Have you ever dreamt of getting a major art museum all to yourself? Soho House Cities Without Houses members in Singapore were lucky to experience just that. As part of a collaboration with Singapore Biennale 2022, they had the chance to step into Singapore Art Museum before this year's Biennale displays officially opened to the public. Artists, curators, patrons, the city’s creatives and members enjoyed a glimpse of the Biennale exhibitions, music by Singapore favourites, Nicolette and Kiat, and a mezcal tasting bar by Código 1530.

The main event was followed by a celebration of the seventh edition of the Singapore Biennale, which runs until 19 March 2023 and features more than 50 international artists. 

The guests – including CEO of Singapore Art Museum, Chong Siak Ching; actor Fiona Xie; editor in chief of Vogue Singapore, Norman Tan, and filmmaker and conservationist Sean Lee-Davies – gathered in front of the ‘Wayang Spaceship’, an art installation by Ming Wong that’s in the car park of Tanjong Pagar Distripark. Placed by Singapore’s largest container ports, the installation also features a travelling Chinese theatre. 

Food was catered by Singapore member, Pia Lopez, who made traditional hawker bites to go with Picantes, Palomas and lychee craft beer by local brewery, The 1925 Brewing Co.
