An artist residency programme is built on hospitality. It begins with an invitation. It receives, welcomes and brings people and objects together in the spirit of creative production and friendship. The first Australia-Singapore Joint Artist Residency exchange programme, a partnership between the Australian War Memorial and the National Museum of Singapore is no different in this respect—but it was more than just that. Moreover, it was unique in that it called for the generosity of sharing ‘histories’. Beyond responding to a shared history, it called for the artists to share the process of historical research and produce artwork from a shared experience.

This panel, which brings together the artists and curators behind After the Fall: Artworks by Angela Tiatia and Debbie Ding, presents a behind-the-scenes perspective of the production of the artworks alongside reflections by the curators on the historical legacies of cultural exchange that arise from Australia and Singapore’s experience of WWII. Moderated by Ryan Johnston, Head of Art, Australian War Memorial, the panel will address the contemporary importance of memory, of shared experiences and of art based on shared histories.
