NTU Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore presents Speakers’ Corner, a selection of video documentation of public programmes and related research material from the Centre’s archives.

Speakers’ Corner serves as a metaphor for public discourse created through the various public programmes of NTU CCA Singapore since its inception in October 2013. Speakers’ Corner presents a range of discussions held and questions under what conditions and parameters we create our knowledge, and in the languages employed. All together this is what creates a public discourse or a “speakers’ corner” within an institution, which can take forms of the academic, literary, or performative. It opens up the possibility for encounters with the known and unknown, the expected and unexpected, as a form of its lively activities.

NTU CCA Singapore’s public programmes reflect on our present world through culture and art. Over the two month installation, Speakers’ Corner will be presented in four chapters: “Islanded”, “Incidental Scripts”, “Proximities and Encounters”, and “Ready, Steady, Go”. Each chapter relates to an exhibition held at NTU CCA Singapore such as Incidental Scripts (2014) by Yang Fudong (China) or Sea State (2016) by Charles Lim Yi Yong (Singapore) or to invited local and international Artists-in-Residence and their artistic research and practices like Heman Chong (Singapore) or Zac Langdon-Pole (New Zealand/Germany). On a broader scheme, the events offer an expanded reading and understanding of the complexity and diversity of the contemporary art production of today and how it intersects with current developments in culture, society, and politics.

 

The Speakers’ Corner programme includes:

Islanded, 26 May – 11 June 2017

  • Content from The Geopolitical and the Biophysical: a structured conversation on Art and Southeast Asia in context symposium Part II, 17 – 18 June 2016

  • Content from Yang Fudong: Incidental Scripts, 12 December 2014 — 1 March 2015

  • Content from Theatrical Fields, 22 August 2014 — 2 November 2014
