Based in Singapore for the last ten years, Tanya is a freelance writer and curator specialising in contemporary Southeast Asian art. She has an established and in-depth knowledge of the local and regional art scene and its history, the media scene, and a wide network of arts and media contacts, both in Singapore and throughout Southeast Asia.
Having held many roles with local art galleries, Tanya has had the pleasure of collaborating with artists such as the Gao Brothers and local favourites, Aiman, Nandita Mukand, and Justin Lee on curated projects and events.
As a published writer, she has written for various magazines and newspapers in the U.S. and for Art Republik, Plural Art Mag, and Art & Market in Singapore. She holds a Masters of Asian Art Histories from LASALLE College of the Arts Singapore, a Goldsmiths University of London partnership, as well as a recipient of the Winston Oh Postgraduate Research Grant Award. Her current research focusses on documenting audience reception of Southeast Asian performances by artists living in the diaspora and she recently lectured at the Asian Civilisations Museum on contemporary performance artist Melati Suryodarmo.
As a communications specialist, she has worked with past and current clients such as the Affordable Art Fair, Singapore, Singapore Pinacothéque de Paris and Louis Vuitton art exhibitions at Espace which has allowed her to work with artists such as Daniel Arsham and Gao Weigang.
