Conversation: Narrating and Digitalising Asian Art Histories with Chu’o’ng-Đài Võ

Description

14 Oct 2018, Sun 03:00 PM - 05:00 PM
Independent Archive, 71 Aliwal Street

This talk will discuss the importance of archival collections for the writing of art histories in Asia. Chương-Đài Võ will begin with an overview of Asia Art Archive’s (AAA) online collections, in particular, those related to Southeast Asia. The second half of the talk will focus on the Lee Wen Archive, an ongoing project that AAA started in 2017 in collaboration with NTU Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore.

The Lee Wen Archive covers the span of his practice as an artist, organiser, and writer, starting in the early 1980s: his solo and collaborative projects, his notebooks and sketchbooks, his formative period with The Artists Village, his writings and correspondences, and his extensive documentation of art collectives and festivals in Asia and Europe. Among this latter batch of material are photographs and video documentation of artists who participated in ground-breaking festivals such as Artists’ General Assembly, Nippon International Performance Art Festival, and Asiatopia.

A public programme of Journey of a Yellow Man. Selected Materials from the Independent Archive.
