Driven by close collaboration and sustained conversations between artists and curators, SAM Contemporaries is a biennial project that spotlights emerging practices and generative trends in Singapore contemporary art. A platform for experimentation, collective research and engaged criticality, each edition will feature six to eight artists and art collectives paired with one or more SAM curators, who will co-develop programmes and presentations in various formats. The inaugural edition, titled Residues & Remixes considers the impact of historical remnants on the present as well as the influence of new technologies on how we see, experience and understand the world. It features six Singapore-based artists, Yeyoon Avis Ann, Anthony Chin, Fyerool Darma, Priyageetha Dia, Khairulddin Wahab and Moses Tan, who have worked closely with SAM curators to review their current interests and present moments in their artistic research.
