ACAW FIELD MEETING Take 5: THINKING PROJECTS

When 14 Oct 2017 - 15 Oct 2017
Where Asia Society Museum & SVA Theatre

An annual signature program of Asia Contemporary Art Week, FIELD MEETING Take 5: Thinking Projects is a two-day exclusive forum for arts professionals dedicated to newly conceived performances, lecture-performances, and lively discussions by over 25 compelling figures, hosted at the Asia Society Museum & SVA Theatre, New York on October 14 & 15.

Emulating a studio visit experience on a communal scale, FIELD MEETING: Thinking Projects yielded an experimental and performative realm for creative individuals to embody their work through their own presence to an audience of New York & US-based curators, scholars, and museum directors. The program transcends conventional educational symposia to stage a showcasing of people, their ideas, research, and significant activities, whereby new materials, concepts and projects are tested and reflected upon collectively.

Space is limited and RSVP is required. Registration is open with reasonably priced ticketing for students, artists & arts professionals, and general attendees.

Curated by ACAW Director Leeza Ahmady, with performances and lecture-performances by:
Nancy Adajania (Bombay) / Meitha Al Mazrooei (Dubai & New York) / Marwa Arsanios (Beirut) / Nadiah Bamadhaj (Jogjiakarta) / Laura Barlow (Doha) / Hera Chan (Hong Kong) / Yin-Ju Chen (Taipei) / Tiffany Chung (Ho Chi Minh City) / Dai Guangyu (Beijing) / Simon Fujiwara (Berlin) / Joyce Ho (Taipei) / Hu Weiyi (Shanghai) / Taus Makhacheva (Makhachkala & Moscow) / Kingsley Ng (Hong Kong) / Bruce Quek (Singapore) / Suhanya Raffel (Hong Kong) / Marat Raiymkulov (Bishkek) / Abdullah M.I.
