Moses Tan selected for PICA Asia Pacific Exchange Program 

9 Dec 2022

Moses Tan has been selected to inaugurate the Asia Pacific Exchange program organized by the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts, Grey Projects and Taipei Artist Village. The residency at PICA will oversee studio visits, open studios, and other presentation opportunities in Perth, expanding networks and his practice by engaging with western Australia’s arts communities and institutions.

Moses Tan’s (b. 1986) work explores histories that intersect with queer theory and politics while looking at melancholia and shame as points of departure. Working with drawing, video and installation, his interest lies in the use of subtlety and codes in the articulation of narratives. He graduated from LASALLE College of the Arts with a BA(Hons) in Fine Arts and a BA(Hons) in Chemistry and Biological Chemistry from Nanyang Technological University.

He was awarded the Noise Singapore Award for Art and Design in 2014, Winston Oh Travel Research Grant in 2016, and the LASALLE Award for Academic Excellence in 2016. He has exhibited across Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia, amongst others, including at spaces such as Grey Projects (Singapore), 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art (Australia), Hidden Space (Hong Kong), Indiana University (USA), Kunst Im Dialog (Germany). In 2018, Tan completed the Equal Justice Residency at Sante Fe Art Institute (USA).
