NTU CCA Singapore Residencies hosts artists, curators, critics and scholars. At its core is a research driven studio programme dedicated to facilitating the production and creation of work, knowledge and research by established and emerging artists from Singapore and abroad. The Residencies programme is an integral part of the NTU CCA Singapore’s mission as a research centre. Dedicated to hosting artists and facilitating a short- and long-term visiting programme for curators and scholars, the Residencies programme aims to work as a catalyst for critical practices and build discourses that are especially resonant in the region. Studio space and residencies slots are also specifically reserved for Singapore and Southeast Asian artists to further commit to development of a regional network and research that is contextually specific. The selection process for residents begins with external nominators. After nomination, the NTU CCA Singapore Artist-in-Residence Committee makes a selection based on merit and the appropriateness of experience to undertake a research-based residency. In addition to artists, the programme also invites curators and researchers from various disciplines such as architecture and the humanities, thus opening a new gateway for accessing practices and discourses.
