In an Instant: Polaroid at the Intersection of Art and Technology
Explore the museum's exhibition, In an Instant: Polaroid at the Intersection of Art and Technology now till 31 March 2019, and discover a nostalgic flashback to the heyday of Polaroid.
In an age where apps provide instant services and smartphones allow us to capture just about anything and everything in an instant, the culture of now has never been so prevalent. Its origins can perhaps be traced back to the late 1940s when Edwin Land first introduced the Polaroid camera to the world, marking a technological breakthrough in the history of photography. Instant photography was born, predating the digital age in which we live today. Polaroid’s unique qualities inspired artists and photographers including Andy Warhol, Ansel Adams, Lucas Samaras and Barbara Crane, while capturing the imagination of everyone else. In allowing people to capture a shared moment and to memorialise it in an instant, Polaroid was arguably perceived as the social network of its time. Through a wide range of Polaroid artworks and artefacts, this exhibition offers insight into the story of Polaroid photography, while exploring the impact of instant photography and this social phenomenon of instantaneity on us today.

The Centenary Lodge, a Masonic Lodge in Singapore, will be holding a charity event at the Freemasons Hall on Saturday, 24 November 2018.
The one-day event is open to the public and will feature exclusive guided tours of the building, alongside a Christmas Night Market held by The Local People. Proceeds from the tours and sales from the booking of vendor booths for the fair will be donated to the Kidz Horizon Appeal, a Singapore registered charity organization, which benefits children and women with chronic illnesses.
This is the first time an event of this scale is being held on the grounds of the historic 139-year-old Freemasons Hall building at 23A Coleman Street, as generally only Freemasons are permitted within the building.
Now, non-Masons will have a unique opportunity to get a peek behind closed doors, with 2 guided tours available on the 24th of November, at 5pm and 7pm. Tour tickets are priced at $100 each, and come with a complimentary tote bag containing Freemason memorabilia worth $55.
The one-hour tour will take attendees through the building as they learn about Freemasonry – including its history, symbolisms, and a rare opportunity to hear an explanation of a Masonic Ritual. Outside the building, the Christmas Market Fair will be free for the public to visit from 5pm till late.
Founder and CEO of Kidz Horizon Appeal, Dr. Caroline Low-Heah, said: “I’m extremely supportive and appreciative of the work, and for having our charity nominated for this event.”
To celebrate Marina Barrage's 10th Anniversary, a series of fun and exciting activities are lined up from the month of March to October.

On 27 and 28 October, participants can also experience cruising right in the heart of the Marina Reservoir and learn about the creation of this urban reservoir through a specially-arranged boat tour that will set off from Marina Barrage.
Come down with your family and friends to join in the celebrations as we relive our memories and rediscover the significance of this engineering feat.
