|The Substation’s Associate Artist Research Programme (AARP) is a two-year residency programme (2011-2013) where selected art practitioners will be provided with curatorial, financial, administrative, and operational support to pursue and develop individual interdisciplinary art research and practice at The Substation. The programme replaces the previous Associate Artist Scheme first initiated in early 2002.
The key objective of the Associate Artist Research Programme is to support and promote critical and sustainable research, development and discourse in contemporary art and interdisciplinary practice in Singapore. For the inaugural cycle, The Substation has invited Bani Haykal, Grace Tan (kwodrent), Ming Poon, and vertical submarineto be The Substation’s Associate Artists for 2011-2013.
Recognising that public discourse and dialogue is critical in art-making processes, a microsite dedicated to the Associate Artist Research Programme provides interested members of the arts and research community, as well as the public, access to developments of each research project updated by the respective artists. Throughout the two-year residency, each artist will also present performance-lectures, workshops, exhibitions and performances during different stages of the research.
The AARP microsite will be launched shortly.
