Residencies: Insights - Talk by curator Meiya Cheng, Taipei
14 Oct 2015 - 14 Oct 2015  7.30 – 9.00pm

Meiya Cheng will look at two exhibition projects, The Great Ephemeral (New Museum, 2015) and Trading Futures (co-curated with Pauline Yao, Taipei Contemporary Art Centre, 2012) relating them to NTU CCA Singapore's overarching curatorial framework PLACE.LABOUR.CAPITAL. Cheng's discussion explores the speculative nature of the global market, including the hypothetical systems of labour, value, consumption, and desire.

Meiya Cheng is a freelance curator living and working in Taipei. From 2006–2009 she was the curator of MoCA, Taipei. Cheng participated in the founding and operation of Taipei Contemporary Art Center (TCAC) since 2009 and was the chair of TCAC from 2012–2014. Her selected curated exhibitions include: Augmenting the World (The 6th Taipei Digital Art Festival, international section, 2011) and 6th Queens International (co-curated with Hitomi Iwasaki), Queens Museum, NYC, 2013.
