ACAW 2017 Signature Program

An annual signature program of Asia Contemporary Art Week, FIELD MEETING Take 5: Thinking Projects is a two-day exclusive forum for arts professionals dedicated to newly conceived performances, lecture-performances, and lively discussions by over 25 compelling figures, hosted at the Asia Society Museum & SVA Theatre, New York on October 14 & 15.
Emulating a studio visit experience on a communal scale, FIELD MEETING: Thinking Projects yielded an experimental and performative realm for creative individuals to embody their work through their own presence to an audience of New York & US-based curators, scholars, and museum directors. The program transcends conventional educational symposia to stage a showcasing of people, their ideas, research, and significant activities, whereby new materials, concepts and projects are tested and reflected upon collectively.
