Title

The Making of an Institution – Ownership, Development, and Aspirations: Performance and Public Discussion

Description

25 Feb 2017, Sat 03:00 PM - 05:00 PM
The Single Screen, Block 43 Malan Road

Who owns a public institution? How does an institution balance the different sets of expectations held by its various stakeholders? What is the role of an international advisory board and how does it contribute to the institution’s development within a global perspective? Shifting the top-down operational model, can an institution learn from artists and incorporate artistic methodologies into its own structure? To address such questions, this session brings together several members of the NTU CCA Singapore’s International Advisory Board into a public discussion with representatives of the Centre’s stakeholders. The session will be moderated by Founding Director Ute Meta Bauer and preceded by Heman Chong’s performance Words, They, Wrote (2015 – ongoing). Utilising words written or spoken by several artists, the performance generates a moment of introspection opening up a space for the artists’ thoughts on their own lives and works.
