For the next three weekends, you can walk into these strangers’ homes, look around, appreciate art — and they’ll be totally cool with it. Nope, they aren’t selling their houses. These are unique pop-up art experiences happening all around the island in six homes, as part of this year’s Oh! Open House programme.

If you’re not clued in, Oh! Open House organises various art experiences annually. Last year’s Emerald Hill art walks, where residents in quaint shophouses in the 'hood welcomed guests, were a resounding success. 

This year, organisers are taking experiential art to six homes all across the island (the location is a secret until you’ve purchased a ticket at $20 per person). Titled Passport, this year's edition centers on themes such as identity, home, and belonging. Curators have paired up six hosts, who will house the art experience and artworks that they will co-create with six artists. Bear in mind both parties don’t know each other prior to this. Slots are limited to 10 to 20 people each session, which lasts between 45 mins to an hour.  

TL;DR? It’s like going to a museum or an art gallery — but it’s a bit more of a hipster experience because it’s in someone’s home. Scroll on for a sneak peek at what to expect at each home, and which experiences you should zero in on.
