LASALLE-SIA announces plans to realise its vision as Singapore's University of the Arts

LASALLE-SIA College of the Arts announced today new initiatives that will raise the international profile of Singapore’s Creative Industries and change the landscape of arts education. These initiatives are hot on the heels of LASALLE-SIA’s first step towards its vision to be Singapore’s university of the arts when it achieved Accredited Institution Status from The Open University (UK) in March this year and subsequently the validation of all of its 32 undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. The validation of all of its current undergraduate and postgraduate degrees was completed in three phases with the last group of eight Design undergraduate and postgraduate degrees successfully validated on 24 September 2004.

Said Professor Robert Ely FRSA, President & CEO of LASALLE-SIA: “The next phase of our strategic development involves:

Development of new innovative postgraduate programmes
Enhancement of research activities by creating new knowledge or applying and testing current knowledge
Attracting and retaining high-calibre faculty members at professorial level
Establishing International collaborations and partnerships
The College aims to increase its international student enrolment from its current 30 per cent to 70 per cent by 2008 with total student enrolment doubling from 1,500 to 3,000 by the same year. LASALLE-SIA will move to its new city campus with state-of-the-art facilities by 2006. Work on our new Singapore Campus has already started and the building design was recently featured at the Architecture International Biennale, in Venice, Italy.

"LASALLE-SIA's aim to be a premier Singapore-based international arts institution will add to the vibrancy of Singapore's Global Schoolhouse Programme. Besides significantly increasing their foreign student intake, LASALLE-SIA will also be developing new programmes and research activities to create new areas of thought leadership. We welcome their growth plans and encourage the industry to pursue these initiatives as we continue to build up Singapore as a worldclass education hub for local and international students," said Mr Kenneth Tan, Director, Services, Singapore Economic Development Board.

New Initiatives
New Degrees to be Launched for July 2005 intake

LASALLE will launch a School of Film beginning with a BA (Hons) degree with postgraduate degree in the years to follow.
New programmes for July 2005 intake include:
o MA Art Therapy
o MA Arts & Cultural Management
o MA Curatorial Studies
o MA Design by Project
o MA Ceramics
o MA Public Art
o MA Directing (Theatre and Film)
o BA (Hons) Film
o BA (Hons) Contemporary Asian Theatre Studies
o BA (Hons) Performance Design
o BA (Hons) Music (with specialisations in Jazz, Western Classical Music, South-east Asian Music and Popular Music)
Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore

Newly established by LASALLE-SIA, the Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore is devoted to the exhibition and research of international and contemporary Asian art. It aims, through its dynamic programme of exhibitions at its exhibition facility, the Earl Lu Gallery, and through its extensive programme of publications, conferences and research activities, to contribute to the discourses surrounding contemporary art in Asia.

International Museum of Design Singapore

Apart from housing five world-class performance spaces equipped with the latest in theatre entertainment technology, the new campus will also be home to the International Museum of Design Singapore (iMODS), which aims to be one of the world’s leading museums of design, fashion and architecture. Said Professor Ely: “The world’s leading designers will participate in our talks and workshops as we nurture new design talent in exhibitions and commissions at the museum and in our international touring programme. The International Museum of Design Singapore will house a permanent collection of the Classic Design Icons of the World to inspire the next generation of Designers in Singapore.”

The iMODS website will offer information about exhibitions and other events at the museum, and will showcase the latest innovations in the dynamic field of multimedia at the Digital Design Museum. It will provide an invaluable research resource on all the designers, architects, materials and technologies featured at the museum. iMODS will link with the Design Museum in London, the UK’s largest museum provider of design education resources.

International Operations

Plans for three new offshore campuses have been successfully negotiated with international partners including a Perth Campus in 2005 and Sydney in 2006. Discussions are well advanced with two partners in the USA for joint provision from 2005; and, in Japan agreement has been reached for significant operations in Anime and student/staff transfer from 2007.

Among the partnerships are:

The world’s largest provider of Animation
The Flanders Fashion Institute
Digital Hollywood (Japan)
The Royal College of Art, London
Stephen F Austin University, Texas
University of Notre Dame Australia
Notre Dame University, Indiana.

In addition, in 2005 LASALLE-SIA will launch our International Learning Portal under the direction of Dr Belinda Tynan to provide degrees and higher degrees in Art and Design, on-line, to students around the world.

International Search for
Artistic Director, Singapore Biennale 2006

A global search is now on for a dynamic Artistic Director to helm the Singapore Biennale 2006. Singapore’s inaugural visual arts biennale is set to enhance Singapore’s presence in the regional and international arts scene as a key facilitator and centre for contemporary art. The Singapore Biennale is organised by the National Arts Council and the National Heritage Board of Singapore and will take place from September to November in 2006.

The Singapore Biennale aims to be a global, Asian and national forum on the ever-changing concepts of contemporary culture and visual arts. It seeks to engage cultural discussions among communities and audiences as well as address contemporary expressions in relation to identity, history and region.

The eventual thematic framework of the Biennale will be jointly developed with the appointed Artistic Director who will have the support of a team of curators.

The position of Artistic Director is open to candidates of any nationality from the cultural field, with the requisite experience in cultural project planning and management, as well as in research and publication. Candidates need to submit a two page response to the biennale concept in the form of a conceptual, curatorial and/or programming framework, in addition to a resume of their relevant experience.

Artist Tan Thian Joo presents a solo exhibition at Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce & Industry, in which he showcases more than 25 works of art. In this exhibition, the artist employs two different styles of oil paintings. Firstly, he uses pointillistic strokes and vivacious colours to create vibrant images of landscapes and lotus ponds. Secondly, Thian Joo harnesses the interplay of shadow and light to enhance the perception of space and depth in his still life paintings of fresh fruits.

Date: 30 Dec 2004 - 2 Jan 2005
Time: 10 a.m. - 7 p.m.
Venue: Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce & Industry (47 Hill Street),

Latest news

instinc has been transformed into a physical space. I have moved into this new space,

located in Chinatown. This is very exciting for me as I will finally get a space not only

to work in, but also to exhibit my works as well as some collaborative works. I hope that

with this space, I can work with other artists and do some collaborations with them.

Please feel free to email me at if you are interested to work together.

I also hope that with this space, there will be a place to interact with other artists,

exchange ideas and maybe even crtique one another's works.

Welcome to my humble space, instinc.
