A Prelude to Asian Contemporary Art Week’s ninth edition coming this fall 2014!

Presented as part of Asian Contemporary Art Week’s critical “Dialogues in Contemporary Art” series, select curators give voice to diverse identities within a landscape of new global initiatives. As told through individual stories of discovery and illustrated by specific case studies, such dynamics as the formation of collections, an engagement with living artists, the representation of multiple communities, the economics of cultural capital and the press of civic life are brought to light across curatorial practice. This program presents an insider’s view of contemporary art through the eyes of practitioners at the edge of advocacy and establishment.

Alexandra Munroe, Samsung Senior Curator of Asian Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, introduces the program and moderates a group conversation.

Presenters include:
 Leeza Ahmady, independent curator and Director of Asian Contemporary Art Week
 // Thomas Berghuis, The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Curator of Chinese Art, Guggenheim Museum
 // Melissa Chiu, Director, Asia Society Museum and Vice President, Global Arts Programming, Asia Society /
/ Pablo León de la Barra, Guggenheim UBS MAP Curator, Latin America // 
Reem Fadda, Associate Curator, Middle Eastern Art, Abu Dhabi Project, Guggenheim Museum
