Tropical Lab 13

Tropical Lab is the brainchild of Milenko Prvacki, Senior Fellow at LASALLE. It is an intensive and highly engaging art camp that brings together more than 20 students from various art colleges and institutions around the world. The events include a series of workshops, talks and seminars guided by established international and Singaporean artists, culminating in an exhibition hosted by the Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore at LASALLE.
Aims and Objectives
• Expand the views of the participants, exchange experiences and to stimulate creative thinking through a collaborative approach. 
• Create a positive environment that will stimulate and cultivate minds, imaginations, emotional (intuitive) consciousness, and cultural sensibilities of the emerging generation of young artists and students.
• Establish LASALLE as an institution that offers an environment for regional and international students to carry out research and advance their art practice in a short period. This will strengthen the value and potential of having a programme that is culturally relevant to a range of local, regional, and international students.

Tropical Lab in spite of…

In the maelstrom of COVID-19, arts activities globally have come to a standstill. Faced with interruption, forced to virtualise or succumbed to damage, everything is on hold, in absentia, on a wait list. LASALLE’s Tropical Lab is no different and will take a hiatus this year.

To remain connected and nurture continued engagement with artists and art institutions in the Tropical Lab network, Image and Sound In Spite Of… is a platform to share LASALLE’s creative response in this time of closure and silence. A culminating showcase of work created in a time of extreme social isolation by our staff and alumni.

This is not a gallery, white cube or a stage. It is a space filled with the content of image, sound, movement and text. A sharing, connecting point.
