Title

Residencies Rewired

Description

The COVID-19 global pandemic cuts straight to the core of a Programme premised on international mobility, unscripted encounters, and site-specific engagements. Ongoing health risks and travel restrictions have moved the scheduled residencies of overseas artists into a zone of impossibility. As much as these unprecedented conditions have unravelled established procedures and standard protocols for action, they also commanded resilience and adaptability, urging us to rethink concepts of distance, modes of engagement, and pathways to collaboration.

In order to pursue organic connections across national borders and foster collaborations beyond the restrictions on bodily movement, NTU CCA Singapore launched Residencies Rewired, a project initiated and overseen by Dr Anna Lovecchio, Curator, Residencies, which is in line with the Centre’s long-standing commitment to support art practitioners and artistic research by facilitating meaningful engagements with the specificities of the local.

Through an Open Call, local researchers have been appointed to act as Liaisons (Artistic Research) to work in close, albeit remote, collaboration with overseas artists over a period of three months (December 2020 – February 2021) and support the development of their research projects. Residencies Rewired will culminate in a series of public programmes to be conducted towards the end of the project.
