11th Edition of ACAW (2016)


In its 11th edition, Asia Contemporary Art Week (ACAW) expands beyond its usual format to captivate the momentous energy of the field through a season-long platform of cutting-edge exhibitions, innovative projects and provocative dialogues at leading museums and galleries citywide, Fall 2016 (Sep 12 – Nov 18), culminating in ACAW signature program FIELD MEETING and other special events.  


FIELD MEETING Take 4: Thinking Practice is an exhibition in the form of a two-day forum hosted at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum & Asia Society Museum (November 11th & 12th) – staging newly conceived performances, lecture performances, and lively discussion by over 30 key artists and figures based in Asia & beyond. Thinking Practice is dedicated to examining ongoing research-based practices, methodologies, and artistic processes spanning multiple mediums and disciplines to explore aesthetics, activism, ethics, history, the sciences, and individual & collective experience.
