5 Cool Events To Check Out This Week: July 17 - 21

Our weekly recommendations on the things to do, people to see and places to hit up:


Yaeji presented by Collective Minds x Kilo Lounge
Never heard of Yaeji? Well get started, because this 25-year-old Korean-American singer and DJ might just be the next Grimes. Her music? An infectious mix of house/pop/rap that’s guaranteed to get you nodding along – just check out her catchy hit Raingurl, which has racked up seven million views on YouTube. Now she’s in town for the first time in a gig organised by local concert promoters Collective Minds as part of her Asia tour – don’t miss out. Get your tickets here. July 17, 9pm – 1am Kilo Lounge, 21 Tanjong Pagar Road *Image: Yaeji’s Instagram (@kraejiyaeji) Moongazers
Floating Utopias is one of the most visually arresting exhibition at the ArtScience Museum currently (check out British artist Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon, pictured above) and if you have yet to check it out, here’s the gist: it examines the obscure history of inflatable objects and their influence on art, history and activism over the decades. For this weekend only, there will be a special series of programs (aka Moongazers) to complement the exhibition, in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11’s historic landing on the moon. Expect art and music performances, films, talks, displays and workshops that are all inspired in various ways by the moon, including a documentary that spotlights the behind-the-scenes crew responsible for the success of the Apollo mission. Did we also mention that visitors will get free entry to this exhibition over the weekend (from 7pm – 10pm)? Check out the full line-up of events here.  July 18 – 20, various times ArtScience Museum, 10 Bayfront Avenue BlackKajiXtra x Nusasonic
If progressive, genre-defying and experimental sounds are your thing, don’t miss out on Nusasonic, a cultural project that explores how contemporary sounds can play a part in art dialogues in Southeast Asia. Curated in collaboration with local music label Ujikaji Records, expect a formidable array of local and regional music acts across the spectrum, including art rock group The Observatory and independent party series Horizon99 (pictured above is Chantal Tan, one-half of Horizon99). Get your tickets here. July 20 – July 21, various times The Substation, 45 Armenian Street The Dead Don't Die
The latest work by American auteur Jim Jarmusch is a wacky, deadpan take on the zombie genre. Featuring an impressive ensemble cast consisting of Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Chloe Sevigny, Danny Glover, Selena Gomez, Iggy Pop and regular collaborator Tilda Swinton, The Dead Don’t Die sees your typical small American town suddenly invaded by caffeine-crazed zombies. More details here. July 18 – 24, various times The Projector, #05-00 Golden Mile Tower This, That.
It’s a busy period over at hip art and food space Telok Ayer Arts Club. There’s the currently ongoing  food experience Advanced Dining, and now, a new exhibition by multi-hyphenate (musician, fashion designer, arts educator) cool cat Ginette Chittick. Titled This, That., it’s Chittick’s first solo exhibition and she’s presenting a series of works using hand-spun yarn, wood and acrylic. Head over to Telok Ayer Arts Club already. On till September 5, 11am – 11pm Telok Ayer Arts Club, 2 McCallum Street
