Now in its sixth edition, The Art Incubator is an annual residency programme that provides opportunities for Singaporean artists to create new work. This year, artists anGie Seah, Godwin Koay and Sufian Samsiyar were selected through an open call, and completed residencies with the Victorian College of the Arts (Melbourne), Bamboo Curtain Studio (Taipei), and 98B (Manila) respectively.
The exhibition presents works developed by the artists during their residencies. These include new ceramic sculptures by Seah and a series of prints by Samsiyar, which feature views of the sprawling urban landscape of the city of Santa Cruz. Curated by The Art Incubator 6 curator-in-residence Kimberly Shen, the exhibition encourages reflection on how artists respond to foreign locations through their work, as well as the rising interest in residencies as a platform for art in Singapore.
