b. 1986, Singapore
Lives and works in Singapore

Moses Tan’s work explores histories that intersect with queer theory and politics while looking at melancholia and shame as points of departure. Working with drawing, video and installation, his interest lies in the use of subtlety and codes in the articulation of narratives. He graduated from LASALLE College of the Arts with a BA(Hons) in Fine Arts and a BA(Hons) in Chemistry and Biological Chemistry from Nanyang Technological University, in Singapore.

He was awarded the ‘Noise Singapore Award for Art and Design’ in 2014, ‘Winston Oh Travel Research Grant’ in 2016, and the ‘LASALLE Award for Academic Excellence’ in 2016. He has exhibited across Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia, amongst others, including spaces such as Grey Projects (Singapore), 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art (Australia), Hidden Space (Hong Kong), Indiana University (USA), and Kunst Im Dialog (Germany). In 2018, Tan completed the Equal Justice Residency at Sante Fe Art Institute (USA).
