Sim Lim Square Art Residency

7 – 27 January 2019

Sim Lim Square #06–53/31

1 Rochor Canal Rd, Singapore 188504

Open studio: 12pm – 6pm daily

Free admission.


Facing the imminent threat of en-bloc, coupled with dwindling sales and a notorious reputation with tourists, timber turned electronics hub Sim Lim Square is a melding of national and transnational labour and affects, visible and invisible networks, trendy and obsolete goods; all etched in the Singaporean subconscious.


Set against Singapore’s rapid adoption of digital technologies, the three-week residency held in the city’s ‘tech’ mecca aims to code and recode perspectives surrounding art, technology and space. Inhabiting a store unit repurposed as an artist studio, the residency offers opportunities to engage with communities and resources at Sim Lim Square to develop new works and artistic discourses. It aims to provide a space <  > that serves as a conduit for ongoing conversations and investigations between the residency artists and diverse communities connected by the mall.


The residency programme includes open studios, guided tours, panel sessions, artist talks, and presentation of works by the artists.
