Alongside artist, curator and writer Heman Chong, Latitudes led the first phase of Curating Lab 2014, a week-long Curatorial-Intensive during which 11 recent graduates engaged with the practice of exhibition making through lectures, workshops, tutorials concluding with a symposium and a field trip to Hong Kong (16–20 June).

Curating Lab 2014 focussed on contemporary art and curatorial practices that engage with the exhibition as a site of knowledge production; one that is multifarious, relational and participatory, providing scopes for intents and slippages, open to interpretative articulations and re-articulations, subjected to varying contexts of exhibition-making and to the very audiences that perform and shapes its production. 

The week-long curatorial-intensive concluded on Saturday 14 June with the public symposium "When does an exhibition begin and end?", convened and moderated by Chong and Latitudes. The event counted with the participation of Shabbir Hussain Mustafa (Curator, National Gallery Singapore), Charles Lim (artist); Anca Rujoiu and Vera Mey (Curators, Centre for Contemporary Art, Singapore) and artist Shubigi Rao.

"When Does an Exhibition Begin and End?" consisted of two complimentary sessions that reflected on an exhibition's capacity to articulate its own making and incorporate its own history. In the same way that the Internet has untethered television from fixed schedules and newspapers from print deadlines, the symposium pondered on how the exhibition and today's art institutions are undergoing similar transformations. Should exhibitions embrace or resist becoming more like broadcasting or live-publishing?

Following on the Curatorial-Intensive week, the overseas Field Trip to Hong Kong (16–20 June) exposed participants to international curatorial practices and situated their curatorial processes within the region. Participants visited a range of private and public institutions including Spring Workshop, Asia Art Archive, Para/Site and M+ Museum.

#CuratingLab2014


Curating Lab 2014 is an eight month-long programme offering final year students, recent graduates and young curators exposure into contemporary curatorial perspectives and practices.

Organised by NUS Museum with support from the National Arts Council of Singapore, participants are involved in a week-long curatorial-intensive designed as a workshop completed with an overseas field trip, later followed by internship assignments to contemporary art spaces in the city (July–December 2014), concluding with a final exhibition project to be presented in January 2015.

Junto con el artista, comisario y escritor Heman Chong, Latitudes condujo la primera fase del Curating Lab 2014, un curso intensivo de una semana de duración durante el cual 11 graduados debatieron entorno al formato expositivo a través de ponencias, seminarios y tutoriales, concluyendo con un simposio y un viaje a Hong Kong (16–20 de junio).

Curating Lab 2014 se centró en las prácticas curatoriales de arte contemporáneo enfocadas en la exposición como un espacio de producción de conocimiento: un espacio multiforme, relacional y participativo que permite intentos y desviaciones, que se abre a articulaciones y re-articulaciones. Un espacio que es sometido a los diferentes contextos de exhibición y a las alteraciones que las mismas audiencias provocan dando forma a su producción final.

El curso concluyó el sábado 14 de junio con el simposio "When Does an Exhibition Begin and End?" (¿Cuándo comienza y acaba una exposición?), concebido y moderado por Chong y Latitudes. El evento contó con la participación de Shabbir Hussain Mustafa (Comisario, National Gallery Singapore), Charles Lim (artista); Anca Rujoiu y Vera Mey (Comisarias, Centre for Contemporary Art, Singapore) y la artista Shubigi Rao.

El simposio "When Does an Exhibition Begin and End?" consistió en dos sesiones complementarias que reflexionaron sobre la capacidad de una exposición en articular su propia producción y su propia historia. Del mismo modo en que Internet ha provocado que la televisión haya liberado su programación de horarios fijos y que los periódicos tengan plazos de impresión, el simposio reflexionó sobre cómo las instituciones y las exposiciones han sufrido similares transformaciones. ¿Deben las exposiciones adoptar o resistir convertirse en plataformas para publicación o la retransmisión en vivo de sus propios procesos de producción?

La primera fase de Curating Lab 2014 finalizó con un viaje a Hong Kong (16–20 de junio) que expuso a los participantes a la diversidad de prácticas curatoriales de la región, visitando una serie de instituciones públicas y privadas tales como Spring Workshop, Asia Art Archive, Para/Site y M+ Museum.
