In addition, it has further been selected by the Singapore Tourism Board to be part of the official programme of Grand Prix Season Singapore 2023 (GPSS). Part of the exhibiting artists are also alumni and members of LASALLE College of the Arts (LASALLE) and the University of the Arts Singapore (UAS), and the initiative received support also from cultural partners such as Art Galleries Association Singapore (AGAS) and the non-profit arts intermediary, Art Outreach Singapore.
