For a more in-depth perspective on appreciating art, drop by the NTU Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore (NTU CCA Singapore), a research centre belonging to tertiary institution Nanyang Technological University (NTU).

It regularly hosts events dealing with contemporary art including exhibitions, live performances, film screenings, open studios and talks by visiting artists and curators. The programme line-up brings together established international and local artists and each exhibition is accompanied by public events that provide more insight to the shows.

The other two areas of the NTU CCA Singapore are residencies and research & education, which are intertwined with their exhibitions components, and together, they shape the profile and programme of the institution.

A home to international art
The Contemporary Arts Center is located at art cluster Gillman Barracks, host to major art events such as the Singapore Biennale.

While you’re at the NTU CCA Singapore, which is located at art cluster Gillman Barracks, don’t forget to explore the rest of the 6.4-hectare arts enclave, which contains 11 international galleries housed in conserved colonial barracks. Gillman Barracks also hosts the bi-monthly, Art After Dark, a series of late night open house events so don’t miss them.
