Cross Currents: Contemporary Art from New Delhi to Beijing

Wednesday, February 17, 6:30 am CST

How does contemporary art intersect with South, Southeast, and East Asia? How is it defined and contested across these regions? How do new geographic formations and constellations—global to region to state—provide alternative methodologies for studying contemporary art? Cross Currents: Contemporary Art from New Delhi to Beijing brings together curators working throughout Asia to discuss how the art scenes from each region inform new understandings of the global, the local and the contemporary in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and our post-COVID futures.  

Featuring Carol Yinghua Lu, Director, Inside-Out Museum, Beijing; Adele Tan, Senior Curator, National Gallery, Singapore; and Veeranganakumari Solanki, Independent curator and writer, Mumbai; and moderated by Orianna Cacchione, Curator of Global Contemporary Art, Smart Museum of Art, The University of Chicago.
