Presented by the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa Department of Art and Art History and Art Gallery and Museum Studies Graduate Certificate Program in collaboration with the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU as an initiative of the 2015 Global Asia/Pacific Art Exchange (GAX)
The colloquium will be discussing Transpacific circulations of art and practice, drawing on presentations by artists engaging in transpacific and transnational diasporic practice, curators involved in framings of the Asia/Pacific within the global and scholars involved in research and discourse building within the field. The colloquium is free and open to the public and hopes to create discussion on existing nodes of art historical discourse and how Transpacific framings allow for possible expanded ways of exploring work and practice.
