Tech Arc

Tech Arc is a community space, where creatives can work from and also use their machinery – they have a 3D printer, laser cutter etc, and the idea is that it allows creatives to do this work themselves instead of having to use third party suppliers.

The Swatch Art Peace Hotel offers a unique artist residency giving artists from China and around the world the opportunity to explore Chinese culture from a very privileged perspective. More than two hundred and twenty artists from over forty countries have lived and worked in the workshops and apartments on the hotel’s 2nd and 3rd floors. Exchanges and interactions among visiting artists are always very lively, and many inspirational events have taken place, including a collaborative effort between a sculptor and dancers, and fruitful idea-sharing among Chinese and Western artists. “Open studio” events encourage communication among artists, the management team, the local art community and the public. The diversity of disciplines and nationalities continues to grow and the “traces” left by artists include paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs, video, sound clips and more.

The Exhibition Room on the first floor features 480 square meters for art exhibitions. The space also offers a congenial environment for special presentations and thematic displays.

Barim

11 months ago

Barim is a cross-genre collective of artists who are based in Gwangju, and a former Goshiwon (the smallest housing for students or low-imcomes), currently a media space, working studio, and open art district in Gwangju, Korea.

The members of the collective are varied in their genres such as visual arts, media art, performing arts, performers, painters, and traditional painters (Minhwa), and all of them are working site-specifically, highlighting old-Goshiwon rooms and building.

Barim aims to vitalize activities of local scenes of arts and cultures, to focus on “process-based” works beyond existing genres of the arts, to create a community of artists, local citizens, and audience, and to support cultural and artistic exchanges between local and international artists through artist-in-residence and research-in-residence. It also sets a goal to bring a communication between young and experienced artists, to intervene and transcend different genres of the arts, to emphasize amateurism perspective, and to focus on process and discussion rather than completion.

Goshiwon (capsule houses):

A goshiwon, only existed in Korea, is a small furnished room around 5 square meters that usually located in the middle of downtown. Goshiwon is the smallest house in Korea (probably in the world) that originally it was invented for students who would often live in for a number of months in order to focus on exams. Now Goshiwon, contemporary living space, becomes a space where the real life and contemporary culture/art encounter. The residency program is not to aim an artist-in-residence strictly programmed by Barim, but to aim a residency proposed and curated by artists themselves. It is also possible to work with high school students, collaborate with local artists, do workshops, and other various ways to reach to the community.

Gillman Barracks

1 year ago

Located on a 6.4 hectare site and set amid lush greenery, Gillman Barracks is a contemporary arts cluster in Singapore that is home to 11 international art galleries, three restaurants and the NTU Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA) Singapore, which are all housed in conserved colonial barracks.

The galleries feature diverse and ever-changing exhibitions from internationally acclaimed artists, of the region and around the world. These artists include both established and emerging artists such as Alfredo and Isabel Aquilizan, Heman Chong, Yayoi Kusama, Yoshitomo Nara and Sebastião Salgado.

The CCA is devoted to advancing knowledge in contemporary art through its international artist residency, research and exhibition programmes that will bolster the region’s visual arts landscape. By fostering cultural exchange and creation, generating discourse and research and showcasing the most innovative art of our time, the galleries and CCA will establish Singapore as an important centre for contemporary art in Asia.

Set up in 1936 to accommodate the expansion of the British infantry in Singapore, the camp consists of 14 buildings that were taken over by the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) in August 1971 as part of the withdrawal of the British military from Singapore.

After the SAF vacated the camp in the 1990s, the buildings were used for commercial purposes and the site was renamed Gillman Village in 1996. The site reverted to its original name, Gillman Barracks, in 2010 and was re-developed and launched in September 2012 as a contemporary art centre.
