About the Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore (CCA)
The Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA) is a research center of Nanyang Technological University (NTU), developed with support from the Economic Development Board, Singapore.  Under the leadership of Ute Meta Bauer, who joined NTU from MIT to serve as CCA’s Founding Director and Professor at the School of Art, Design and Media, the Centre officially opened in October 2013.  The CCA embraces academic and scholarly research, and views contemporary art as a form of knowledge production in its own right.  Through a holistic approach, the CCA’s three main areas of activity – exhibitions, residencies, and research – are intertwined and feed into each other, shaping organically the profile and program of the institution.

About Professor Ute Meta Bauer, Founding Director of CCA
Prof. Bauer came to Singapore from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, U.S.A., where she was an Associate Professor for Visual Art, the Founding Director of the Program in Art, Culture, and Technology (ACT) and Director of the MIT Visual Arts Program.  For over 25 years, she has worked as a curator of exhibitions and presentations on contemporary art, film, video and sound, with a focus on trans-disciplinary formats.

No Country: Contemporary Art for South and Southeast Asia opens May 10 2014 at the Centre for Contemporary Art, Singapore  


From May 10 to July 20, the Centre for Contemporary Art will show No Country: Contemporary Art for South and Southeast Asia.
 
Part of the Guggenheim UBS MAP Global Art Initiative, No Country is curated by June Yap, Guggenheim UBS MAP Curator, South and Southeast Asia.  The exhibition will feature artists and collectives from Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, and the United Kingdom, and presents works of an array of media, spanning from sculpture and photography to painting and video installations.  No Country presents South and Southeast Asia in terms of transformation and trace, charting patterns of historical and contemporary influence within and beyond the region itself.
 
No Country was first presented in New York at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum last year (February 22–May 22, 2013), prior to its showing at the Asia Society Hong Kong Centre (October 30, 2013–February 16, 2014).  The presentation in Singapore brings the artworks back to the region from which many of the artists hail and calls for a closer examination of regional cultural representations and relations.
 
The artists in the Singapore presentation are as follow: Amar Kanwar (India), Arin Dwihartanto Sunaryo (Indonesia), Bani Abidi (Pakistan), Navin Rawanchaikul (Thailand), Norberto Roldan (The Philippines), Poklong Anading (The Philippines), Reza Afisina (Indonesia), Sheela Gowda (India), Shilpa Gupta (India), Sopheap Pich (Cambodia), Tang Da Wu (Singapore), Tayeba Begum Lipi (Bangladesh), The Otolith Group (United Kingdom), Tran Luong (Vietnam), Tuan Andrew Nguyen (Vietnam), and Vincent Leong (Malaysia).

 
The exhibition is complemented by a solid public program, gallery, and school tours as well as online activities.  For more information about them, please visit: gillmanbarracks.com/cca
