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 500 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.
