Call for applications – 2016 Open Platform programme, Asia Art Archive, Hong Kong

Cultural practitioners from all disciplines are invited to submit proposals for Asia Art Archive’s fourth annual Open Platform programme. Held in association with Art Basel in Hong Kong, the programme is an integral part of AAA’s endeavour to enable new thinking and critical dialogue around recent art in Asia.

A series of « meetings without walls » will be hosted at AAA’s discursive live events platform at a larger ABHK booth location from March 24–26, 2016. The programme enables researchers, curators, writers, artists, students, academics, and art organisations to leverage AAA’s network in order to further ongoing projects, catalyse new ones, or simply make connections.

Applicants may wish to reach out to individuals through AAA with the option of including AAA team members by request. AAA will provide assistance to help fuel the discussions. Meetings will not be recorded.

Discussion topics should reference AAA’s research and programme interests with some flexibility. The Archive also welcomes contributions through an open call for material to enrich the AAA collection, a free and publicly accessible physical and digital resource aiding the study of recent art in Asia.

Key topics
archive, art and architecture, art and literature, art education, artist books, art writing, collaboration, commons, curatorial studies, digital documentation, exhibition histories, geographies, independent art spaces, keywords, oral history, patronage, pedagogy, performance art, periodicals, photography, politics, protest, public art, publics, sound art, vernacular.

Application deadline: January 8, 2016
