Y- Lab is a unique Art x Tech convergence product innovation lab, housed in one of the largest museums in Southeast Asia, having received 1.8 million visitors in 2018. As a collaborative project between the National Gallery Singapore and Redshift Capital Partners, Y-Lab provides organizations and entrepreneurs an opportunity to launch or testbed their Art x Tech product innovation through one of three ways:
1. Enhancing a product with artistic input and applications to improve its functional and emotional experience
2. Taking art expressions one step further with complementary technology to deepen the artistic intent and experience
3. Testing or developing a product that may have twin applications in both within the arts and culture space (leveraging on the gallery's footfall and visitorship) but equally applicable in the other sectors due to its technical viability and use cases.
The resulting innovation are not only viable for the gallery, but also the larger Art & Cultural sector in Singapore. Y-Lab seeks to be an innovation hub for start-ups, patrons, museum professionals, investors, culture sector talents and visitors alike to co-create the future of cultural production and consumption in Singapore and beyond.
