Six artists have been selected by Visual Arts Development Association Singapore (VADA) this year for the UNTAPPED EMERGING programme. This annual exhibition at Shophouse 5 supports artists at the start of their career through a showcase targeted at equipping these artists with the required guidance to show and direct their professional practices. The artists are: Kayleigh Goh, Justin Lim, Benedict Loong, Quinn Lum, Faris Nakamura and Ong Si Hui. Each have received considerable accolade in their short careers thus far.
The ‘appointment only’ notice for Shophouse 5 can make it difficult to make plans to visit but not to worry, they are doing an open house on 1 July, 2-5pm. This also seems to be their closing event as the show ends on 2 July.
This year’s judging committee include Singaporean artist Boo Sze Yang, Assistant Professor Martin Constable of The Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, Vietnam and Adeline Kueh, Senior Lecturer of LASALLE College of the Arts. Listen to Yeo Tze Yang talk to us about his work at last year’s UNTAPPED EMERGING here.
