CLOSING THE DISTANCE | FORUM | CONTEMPORARY ART IN THE AGE OF GLOBILISATION
March 18, 2017 - March 18, 2017Join distinguished guests for a discussion of contemporary art in the age of globalisation within an Asian context. Guest speakers include Dr Kristen Sharp – Senior lecturer in Art History and Theory at RMIT University, Rachel Marsden – Lecturer in Art Curatorship from The University of Melbourne, Artist and Independent Curator Nikki Lam and painter Kevin Chin.
How has globalisation affected cultural discourse? Do artists have a responsibility to celebrate and reveal their cultural heritage? Is the market dictating political commentary? This timely forum will follow the artists’ and curator’s talks at 2pm. Eugenia Lim will also be presenting her new performance Invisible Cities all afternoon so spend the day soaking up the amazing works in Closing the Distance and hear and learn about the context framing the exhibition.
