2015 GAX Symposium: GLOBAL ASIAS | ART

Global Art and Diasporic Art in Japan and Asia

Friday, June 26Saturday, June 27

Symposium jointly organized by Mori Art Museum, Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU, and Integrated Human Sciences Program for Cultural Diversity (IHS), The University of Tokyo as part of the 2015 Global Asia/Pacific Art Exchange initiative (GAX)

This symposium is set in the background of an ongoing investigation under the rubric of Global Asias Art and Visual Cultures, which includes reflections on changing connotations of Asia, the modern and the global with its sets of networked economies and circuits of artistic production and visual flows. The symposium will continue with an evolving awareness of transcultural and transnational mobilities in relation to artistic production, but with a view toward internationalisms and the possibility of new internationalisms—a reexamining of the global, in part through a look at the reinscription of the national and international in the global context, which may also be taken as a push toward local specificities in relation to the global. This is also producing developing practices of global responsibility, including socially engaged and environmentally conscious forms of art practice that point to a planetary ethics of the visual. Thus, participants will cover topics from the national to the global and the planetary, from a history of Asian American and other diasporic Asian art to current global tendencies. Global Asias | Art will engage scholars, arts professionals and artists with a critical look at the field in response to the concept of Global Asias including the conceptual intentionality, possibility and limits of these frameworks.

DAY 2, Saturday, June 27, 2015: IMAGINING ASIAN ART IN GLOBAL ASIAS

The University of Tokyo Komaba Campus, Auditorium, Administration Office Bldg (3F)

This symposium, organized by the University of Tokyo’s Integrated Human Sciences for Cultural Diversity Program, aims to interrogate the notion of Global Asias and the contemporary situation of Asian art in and beyond geographical Asia.

The idea of Global Asias, which refers to the global dislocation, relocation, and transformation of goods, ideas, and people originating in Asia, calls attention to transnational conflict and negotiation at multiple intersecting levels. It is concerned with relationships not only between indigenous cultures inside Asia, but also between Asian-derived cultures outside of Asia. Global Asias looks, for example, not only at the relationship between Japan and the United States or Japan and Brazil, but also the relationship between Japanese-American and Japanese-Brazilian.

The symposium proposes to focus specifically on contemporary art practices in relationship to the global diffusion and transformation of Asian art and culture. We would like to explore how local art history in Asian countries is reconfigured by, and also reconfigures, the globalization of Asian art and its discourses. We are also interested in examining how art practices within a given country relate to art practices by those who are from that country but live and work elsewhere.

In addition, we would like to consider how the idea of Global Asias, which represents a plural and transnational concept of Asian culture, figures in the processes of globalization that in some way exercise hegemonic effects on local and indigenous art practices. The symposium will also consider global framings in relation to the concept of Global Asias which may include a call back to the international or may examine practices that call upon the global in terms of the planetary.

Po Kim — A Memorial Tribute —Exhibition “The Legacy of Po Kim” —opening Sept 3, 2014

http://www.koreasociety.org/arts-culture/exhibition/po_kim_a_memorial_tribute.html

Po Kim’s artistic career was characterized by an ever-evolving style, and an eagerness to seek out new areas of inspiration. His paintings, often large in scale, were bold and compelling, bursting with life, energy, and emotion. This work distinguished Kim as one of the premier Korean-American artists of his time. When the artist died earlier this year, he left behind a strong legacy in his paintings, the innumerable artists he inspired, and the gallery in New York and museum in Korea which bear his name.

Po’s life as an artist began in Korea, where he founded the Department of Fine Arts at Chosun University. Incarcerated and tortured during the Korean War, Kim left Korea in 1955 to accept a fellowship at the University of Illinois. He moved to New York City a few years later, and his artistic life flourished here over the next six decades.

This exhibition, through personal objects, photographs, catalogues, and paintings, seeks to provide viewers a deeper sense of an artist who found great inspiration in his identities as a Korean, an American, and a New Yorker. The objects are on loan from The Sylvia Wald and Po Kim Art Gallery, an institution dedicated to the art of its founders and their personal mission of intercultural dialogue between the artistic communities of New York and the world.

August 28—September 26, 2014

OPENING RECEPTION | Gallery Talk

The Legacy of Po Kim

Wednesday, September 3, 2014 | 6 PM

Po Kim was a pioneering force in the Korean American art community.

The panelists will discuss Mr. Kim’s life; the hardships and turmoil he endured, his long illustrious career as artist and teacher, his evolving style, his influences, and his contributions and impact on the art world.

NYU Global Asia/Pacific Art Exchange — July 8-22, 2013 — Shanghai | Hong Kong | Canberra | Wollongong | Sydney

NYU Global Asia/Pacific Art Exchange

The Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU is launching the first phase of the inter-institutional Global Asia/Pacific Art Exchange from July 8-22, 2013 in Shanghai, China; Hong Kong; and Wollongong, Sydney, and Canberra, Australia, focusing on Asian/Asian diasporic art globally.

The exchange will bring together scholars, curators, and artists from each site and is meant to be generative for research, resulting in publications, exhibition development, and other research-based projects and programs to share and disseminate research, strengthen international networks of scholars and curators, and create ongoing dialogue between international colleagues, arts communities, and wider publics in the US, Asia/Pacific region, EU, Latin America, Africa, and Middle East in the expanding field of Asian/Asian Diasporic Art and Visual Cultures.

Through international site visits, symposia, public dialogues, and ongoing working sessions, the exchange aims to build sustained multi-year inter-institutional and scholarly connections to encourage a broader transnational and comparative diasporic discourse while recognizing the continual importance of local contextualization and place.

2013 NYU Global Asia/Pacific Art Exchange Public Programming

In 2014, the exchange will travel to Washington, DC and New York City. Future phases of the exchange are planned for Australia, Indonesia, Delhi, London, Argentina, and Ghana.

The NYU Global Asia/Pacific Art Exchange is made possible with the support of A/P/A Institute at NYU; NYU’s Global Research Initiative; NYU in Shanghai; NYU in Sydney; Fine Arts Department, The Chinese University in Hong Kong; MA Program in Cultural Management, Department of Cultural and Religious Studies, The Chinese University of Hong Kong; Australian National University’s Centre for European Studies and Australian Research Council’s Discovery Projects funding scheme (DP 0880038); Wollongong City Gallery; and generous collaborators including Shanghai Studies Society, James Cohan Gallery, Leo Xu Projects, Aike Dellarco, and MABSOCIETY.
