CPA Season 2: Open Institution 亚洲策展实践第二辑:“打开机构”

1 January 2019 – 1 September 2020
2019年 1月 1日 – 2020年 9月 1日

From 2019 to 2020, CPA introduced a two-year research project “ Institution Building ” encompassing short-term residencies, workshops, and lecture series. It is directed towards the shifting role of institutions throughout Asia. As institutional construction rapidly grows, CPA research platform is dedicated to reshaping institutional imagination to better confront the emerging challenges and engage in dialogues with innovative systems within the region.

As a non-profit organization, RAM has reflected on various possibilities in institutional establishment and the meanings inherent in these possibilities, informed by its own course of evolution. The research topic Institution Building is deliberately chosen after such introspection. We emphasize that institutions should no longer be viewed as physical spaces solely for fast-paced exhibition production, but rather as intermediate zones offering increasing creativity and possibilities. Balancing production and the pursuit of creation, challenge, and innovation, our aim is to discover, understand, and rethink alternative methods of institution-building and practical experience within different contexts across Asia. Through CPA, we invite institutional and independent curators, researchers, and artists from both domestic and international backgrounds to exchange opinions, share case studies, refer to each other, and engage in stimulating discussions on topics such as art intervention in society, alternative education, art history construction, and trans-regional cultural study.
