Jeffrey has been teaching at LASALLE College of the Arts since 1997, during which he helped to develop its art history programmes. In 2009, he designed the first Master’s programme that focuses on Asian modern and contemporary art histories. Before joining LASALLE, Jeffrey was a curator at the then National Museum where he was overseeing the collection of Buddhist and Indian artefacts. As a museum curator, Jeffrey curated exhibitions on Tibetan Buddhist Art, The Maritime Silk Routes and Alamkara: 5000 Years of India.
As an art historian, Jeffrey undertook the first extensive study of the history of sculpture in pre-and post-war Singapore, for which he has done pioneering research. In his professional capacity, Jeffrey has curated visual arts exhibitions and contributed essays to both local and overseas exhibition catalogues. He is a frequent public speaker on art history at museums, universities and galleries, and conducts short courses in art history which are extremely popular. Jeffrey is also a regular commentator on the local visual arts scene.
