UNTAPPED invites young visual artists to apply to participate in one of two group shows to be held at SHOPHOUSE 5, an art space located in the Geylang area of Singapore. The goal of the series is to establish a network of support and offer practical experience for local artists at this crucial early stage in their career. UNTAPPED does this by presenting two annual juried group exhibitions and by connecting artists directly with arts patrons.
UNTAPPED EMERGING exhibits work by up to 10 artists with 2-4 years of professional practice. This show is scheduled for June 2016.
Applicants for UNTAPPED Emerging must be within 2-4 years of professional practice as of January 2016, and be currently based in Singapore. Artworks will be judged based on originality, conceptual rigour, technical expertise, and coherence between the concept and the finished work. Artists selected to participate in UNTAPPED will receive a $200 SGD artist fee and compensated for artworks sold. A complete list of Selection Criteria and Submission Instructions can be found at: www.vada.org.sg/untapped.
Applications for UNTAPPED Emerging close on 24 February 2016. Selected artists will be announced by 16 March 2016. The UNTAPPED Emerging Exhibition will take place 4 – 26 June 2016 at SHOPHOUSE 5.
When: 27 Jan - 24 Feb 2016,
