The 2015 GAX (Global Asia/Pacific Art Exchange) programs in Honolulu and Tokyo will continue with the ongoing dialogues discussion topics of Global Asias and art and visual cultures developed throughout the first two phases of the exchange — among these thematics includes a focus on the discourse of Transpacific, Hemispheric, and Comparative Diasporic framings. Techniques of diasporic artistic production and issues that permeate artistic production including land use issues, art activism, and climate will also be explored with artists engaged with work negotiating within the space of the planetary.

The goals of the exchange remain to build a sustained network of scholars deeply engaged in Global Asias and Asian diasporic art and visual cultures to be generative of collaboration, exhibition, publication, research and other projects to build the richly expanding field.
