It Begins with a Story: A Symposium on Periodicals in Asia

Free and open to the public. Register Now!

Organised by Asia Art Archive in collaboration with The University of Hong Kong, the symposium explores how periodicals have fostered conversations around art and emergent forms of visuality in twentieth-century Asia.

Periodicals have been more than just platforms or sites for artistic experimentation and exhibition; they have themselves shaped and staged them. In so doing, periodicals have played a defining role in forming diverse publics for art in Asia.

Keynote speakers are Charles Esche, Director of Van Abbemuseum, and Li Xianting, Beijing-based Independent Critic and Curator.

Panelists include Phoebe Scott, Curator, National Gallery Singapore; Mervin Espina, Program Director, Green Papaya Art Projects, Manila; Chiang Poshin, Associate Professor, Department of Art History, Tainan National University of the Arts; Insoo Cho, Professor, Art Theory Department, School of Visual Arts, Korea National University of Arts, and more.

Date: 11-13 Jan 2018
