Artesan Gallery + Studio is differentiated by our creativity for constant reinventions in artistic and curatorial approaches, resulting in outstanding exhibitions. In 2009, the Art-on-Tour project was conceived. We took the lead in staging pop-in exhibitions across the country for general public viewing and exposure, with the intention of growing a wider audience to experience the dynamic and thriving pulse of contemporary Asian Art, encourage its accessibility - and increase visibility of our artists.
Over the last fifteen years, the gallery has curated over eighty exhibitions and engaged in major collaborations with the National University of Singapore Museum, National Arts Council (Singapore), The Lee Foundation (Singapore), LASALLE College of The Arts, ICA (Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore), The National Art Gallery (Singapore), The Singapore Art Museum, The National Center & Community for the Arts (Philippines), the Philippine Embassy (Singapore), the Philippine National Bank (Singapore), INSEAD (Singapore), the Singapore Tyler Print Institute, Nanyang Technological University, Ernst & Young (Singapore) and the prestigious Ateneo Art Gallery in Metromanila (Philippines).
Internationally, Artesan has curated shows in Florence and Venice (Italy), Basel (Switzerland) and Manila (Philippines).
