A webinar series organized by the University of Chicago’s Smart Museum of Art for the UChicago Centers in Beijing and Delhi and Yuen Campus in Hong Kong.
How does contemporary art intersect with South, Southeast, and East Asia? How is it defined and contested across these regions? How do new geographic formations and constellations—global to region to state—provide alternative methodologies for studying contemporary art? “Cross Currents: Contemporary Art from New Delhi to Beijing” brings together scholars and artists throughout Asia to discuss pressing contemporary issues. The first webinar session assembles curators from East, Southeast, and South Asia to deliberate on how the art scenes from each region inform new understandings of the global and the contemporary in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and our post-COVID futures.
The Smart Museum’s Global Asia Initiative builds upon the Museum’s history as a leader in theorizing and presenting Contemporary Chinese Art in the United States over the last two decades, particularly the pioneering work of Professor and Curator, Wu Hung. Expanding from this foundation, Global Asia seeks to position Asian contemporary art within the complex networks, entanglements, and mobilities that structure the universality of our world.
