The Oceanic

The Oceanic marks the start of NTU CCA Singapore’s new overarching research topic CLIMATES. HABITATS. ENVIRONMENTS. that will inform and connect the Centre’s various activities for the next three years.

Climate change has become an urgent issue for its impact on urban environments and other habitats. The Centre intends to gain a deeper understanding of these precarious realities through projects across disciplines, bringing together artists, scientists, and practitioners from diverse fields of knowledge.

The works in The Oceanic refer to the long cultural history of the Pacific and its Archipelagos and the impact of recent human activities at sea. The artistic investigations emerging from TBA21–Academy The Current’s first cycle (2015–17)—with expeditions to Papua New Guinea, French Polynesia, and Fiji—address the environmental, cultural, and social transformations that have taken place on less accessible littorals and island groups.
