Welcome to


A Warehouse Turned Curators Academy

72-13 is the home of The Curators Academy and T:>Works. Formerly a rice warehouse, the space is currently a gallery, a cinema, and a theatre. It is an R&D Centre, a performance centre, a forum, and a platform for international creative expression and its relationship to Asia, in particular South-East Asia.

In particular, the Curators Academy is concerned with the curation of performance but intends to move beyond the skills of programming. It is the Academy’s belief that the programmers buy, the artists make, and curators nurture porous contexts, conversations, continuities through interrogating archives and legacies, as well as bridging potentialities. 


The Academy’s emphasis is on researching a local context by reflecting on other local contexts, developing an approach of multiple locals as a new dimension for future internationalization. The comparative reflections allows for nurturing performances which re-engages with the politics of a site, through case-studies of other local contexts which can develop parallel insights and different inspirations.


T:>Works’ mission and vision is the pioneering of thought leadership in the arts focused on transdisciplinary, transcultural, and inclusive processes.
To this end, there is a strong educational perspective with research and discourse contextualising histories, contemporary experiences, and situated art practices of the global south.

T:>Works also serves to investigate the current urgencies of being located in Singapore through different creative expressions in the public sphere. It is a recipient of the National Arts Council Major Company Grant from 1st April 2022 to 31st March 2025. T:>Works is an Institute of Public Character with charity status.
