CCA Exhibition

杨福东:偶发的剧本
Yang Fudong: Incidental Scripts
12 December 2014 – 1 March 2015

The Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore presents the first major solo exhibition of Yang Fudong in Southeast Asia. Yang Fudong is one of China's best known contemporary artists who has gained international acclaim for his photographic, film and video works. The exhibition presents four of Yang’s works, each emblematic of his multi-faceted approach towards the creation of visual imageries that complicates our understanding of reality/fiction, and our experience of space/time. 
 

The Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore is a research centre of Nanyang Technological University, developed with support from the Economic Development Board, Singapore. Located in Gillman Barracks alongside a cluster of international galleries, the Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore is led by Founding Director Professor Ute Meta Bauer. The Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore takes a holistic approach towards art and culture, intertwining its three platforms: Exhibitions, Residencies and Research.

The Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore positions itself as a centre for critical discourse and experimental practices for Singapore, the region and beyond. It aims to play an active role within the local art scene, as well as being a part of the development of regional and international art infrastructures.

CCA Residencies hosts artists, curators, critics and scholars. At its core is a studio programme for artists dedicated to facilitating the production and creation of work, knowledge and research by established and emerging artists from Singapore and from other parts of the world. The programme will position Singapore as a forum of cultural and artistic exchange in Asia.

Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore Founding Director Professor Ute Meta Bauer said, “Unique to the CCA Residencies programme is an emphasis on research and knowledge production complementing contemporary artistic production. This underlines the centre’s position as a young research centre and new gateway for accessing practices and discourses within Southeast Asia. The CCA Residencies programme feeds into our holistic approach of intertwining three platforms: exhibitions, residencies and research.”

Residencies are a productive and impactful way to support practice and research on contemporary art. The artists for the CCA studios were selected by a committee of art professionals in Singapore after a rigorous nomination process from curatorial professionals. The selection process includes an assessment of their research proposals that will contribute to the artists’ current or new research project.

CCA Research

The Research programme aims to connect academic research with other forms of knowledge production. The Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore hosts visiting scholars of various disciplines whose research focuses on discourses addressing Singapore and the region. Its current research clusters engage with questions of postcolonial spaces, migration, diaspora, old and new trade routes.
