IN PROGRESS | phase 2. Internship

Two weeks ago, the second phase of the programme began as Curating Lab participants began month-long industry immersions at one of three participating institutions. Apart from gaining an overview of the activities and practice of an contemporary art institution, participants have also been involved heavily in upcoming institutional projects as well as working on their own final exhibition projects under the guidance of institutional mentors.

At NUS Museum, Luca Lum, Chua Ying Qing and Raksha Mahtani have been working on forthcoming exhibitions in 2015 including the conception of publications and public programmes. In particular, they have undertaken research into possible 'passwords' that would guide as well as gather the year's exhibitions through more collective frames.

The National Arts Council team of Selene Yap, Euginia Tan, Cheng Jia Yun and Wong Yeang Cherng divide their time between interning with the Venice Biennale Secretariat and intense research for SEABOOK that sees them working closely with artist Charles Lim, curator Shabbir Hussain Mustafa and librarian Janice Loo.

Over at the Centre for Contemporary Art, Singapore, interns Kenneth Loe, Melvin Tan, Bernice Ong and Samantha Yap have been intensively involved in Theatrical Fields, an exhibition opening August 22, More than [show] business, the collaboration between CCA and Post-Museum, as well as the institution's new artist residency programme. Their responsibilities range from exhibition design and installation, to public programming and publications, to research as well as day-to-day operations.
