Jason Wee (b. 1979, Singapore) is an artist and a writer working between contemporary art, architecture, poetry and photography. His art practice contends with sources of singular authority in favour of polyphony and difference. He transforms these histories and spaces into various visual and written materials, and is keenly interested in their secrets and their futures, their idealisms and their conundrums. Wee is the founder and director of Grey Projects, an artists’ space, library and residency that focuses on curatorship, new writing, design propositions and art.
Wee has exhibited at the Chelsea Art Museum (NY, USA), Casino Luxembourg (Luxembourg), Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen (Germany), Singapore Art Museum, and ArtScience Museum amongst others. Artist-in-residencies include Artspace Sydney, ISEA 2008, Tokyo Wonder Site, Contemporary Art Japan, NTU Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore and Gyeonggi Creation Center, Korea. He was a 2005-2006 Studio Fellow at the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program, and was awarded the Young Artist Award for visual arts in Singapore in 2008 and the Voters’ Prize from the Singapore Art Museum in 2009. Wee was recently a residency fellow at ZK/U Berlin.
