  • It is always refreshing and intriguing to come here every couple of months when the new theme is coming up. The arts I saw today is pretty marvellous and strong. The blood-knitting-web seems “awfully splendid “, the horses statues are strong too. And really enjoy this season’s theme. As an art newbie, can’t say I have lots to say but they do make me thinking and enjoying.
  • Get immersed in a world of clever, yet fascinating, yet mind-boggling creativity. And even more so when the surrealism exhibition opens.... It's gonna be an deep dive into wonderland.
