NTU CCA Singapore takes its five-year anniversary as an opportunity to invite the newly-appointed International Advisory Board (IAB) members to a public discussion on art institutions, missions and visions, and potentialities for change. Having their own institutions as case studies and being placed within a global perspective, the panelists will share thoughts on the role of a national research centre such as NTU CCA Singapore within the local arts ecosphere. How does it function as a practical and social construction for a community? What are the current concerns it should address?
