The historic Tiong Bahru Air Raid Shelter at 78, Guan Chuan Street, opened yesterday as the venue for an art exhibition - fittingly called RAID. The 1,500 sq m shelter, built in the late 1930s, will remain open until Feb 3 for the show, which will feature paintings, sculptures and installations by eight young and emerging artists. Co-curator Zulkhairi Zulkiflee told The Sunday Times: "The space (the air raid shelter) has a unique character. The works being shown here directly respond to that space." The exhibition is free.
