Jan Calleja Solo Show SEEING BEING (Opens June 16) & Toy Workshop @ CultureCave (June 16+17)

Famed Manila-based customiser Jan Calleja (IG @jan_calleja / TAGGED #onTOYSREVIL) will descend upon Singapore for his solo show "Seeing Being" launching June 16th at CultureCave (first featured), and as well a toy workshop (scheduled for June 16+7 / Register online here).

Before their "official" www-venues go "live", folks might want to stay connected to Culture Cave-boss Yeo Hon Beng's Instagram @yeonardo for event updates :)

Featured here today are peeks at the CultureCave space (courtesy of Hon Beng!) - currently filled with the clutter of boxes as they unpack and fill the toy-shelves with awesome collectibles (So Exciting!) - along with the Official Press release from the "former" Detention Barracks - who have since moved out of their Joo Chiat premises!

"Detention Barracks has a new home.

After 4 years of blood, sweat and tears, we bid farewell to our humble abode.

56B Joo Chiat place will always have a place in our hearts, not just as a space for growth and experimenting, but a place that allowed us to make mistakes while teaching us to be comfortable in our skin. None of this would have been possible without your love and support, so from all of us at DB, we salute you.

From drama recitals to art exhibitions and pop-up markets, the space saw us through some great time(s). But as all good things come an end, its time to move on."
- shared Yeo Hon Beng.

"Say hello to CultureCave.

Encompassing the same gritty, working-class indie spirit of Detention Barracks, we say hello to CultureCave our new home at 18 Kaki Bukit Rd 3, #03-17, Entrepreneur Business Centre.

An extension of the DB brand, CultureCave will continue to be an art space and be an incubation pod for artists across all genres. From doodlers to graffiti artists and toy makers to photographers, we welcome you. Have an idea? Come talk to us."
