Showcase Manila

For the second phase of the critical residency programme, materialized articulations of proposed researches in Singapore and Manila show artistic thinking in progress and are an encounter with how a research residency unfolds: through the fostering of intellectual dialogue, shared lines of enquiry and the initiation of potential public discourse around the intersections between art, science, and technology.

Both Acts of Life partners, NTU CCA Singapore and MCAD, have a strong interest in supporting artistic research and education through being associated to Higher Education: NTU CCA Singapore is a National Research Centre of Nanyang Technological University and MCAD is part of the artistic community of the De La Salle – College of Saint Benilde’s School of Design and Arts.
Residents showcasing in Manila include:
Hung Duong (Vietnam)
Jennifer Katanyoutanant (Thailand)
Tromarama (Indonesia)
Ida Roscher (Germany)
Jayson Jimenez (Philippines)
Miljohn Ruperto (Philippines/US)
Stanya Kahn (United States)
Nuriye Tohermes (Germany)
