    ::: ABOUT CURATORIAL ROUNDTABLE 04

    What is the state of curatorship in Southeast Asia today? Does the profession really exist here, or is it more of a responsibility, shared amongst artists, writers, teachers, organizers and others? What are our expectations of a curator, and how do we identify good curating? This informal roundtable at Future Perfect will bring together 3 very different arts professionals from the region, to discuss the place of curatorial thinking in and alongside their practices. Each will introduce some of their projects, and reflect on the impact of curatorship, past, present and future.

    As part of Curating Lab 2014’s curatorial-intensive, the public symposium When Does an Exhibition Begin and End? brought together curators and artists working in Singapore to discuss their recent and ongoing projects. Addressing the format of the exhibition in terms of duration and process, the symposium consisted of two complimentary sessions that reflected on the 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 further pondered on how the exhibition and today's art institutions are undergoing similar transformations and will considered how exhibitions produce knowledge through the format of conversations between curators and artists.

    In the first session Shabbir Hussain Mustafa (Curator, National Gallery Singapore) and artist Charles Lim, recently announced as Singapore’s Venice Biennale 2015 representatives, talked about their ongoing professional collaboration including Lim's long-term SEA STATE project and the related solo exhibition In Search of Raffles’ Light (NUS Museum, 24 October 2013–27 April 2014). Mustafa and Lim addressed these projects' engagement with the maritime history of Singapore in its intersection with the present while speculating about their approach to future exhibitions.

    In the second session Anca Rujoiu and Vera Mey (Curators, CCA — Centre for Contemporary Art, Singapore) discussed their recent project The Disappearance (CCA, 5–6 April 2013), which took place during the dismantling of a previous exhibition "as a durational event unfolding over two days including a continuous series of manifestations". Rujoiu and Mey were joined by participating artist Shubigi Rao who discussed her project Visual Snow (2014), presented during The Disappearance as an ongoing part of her biographical study of "the reclusive S. Raoul".

    Within the context of Curating Lab 2014, "When Does An Exhibition Begin and End?" was treated as an occasion to reflect on the role of a symposium and its public within curatorial practice. It counted on the engagement of Curatorial-Intensive participants who live-tweeted proceedings, mapped concepts of the discussions, and devised approaches to documenting and reporting the day for those not physically present.

    The Symposium was moderated by artist, curator and writer Heman Chong and Barcelona-based curatorial office Latitudes (Max Andrews and Mariana Cánepa Luna).
