Singapore Art Museum international residency

Singapore Art Museum (SAM)’s international residency programme is opening applications for its third cycle. This cycle has a focus on the notions of allyship and solidarities, building alternative knowledges, and flowing & thinking in betweens. SAM Residencies welcomes artists, curators, educators, and creative practitioners to apply for the 2025/2026 cycle, slated to run between April 2025 and September 2026.

Since its inception in 2021, SAM Residencies has hosted over 50 residents across 30 countries in SAM’s industrial warehouse space at Tanjong Pagar Distripark. Conceived as an incubator for new approaches to art thinking and making, the residency programme offers a platform for artistic experimentation, supporting practitioners throughout their creative process, professional and artistic development, and international network building across its four residency types.

Residents are encouraged to involve communities and the public through various activations and presentations, such as talks, workshops, screenings, field trips, and new experimental formats.
