Presented as part of Asian Contemporary Art Week’s critical Dialogues in Contemporary Art series, and as a prelude to its ninth installment scheduled for fall, “Urgency and Relevance: A Curatorial Perspective” provides an insider’s view of contemporary art through the eyes of international practitioners working at the edge of advocacy and establishment. While representing current priorities in a landscape of new global initiatives, each curator will give voice to diverse practices within various museum models. As told through personal stories of discovery and illustrated by specific case studies, such dynamics as the formation of collections, engagement with living artists, representation of multiple communities, economics of cultural capital, and press of civic life are brought to light through curatorial work.
