Lecture by:Dr. Ong Keng Sen
In the fourth and final lecture of the Curating No-thing series, Dr. Ong Keng Seng centralises on topics of festival dramaturgy and reconsidering value. Ong references the re-making of Singapore International Festival of the Arts (SIFA), which he directed between 2013-2017, to discuss the processes of curating no-thing within an institutionalised space. This lecture delves into the plasma of world-creating in festival-making: the intervention of an open, co-thinking space, and sharing ownership with the public.
“I never use the term programmer as I would like to think you are a curator and I hope you can own your work, or your institution can embrace the reality of what you do.” – Dr. Ong Keng Sen
In May 2020, T:>Works initiated its first virtual event, a series of alternative training and a shared space led by its Artistic Director, Dr. Ong Keng Sen for the Curators Academy. Titled Curating No-thing, it is the first thought leadership programme by an arts company. This programme looked at activating one’s communities through art and rethinking our relationships with money and production. Beginning with lectures, the series culminated with consultations and clinics in June 2020.
