ANNUAL PROGRAMME 2016: Our relationship with the natural world, the unseen landscapes and borders of the sea, the complex narrative of political struggles, and the vexing issue of rapid urbanisation in emerging economies – these are some of the stories that will unfold at NTU Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore this year.

2016 begins with the presentation of two Pavilions from the 56th Venice Biennale. Starting with They Come to Us without a Word by pioneering video and performance artist Joan Jonas which was first commissioned for the U.S. Pavilion by the MIT List Visual Arts Center and awarded a prestigious 'Special Mention' by the International Jury of the Biennale, and SEA STATE by Charles Lim for the Singapore Pavilion, a decade-long project examining the biophysical contours of Singapore through the lens of the sea.

The NTU CCA Singapore will present New Delhi based Amar Kanwar's critically acclaimed works examining how political struggles are presented and represented, in the artist's first major solo exhibition in Southeast Asia during the second half of the year. This is followed by Incomplete Urbanism, a creative laboratory launched in parallel with the Singapore Biennale 2016 exploring the indeterminacy and changeability of urban living, taking the work of Singapore architect William Lim and the Asian Urban Lab as a point of departure.

Beyond exhibition programming, other highlights in 2016 include the second iteration of the international symposium The Geopolitical and the Biophysical: a structured conversation on Art and Southeast Asia, first held on the occasion of the Singapore Pavilion at the 56th Venice Biennale and to be expanded on during the SEA STATE exhibition at NTU CCA Singapore. The Residencies Programme welcomes its third cycle of Artists-in-Residence with 20 artists and collectives from Singapore, Asia and for the first time Africa and South America. The residency is dedicated to knowledge production and facilitating the exchange of ideas, positioning NTU CCA Singapore as an artistic and cultural forum for critical discourse in Southeast Asia.

In line with NTU CCA Singapore's dynamic spirit, the Centre's programme will evolve throughout the year, strengthened by a rigorous programme of Exhibition (de)Tours, film screenings, talks, workshops, symposiums and open studios.
