their works, that situate at the intersections of art, theory and practice.

Upcoming weekend flings have limited capacity of between 15-20 people.
