phase 2. Internship


13 August- 2 November 2012 (12 weeks)

NUS Museum I   Thursday 5-8pm
Singapore Art Museum  I   Tuesday 6-8pm and/or Thursday 6-8pm
Future Perfect  I   Wednesday 5-7pm and/or Friday 5-7pm

(The internship is not a full-time commitment. It will require a minimum of 3-5 hours/ week contact-time with the respective institutions' curator-mentor. However it is to be noted that you may be expected to meet outside official hours to work on assigned projects.)

With the completion of the workshop, programme participants will embark on a 3-month Internship programme where they will be afforded the opportunity to work closely with practitioners across different spectrums of the arts and heritage industry, developing practical work skills to build upon the theoretical foundations from the workshop. Participants will get to join in on-going work and develop a new project under the auspices of the institution, and according to its mandate.

Participating Institutions

         NUS Museum's mission is to actively facilitate the intellectual and cultural life of the NUS 
         community. Focusing primarily but not exclusively on Southeast Asian art and culture, the   
         Museum contributes to and facilitates the production, reception, and preservation of 
         knowledge through collections development and curatorial practice, developing  
         partnerships within NUS, the cultural and heritage industry, and the global knowledge 

         Singapore Art Museum (SAM) advocates and presents contemporary art practices of 
         Singapore and the Southeast Asian region. Opened in January 1996 as a museum 
         under the National Heritage Board of Singapore, SAM has amassed one of the world's 
         largest public collections of modern and contemporary Southeast Asian artworks, with a 
         growing component in international contemporary art. Since 2009, SAM has focused its 
         programming and collections development initiatives around contemporary Southeast 
         Asian art, and art practices. Through strategic alliances with arts and cultural institutions 
         and community organisations, SAM facilitates visual arts education, exchange, research 
         and development within the region and internationally. SAM also organised the 
         Singapore Biennale 2011.

          Future Perfect works with an international roster of contemporary artists. With extensive 
          knowledge and experience in the Asian region and beyond, Future Perfect provides 
          international promotion and representation for contemporary artists, as well as research
