NTU Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore is pleased to announce the Artists-in-Residence for the 6th cycle of its Residencies Programme (April 2019–March 2020):

Irene Agrivina (Indonesia), Ang Song Nian (Singapore), Tanatchai Bandasak (Thailand), Rossella Biscotti (Italy/Belgium), Irina Botea Bucan and Jon Dean (Romania/United Kingdom),  Francisco Camacho Herrera (Colombia/Netherlands), Carolina Caycedo (United Kingdom/United States), Chang Wen-Hsuan (Taiwan), Baptist Coelho (India), Hikaru Fujii (Japan), Fyerool Darma (Singapore), Ho Tzu Nyen (Singapore), Suki Seokyeong Kang (South Korea), Munem Wasif (Bangladesh), Shelly Nadashi (Israel/Belgium), Alecia Neo (Singapore), Bridget Reweti (New Zealand), Wei Leng Tay (Singapore), Sung Tieu (Vietnam/United Kingdom), Iris Touliatou (Greece), Trevor Yeung (China/Hong Kong), Zarina Muhammad (Singapore)

As a research centre, we seek to provide artists with the opportunity to focus on their research and provide each Artist-in-Residence with a studio space and a monthly stipend. Foreign artists also receive accommodation and roundtrip travel to Singapore.

During the residency, lasting up to three months for international artists and up to six months for Singaporean artists, the residents receive support from the Centre’s curatorial team and also engage in conversation with the local arts community and visiting Curators-in-Residence. Furthermore, they benefit from Nanyang Technological University’s networks and resources, particularly those of the School of Art, Design and Media. Artists-in-Residence are part of the Centre’s cultural life and they share their practice through public programmes ranging from open studios, artist talks, panel discussions to screenings and performances.

The Residencies Programme has a global scope and is by nomination only. In the first four editions, the nominators were curators. Last year, we experimented with a peer-to-peer process with all nominators being artists themselves. For the 6th cycle, in an effort to try out different compasses to navigate the vast territory of contemporary art and reflect its diversity, we reached out to art writers and critics to put forth the nominations. 

Participants of the 6th cycle of the Residencies Programme have been selected by a review panel comprising Doryun Chong (Deputy Director and Chief Curator, M+, Hong Kong), Michelle Ho (Director, ADM Gallery, School of Art, Design and Media, NTU), Qinyi Lim (Curator, National Gallery Singapore), Patrick Piay (Assistant Director, Sector Development/Visual Arts, National Arts Council), chaired by Ute Meta Bauer (Founding Director, NTU CCA Singapore and Professor, School of Art, Design and Media, NTU).

Dr Anna Lovecchio, Curator of the Residencies Programme since September 2016, remarks: “Although only five years old, the Programme is rapidly growing into a solid platform for the advancement of critical discourse in this part of the world. We are committed to support artists in the development of their practice and to engage in long-term conversations that extend beyond the duration of the residency itself.”
