010_05 / 28 October 2016

Asia Contemporary Art Week's annual signature forum, FIELD MEETING Take 4: Thinking Practice is hosted at Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Asia Society on November 11 and 12, 2016. With more than 30 artists and arts professionals based in the U.S, Asia, and beyond staging newly-conceived performances and lecture-performances, and generating lively discussions for an audience of 300 U.S.-based curators, scholars, and museum professionals, this two-day art forum emulates the experience of a studio visit on a larger, communal scale.

Providing an experimental and performative realm for creative individuals to embody their work through their own presence, FIELD MEETING transcends conventional educational symposia to showcase people and their ideas, research, and significant activities, whereby new materials, concepts, and projects are tested and considered collectively. The program facilitates meaningful exchanges while sparking lasting relationships between U.S.- and Asia-based artists, arts professionals, and organizations for future collaborations.


Curated by ACAW Director, Leeza Ahmady.
