Curator-in-residence

Committed to supporting artists, curators, and researchers by offering them time and space to pursue their research without the pressure of deadlines and production commitments, the Residencies Programme values the open-ended nature of artistic research and embraces multiform expressions of creative enquiry. Aiming to facilitate the production of knowledge, this studio-based programme is dedicated to established and emerging artists and serves as platform for critical exchange in Southeast Asia. The Residencies Programme offers a wide spectrum of programmes aimed at sharing the process of artistic research with the public - Residencies OPEN / Studio Sessions / Insights, which range from open studios, artists’ talks, conversations, performances, and screenings. The Residencies Programme unfolds through annual cycles and runs by nomination only. Every year, a rotating pool of curators and arts professionals from all over the world is invited to nominate two artists for the residency. The nominated artists are subsequently invited to submit a research proposal along with their portfolio and CV. Ultimately, the Residencies Committee, an international panel of experts, reviews the submitted materials and designates the artists who are awarded the residency.

Images are in motion. As their nature keeps evolving, the metamorphosis of the imaginary is subject to constant acceleration. Where are images headed? And, more importantly, how are they changing? Over the last twenty years, the dialogue between art and cinema, film and moving images, black box and white cube, has been one of the most exciting and innovative areas of study generating a wide range of exhibitions, festivals, academic research, publications, and symposia. Yet, in spite of thriving discourses and practices centred on the moving image and film, large-scale exhibitions and festivals, save for a few exceptions, fail to experiment with formats and venues. In this lecture, Andrea Lissoni will reflect on his own display strategies for time-based works arguing that artists’ films and moving images are “modern classics.”
