Artist

Jason Wee

Singapore


Jason Wee lives and work in Singapore and New York.

Jason Wee is an artist and a writer. His practice takes up the dilemmas, conflicts and varieties of parallax in people's interpretation of specific histories and spaces. These spaces may be an island, a school, cinema, city or museum, the events of historical moments of particular intensity. These events and spaces are, for him, conundrums of enigma, idealism and unexplored futures.

He founded and runs Grey Projects, an alternative art space and residency that focuses on nascent practices and experimental curatorship. He is an editor for Softblow.com. He was previously editor of Vehicle arts journal, published by Plastique Kinetic Worms. He was a 2005-2006 Studio Fellow at the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program.

He has shown in the Chelsea Art Museum, Photo New York (New York), Casino Luxembourg (Luxembourg), ifa galerie (Stuttgart and Berlin), Singapore Art Museum, Singapore Biennale, Valentine Willie (Manila).

He completed a residency at Artspace, Sydney in December 2007. He was an Artist-in-Residence in the ISEA 2008. He was a Creator-in-Residence at Tokyo Wonder Site in 2009.

He was part of the 2008 inaugural show for 8Q, Singapore Art Museum’s new contemporary art wing. He was the 2008 Young Artist Award winner for visual arts in Singapore. He was the 2009 Voters’ Prize winner at the Singapore Art Museum.

In 2010, he co-curated the acclaimed Beyond LKY exhibition and co-organized The Future of Exhibition at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Singapore. In 2011, he published My Suit (Math Paper Press) and is a contributor to Petit Mort (Forever and Today Press) as well as upcoming publications on photography and installation art.

His performance script Tongues, co-written with Sean Tobin, was a commissioned work of the Singapore Fringe Festival and premiered at the National Museum Singapore in February 2012. Tongues has also been published by Math Paper Press in 2012.

His work has been reviewed in Artnews, New York Times, Newsweek, Wall Street Journal, International Herald Tribune, Time Out Singapore, Singapore Architects, Art Art Pacific as well as other Asian publications.
