What's on


Academic Programme

The Research programme aims to connect academic research with other forms of knowledge production. The NTU 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.


MA & PhD Programme

Under NTU’s School of Art, Design and Media (ADM)‘s Master of Art (Research) and Doctor of Philosophy programmes, NTU CCA Singapore offers a stream in Spaces of the Curatorial. The Centre aims to connect research on Spaces of the Curatorial in an expanded notion of curating in connection to the diverse histories and infrastructural specificities of the region and beyond. Under this umbrella, students currently carry out research on topics such as art and law, as well as art infrastructures and exhibition histories in the Southeast Asian region.

The research-oriented MA & PhD programmes will provide students with the opportunity to pursue independent research in the new ADM research areas of Art in Public Space and Curating the City. ADM offers a choice between two options of study within the MA (Research) and PhD programmes: by research or by research with a practical component.
