It Begins with a Story: A Symposium on Periodicals in Asia

11 January - 13 January

Explore the role of periodicals at the It Begins With A Story symposium

Organised by Asia Art Archive in collaboration with The University of Hong Kong (HKU), the It Begins With A Story symposium explores how periodicals have fostered conversations around art and emergent forms of visuality in twentieth-century Asia. Periodicals have been more than just platforms or sites for artistic experimentation and exhibition; they have themselves shaped and staged them. In so doing, periodicals have played a defining role in forming diverse publics for art in Asia. Keynote speakers are Charles Esche, Director of Van Abbemuseum, and Li Xianting, Beijing-based Independent Critic and Curator. Panelists include Phoebe Scott, Curator, National Gallery Singapore; Mervin Espina, Program Director, Green Papaya Art Projects, Manila; Chiang Poshin, Associate Professor, Department of Art History, Tainan National University of the Arts; Insoo Cho, Professor, Art Theory Department, School of Visual Arts, Korea National University of Arts, and more. Find the full agenda at aaa.org.hk
