Asia Forum – Launch in Venice

Asia Forum is pleased to invite you to its in-person launch on Saturday 23 April 2022 in Venice, Italy.

The Asia Forum for the Contemporary Art of Global Asias is a new itinerant platform envisioned for discourse surrounding experimental art practices and research that produce hopeful new worlds beyond the North Atlantic. The Asia Forum in 2021/22 is proudly presented by the Bagri Foundation as digital gatherings in 2021, and an inaugural in-person, one-day programme at the historic Fondazione Querini Stampalia in Venice, on 23 April 2022.

The still-unfolding events of the past year have resulted in a fundamental reconfiguring of timelines and work practices. These changes provide an opportunity to imagine with artists, curators, researchers, and activists, new contemporary practices and engage a public eager for discourse on urgent issues of climate, democracy, anti-racism, and creative agency for addressing global anxieties through the lens and engine of ‘Asia/s’.

Through its peripatetic digital and live manifestations the Asia Forum aims at nurturing a community among diverse artists, curators, thinkers, producers and audiences interested and invested in the arts of global Asias.

Conceived by Annie Jael Kwan, the Asia Forum works with a council of international curators and researchers, Hammad Nasar, John Tain, and Ming Tiampo, in a sustained dialogue with contributors to navigate the key themes that have arisen in relation to contemporary artistic practices of Global Asias.

The event will be also live-streamed via the Asia Forum’s exclusive media partner ArtReviewRead more about Asia Forum here.
