Launch: Afterall Journal Issue 46

Description

13 Oct 2018, Sat 02:00 PM - 05:00 PM The Single Screen, Block 43 Malan Road

NTU Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore is hosting the launch of the Afterall journal issue 46, Autumn/Winter 2018 as well as the latest publication in the Afterall Exhibition Histories series, Artist-to-Artist: Independent Art Festivals in Chiang Mai 1992–98 with the presence of the editors on Saturday, 13 October 2018.

As part of the three-year research and publishing partnership between the Nanyang Technological University and the University of the Arts London started in 2017, issue 46 was conceived in Singapore in a collective effort by the editorial team (Ute Meta Bauer, Ana Bilbao, Charles Esche, Anders Kreuger, David Morris, Anca Rujoiu, and Charles Stankievech). This issue traverses different geographies and contexts, from Southeast Asia to the Americas with a focus on artistic practices that take a clear position against the long-lasting endurance of oppressive systems, be it racial, patriarchal or colonial. The performative body of work of Singaporean artist Lee Wen and his explorations on identity and representation are unpacked in two essays by Alice Ming Wai Jim, Professor and Concordia University Research Chair in Ethnocultural Art Histories, Canada, and Võ H`ông Chu’o’ng-Đài, Researcher at Asia Art Archive, Hong Kong. Yin Ker, Assistant Professor at the School of Art, Design and Media at Nanyang Technical University, Singapore, discusses the internal complexities of the Burmese contemporary art scene in one of this issue’s contextual essays.

The discussion on issue 46 will be preceded by a presentation of Afterall’s history by its Co-founder, Charles Esche, Director of Van Abbemuseum, The Netherlands. Celebrating 20 years of activity this year, Afterall journal is widely acknowledged for its in-depth analysis of artistic practices, contextual essays, engagement with exhibition histories and curatorial practices within various geographical constituencies.
