page65 is the study and pilot of how we can bring art communities in Singapore together in the hopes to establish a truly Singaporean art identity. Art in Singapore has diversity but lacks an ecosystem that allows for a learning journey – self-exploration and mentorship and guidance. By identifying what the needs are of visual artists, we can then pilot and build platforms for like-minded individuals to grow and expand their expertise. In my study, I have identified 3 main features of a platform that would help – 1. A seamless and uniformed portfolio methodology for the already busy artist to update their projects 2. Collaboration with art spaces and co-working spaces for guerilla-styled exhibitions/critique for artists to showcase their work-in-progress and/or final works 3. A news feed of art events and inspirations to follow up on.
The next step continues after FYP as I plan to make this a reality.
