Presented as part of Asian Contemporary Art Week’s critical Dialogues in Contemporary Art series, and as a prelude to its 9th edition in fall 2014, select curators give voice to diverse identities within a landscape of new global initiatives. Told through individual stories of discovery and illustrated by specific case studies, the program presents an insider’s view of contemporary art through the eyes of practitioners at the edge of advocacy and establishment.
Moderated by Alexandra Munroe, Samsung Senior Curator of Asian Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Speakers Include: Leeza Ahmady, Independent curator and Director of Asian Contemporary Art Week; Thomas Berghuis, The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Curator of Chinese Art, Guggenheim Museum; Melissa Chiu, Director, Asia Society Museum, and Vice President, Global Arts Programming, Asia Society; Pablo León de la Barra, Guggenheim UBS MAP Curator, Latin America, and Reem Fadda, Associate Curator, Middle Eastern Art, Guggenheim Abu Dhabi Project.
