I am pleased to be invited to be part of this exciting project opening as part of the Singapore Art Week 06-15 January 2023 and joining colleagues and collaborators for the open seminar and launch at the National Institute of Education on the 12th of January. I will exhibit three pieces of work alongside fourteen international artists, academics and researchers – Identification l-lX, embroidery on canvas and Ono-Moiré and Moiré-Iè, ink on reused envelopes produced as part of a residency in Onomichi, Japan.
The Art of Creative Research features artworks in a range of media by fifteen international creatives from six influential Universities: The Education University of Hong Kong, the National Institute of Education (NTU) Singapore, and from the UK: the Arts University Bournemouth, the Royal College of Art, Homerton College (University of Cambridge), and University College London.
It is the first event in a collaboration that grew from a discourse about art practice as academic research, its nature and its beneficial
impact. The exhibition showcases and celebrates individual creative works in a range of media and explores the effect this creative practice has on enhancing the value of the student experience and building connections between educational institutions,the creative industries, and local communities. The exhibitors share aspects of their simultaneous multi-identities asArtists/Designers, Academic Researchers/Scholars, and Educators/Teachers.
