As a follow-up feature to Issue 13.1: after|thought – an exhibition, s/pores is pleased to feature an essay written by Wong Lee Min on the 2nd exhibition in curatingLAB: PHASE 03 – Objectum.

Objectum is an exhibition resulting from curatingLAB: PHASE 03:

Curating Lab 2012 offered recent graduates and young curators exposure into curatorial perspectives and practices. Organised by NUS Museum with support from the National Arts Council, the six-month programme began with a curatorial-intensive designed as a workshop, followed by internship assignments. Participants were guided by facilitators and mentors, working towards a final exhibition project. The programme centred on curatorial heterogeneities and contingencies, to be addressed as practices informed by conceptions of the nation and the global, spaces and their contexts, where modalities of practice are shaped and positions defined.
