Microbites of Innovation is part of ArtScience Museum’s ‘Sunday Showcase’ programme, featuring cutting edge research from both artists and scientists. These innovators often straddle between these fields, as is the case with the artists invited by guest curators Dr. Marcia Nancy Mauro-Flude & Marketa Dolejšová. Dr. Flude is currently the Director of Random Blends a Curating and Cultural Leadership program at the department of Communications and New Media in National University of Singapore (NUS) while Ms. Dolejšová is an independent curator and PhD candidate in the same department.
The truly international exhibition features 33 artists from all continents except Antarctica, including 4 Singapore based artists: Miguel Escobar Varela, Daniel Sim Yong En, Isabelle Desjeux and Hans Tan.
The featured works share a similar intent of interacting with its audience in space or sound. The curators describe the show as “responding to the emergent conditions of a networked world”, which its international cast as well as the works’ demonstrated themes of critical enquiry and human action action clearly express.
Unfortunately this show only goes on for one week. Nonetheless, Sunday Showcase does happen once a month so we could expect more interesting programmes such as this at the ArtScience Museum in the future.
