Like a music jam session, artists will create works together. In addition to the static exhibition curated by Singaporean artist Mr Shah Rizzal and from the French artists’ side, Mr Claude Kunetz & Ms Claire Thibaud-Piton (an art consultant who is also co-producing this exhibition), the artists will perform live painting during the invitation-only opening reception to be held from 6:30pm on Saturday, 19 November. Works will be exhibited until 26th November.

Additionally, the group will also create murals at the following occasions:

- At the French School of Singapore as part of the ‘one child, one artist’ competition: seven children will help to create a mural together with some of the French and Singaporean artists. This will be at the Open Day at the French School on Thursday, 17 November from 3pm to 7pm.

- At the Shangri-La Rasa Sentosa Resort, the artists will be joined by students with mild intellectual disabilities from Delta Senior School coming together to create a wall mural, at the resort’s children’s club. This will take place on Sunday, 20 November from 10:30am to 1pm.

- The companies MAQUET & IDS have commissioned the artists for a painting, which will be donated to a hospital in Singapore for children with illnesses.
