    Constellations

    Only running for a short 10 days, Constellations is the South East Asian debut of renowned New York City artist, Futura. The exhibition, held at Gillman Barracks, will showcase 30 of his original works, all of which are produced in Singapore, each testament to his famed graffiti style.

    Futura’s work has deep roots tracing back to his time serving in the US Navy — which coincidentally brought the artist to Singapore back in 1974. As a stylistic nod to this, an exhibition catalogue, presented in a specially-designed military ammo box with a matching canvas carrier, will be available at the exhibition.

    On 1 June, there will also be an exclusive screening of a mini-documentary chronicling Futura's artistic journey. To be held at The Projector, the documentary will be followed by a sharing session with the artist himself, and then an after-party.

    Exhibition runs from 30 May to 9 June.
