CTCA co-founder Ming Tiampo, research associate Alice Ming Wai Jim (Concordia University), and members Birgit Hopfener, Rebecca Dolgoy, and Victoria Nolte are participating in the annual meeting of the Global Asia/Pacific Art Exchange (GAX), an inter-institutional project organized by the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at New York University. This year’s exchange takes place June 13-23 in London and Berlin.

GAX enters its fifth year with a series of research sharing sessions titled “‘Here’…‘There’ / East & Southeast Asian Diasporic Art” at Central Saint Martins, University of London and a two-day working session and public panel presented in collaboration with the Haus der Kulturen der Welt (HKW Berlin), ICI Berlin, Centre for Transcultural Analysis at Carleton University (CTCA), and Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU on the topic of “Dismantling Neo-Empire: Asia/Pacific,” engaging on the long histories and legacies of old and new asymmetric power functions in relationship to collections, collecting, and art historical presentation and narrative; and “Co-Constituting the Global,” investigating co-worlding and exploring notions of transnational and transcultural art theory and practice.

GAX is also collaborating with SOMA Art Space Berlin for an exhibition titled Intimacies and Imagined Futures, featuring the work of nine international and Berlin-based Asian diasporic artists working in performance and video. GAX will also explore the topic of diversity in the arts today with an intimate public conversation on Performance, Diversity, and Representation.

Information for public sessions is available on the GAX 2018 webpage.

GAX 2018 is supported by the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU; NYU Global Research Initiatives, Office of the Provost; NYU in London; NYU in Berlin; Haus Der Kulturen Der Welt (HKW); ICI Berlin; the Centre for Transcultural Analysis at Carleton University (CTCA); SOMA Art Space; and Arts Council Korea (ARKO).
