Fancy resting on a gigantic mattress with the proverbial sheep hanging over, strolling in a bergamot and sandalwood-scented forest or riding on a merry-go-round that transports you to different times in a day?
Visitors at the upcoming 29Rooms Asia, an experiential event-meets-arts exhibition can lap up in the interactive playground (and take many selfies along the way) when the inaugural Asian edition of the event comes to Singapore, from February 1 to 10, 2023.
The event, which is run by media company Refinery29, will be held at the West Lawn in Gardens By The Bay, which was vacated by the Orient Express exhibition.
Launched in 2015, 29Rooms started out as a roving arts exhibition-meets-party that has toured major cities in the United States. Over three million people from 24 countries have participated in its online and physical events over the years. Its last edition, which was held in New York City and Los Angeles in 2019, attracted around 120,000 visitors.
The event is famed for having celebrities and artists such as Lizzo, Solange Knowles, Margot Robbie and RuPaul co-curate its themed rooms and programmes. The line-up of international stars for 29Rooms Asia will be announced at a later date.
