Curatorial Director & Partner, Chan + Hori Contemporary

Presently Curatorial Director and Partner of Chan + Hori Contemporary in Singapore, I have been known for a multidisciplinary and unconventional approach to curating evolving from my personal art practice and involvement in theatre. Prior to my current position my recent curatorial career highlights were: firstly in 2014, when I was invited to join Palais de Tokyo in Paris, Europe’s largest and internationally renowned art centre, as its Deputy Director of Artistic Programming; secondly, and prior to that, I was Senior Curator at the Singapore Art Museum, overseeing Singapore’s national collection for contemporary art; and thirdly my spell as Senior Curator at the Curatorial Development department of the National Heritage Board, Singapore. In January 2017, I delivered LOCK ROUTE, an international outdoor sculpture exhibition at Singapore’s visual art precinct Gillman Barracks, commissioned by the National Arts Council.
