Curatorial & Research Residency || 01 Jan to 31 Jan 2024

Akram AHMADI TAVANA delves into the connections between contemporary practice and the history of art in Iran. Working as a writer, curator and teacher, Akram aspires to empower immigrant women through artmaking and education. For many years, Akram has been a volunteer teacher at an NGO in Tehran, which focuses on the empowerment of migrant women from Afghanistan. This interaction gradually became a subject for her research-based curatorial projects on art and migration.


While in residence, Akram will explore newer approaches to art education and pedagogy in Singapore and cultivate a research framework around these models. Akram will convene a series of art-making workshops and continuously record observations, anecdotes and memories from invited participants in an effort at reconsidering how social impact may be measured.
