Presented in conjunction with Curating Lab 2012, the Curatorial Roundtable series is a public talk series that gathers together curatorial and industry pratitioners across different spectrums, to discuss their latest exhibitions and projects. Although presented primarily for the participants of Curating Lab 2012, this series is an opportunity to bridge the gap between the curator and the audience, providing opportunities for interaction and stimulating discussions on curatorial practices and process.


Alan Oei is an artist-curator who has exhibited in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong, Melbourne and New York. As a curator, he has initiated public projects such as Blackout, a warehouse exhibition that drew 3000 people to an industrial estate, and OH! Open House, the annual walkabout featuring art inside real life homes in neighbourhoods like Marine Parade and Tiong Bahru.  He has a BA Art History (magna cum laude) from Columbia University (NY) and a Diploma in Fine Arts (distinction) from LASALLE College of the Arts.

Tan Shir Ee is an arts consultant, manager and curator who traverses artistic disciplines and cities. She cut her teeth at the National Arts Council and the Esplanade before joining the Akram Khan Dance Company in London. She coordinated the United Arab Emirate's inaugural participation at the 2009 Venice Biennale before returning to Singapore to helm the 
Freedom to Create Prize which advocates social change through the arts. Other projects include curating the commissioned art at the award-winning New Majestic Hotel. She is currently lecturing at LASALLE College of the Arts and working on the Land Transport Authority's Art In Transit programme. 

Khairuddin Hori graduated with a Master of Arts from LASALLE, Singapore in 2006. Prior to his engagement as Senior Curator at the Singapore Art Museum (SAM), Khairuddin worked as an artist and independent curator focused on artists’ collectives and emerging talents from Southeast Asia with a particular focus on Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia.
