Tropical Lab is an annual international art camp and exhibition organised by LASALLE College of the Arts and led by Senior Fellow Milenko Prvacki.

Over two weeks, artists and students from international art schools and institutions present their work and undertake workshops and seminars exploring various aspects of history, geography and aesthetics. Sense is this year’s theme; the camp explores how we make sense of the world today and how we give meaning to things. The exhibition presents works in a range of media made by the twenty-five participants.
