for a three-month fellowship to work on an ongoing project and explore the contemporary art scene in New York City
Conceived as an exhibition and aimed at emulating the experience of a studio visit on a communal scale, FIELD MEETING Take 5: Thinking Projects is once again meticulously curated to explore art as a journey of ideas through timely staging of extraordinary people, their creative process and research. Creating a performative and experimental realm, the program commissions over 25 of today’s outstanding creative personalities from Asia and beyond to embody their work through newly conceived performances, lecture-performances, and lively discussions in the presence of an exclusive audience of New York- & US-based curators, scholars, and museum directors.
Curated by ACAW Director Leeza Ahmady, with performances and lecture-performances by:
Nancy Adajania (Bombay), Meitha Al Mazrooei (Dubai), Marwa Arsanios (Beirut), Nadiah Bamadhaj (Jogjakarta), Laura Barlow (Doha), Hera Chan (Hong Kong & Montreal), Yin-Ju Chen (Taipei), Tiffany Chung (Ho Chi Minh City), Dai Guangyu (Beijing), Simon Fujiwara (Berlin), Joyce Ho (Taipei), Hu Weiyi (Shanghai), Taus Makhacheva (Makhachkala & Moscow), Kingsley Ng (Hong Kong), Suhanya Raffel (Hong Kong), Marat Raiymkulov (Bishkek), Yuliya Sorokina (Almaty), Abdullah M.I.
