NTU CCA Singapore presents an International Symposium dedicated to the late photographer, theorist, photography historian and critic, Allan Sekula.

3rd Sep, 2015

PRESS RELEASE: NTU CCA Singapore presents an international symposium dedicated to the late photographer, theorist, photography historian and critic, Allan Sekula. Situated within the context of Allan Sekula’s exhibition Fish Story, to be continued at NTU CCA Singapore, the symposium will mark a concluding point to the show and highlight the continued relevance of his work and writing on the theme of globalisation.

The programme of the symposium will focus on key themes underlying Allan Sekula’s practice including questions of critical realism in contemporary art, representation of labour as well as the vast topic of the sea as the “forgotten space” of the contemporary global economy.

The symposium will bring together art professionals who have collaborated with Allan Sekula across the years and who will share their insights and experience of working with the artist. The list of contributors comprises: Hilde Van Gelder (Director of the Lieven Gevaert Research Centre for Photography, Leuven), Carles Guerra (Director of the Fundació Antoni Tàpies, Barcelona), Roger Buergel (Director Johann Jacobs Museum, Zurich), Mercedes Vicente, Curator and Writer (PhD Candidate, Royal College of Art, London).

In the second part of the symposium, the complexities of a maritime world and a maritime nation unpacked by Allan Sekula in his extensive research will be grounded in the local context of Singapore, an important harbour in colonial and post-colonial times. Contributors to this discussion include Shabbir Hussain Mustafa (Curator for the Singapore Pavilion, 56th Venice Biennale) and Charles Lim (Artist for the Singapore Pavilion). The symposium will be moderated by Ute Meta Bauer (Founding Director, NTU CCA Singapore) and Anca Rujoiu (Curator, Exhibitions, NTU CCA Singapore).

The exhibition Fish Story, to be continued (3 July – 27 September 2015) brings together at NTU CCA Singapore core works of Allan Sekula’s research of the global maritime industry from the collections of Fond Regional d’art contemporain Bretagne, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York and Thyssen Bornemisza Art Contemporary (TBA21), Vienna. Curated by Ute Meta Bauer and Anca Rujoiu (NTU CCA Singapore), the exhibition introduces chapters from Fish Story (1988 – 1993) alongside two filmic extensions of the project, Lottery of the Sea (2006) and The Forgotten Space (2010), co-directed with the film theorist and director Nöel Burch.

In juxtaposition to Allan Sekula’s exhibition, NTU CCA Singapore invited the curator Mercedes Vicente (Darcy Lange Curator-at-Large) to present Darcy Lange: Hard, however, and useful is the small, day-to-day work (12 August – 27 September 2015). This selection of works by the late New Zealand artist Darcy Lange from the Darcy Lange Estate and Govett-Brewster Art Gallery, examines these two artistic practices that meet in a shared interest of representing labour, yet through different approaches.

Fish Story, to be continued and Darcy Lange: Hard, however, and useful is the small day-to-day work punctuate NTU CCA Singapore’s overarching narrative PLACE.LABOUR.CAPITAL.
