This year, the 10th graduating batch represent the next generation of creatives: 164 undergraduates from Visual Communication, Product Design, Interaction Design, Digital Filmmaking, Photography & Animation.

The diverse range of works from illustrations, animations, films, photography, installation to design stands as a testament to the interdisciplinary teaching at the ADM. Stemming from their own experiences and concern for the world, the body of works reflect on the society in which we live today and produce a very diverse exhibition with regard to the choice of materials and subjects. Incorporating multiple media and pushing the boundaries of art and design, many works confront and scrutinize contemporary issues, such as migrant workers, gender stereotypes, shelter for abandoned children, etc.; others explore the overlooked aspects in our daily life or deal with nuanced feelings and emotions such as stress, mindfulness, nervousness, etc.

Exhibited at National Design Centre and National Library, the ADM Show 2018 welcomed public visitors and relevant industry partners to witness ‘The Next Wave’ of creative talents and helped build awareness for the fields of Design and Art in Singapore. ‘The Next Wave’ will soon be joining the local art scene and contributing to art and design practices, academia, research, industry and entrepreneurship, and continue to venture into new grounds.
