2018 NYU Global Asia/Pacific Art Exchange and Working Sessions

GAX 2018 in London and Berlin
June 13 – 23, 2018

GAX 2018 takes place in London and Berlin with a series of research sharing sessions entitled “‘Here’…‘There’ / East & Southeast Asian Diasporic Art” at Central Saint Martins, University of London; a two-day working session and public panel presented in collaboration with the Haus der Kulturen der Welt (HKW Berlin), ICI Berlin, Centre for Transcultural Analysis at Carleton University (CTCA), and Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU on the topic of “Dismantling Neo-Empire: Asia/Pacific,” engaging on the long histories and legacies of old and new asymmetric power functions in relationship to collections, collecting, and art historical presentation and narrative; and “Co-Constituting the Global,” investigating co-worlding and exploring notions of transnational and transcultural art theory and practice.

GAX is collaborating with SOMA Art Space Berlin to present Intimacies and Imagined Futures, an exhibition featuring the work of nine international and Berlin-based Asian diasporic artists working in performance and video. GAX will also explore the topic of diversity in the arts today with an intimate public conversation on Performance, Diversity, and Representation.

GAX 2018 participants can download schedules for the Friday, June 15 working session, “‘Here’…‘There’ / East & Southeast Asian Diasporic Art,” here. The Berlin schedule is forthcoming. Open to-the-public sessions in both cities are listed below.
