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

Over two weeks, 22 students from international art schools and institutions undertake workshops and seminars in Singapore exploring various aspects of history, geography and aesthetics. 

Erase is the theme of this year’s camp and explores how we make sense of, and represent history, in cultural environments that are increasingly dominated by ‘fake news’. 

The exhibition presents works in a range of media created by the participants during this year’s camp.
