ILHAM received more than 360 applications for the ILHAM Art Show 2022. Applications were reviewed by a selection panel including Rahel Joseph, Director, ILHAM Gallery, Shabbir Hussain Mustafa, Senior Curator, National Gallery Singapore, and Zoe Butt, Artistic Director, The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre, Vietnam.   

“The pandemic and the subsequent lockdowns have been very challenging for the arts community. We felt that that the ILHAM Art Show, an initiative designed to encourage artists to experiment and make new work through the awarding of art production grants would be a great way to support artists. We were pleasantly surprised to receive such a large number of applications and our panel had a very difficult time in determining the final list of artists. There were so many worthy applications”, said Rahel Joseph, Gallery Director, ILHAM Gallery.
