I’ve been invited to present at this year’s Asian Art Research Now postgraduate workshop this Friday. This year’s edition is convened by the Australasian Network for Asian Art (an4aa) and gathers postgraduates from University of Melbourne and Australian National University.
According to an4aa
Asian Art Research Now is the inaugural event of the Australasian Network for Asian Art (an4aa), a collegial group of Australian and New Zealand researchers who have come together to strengthen a sense of scholarly community in this field. In keeping with an4aa’s objective to highlight the vitality and immediacy of Asian art research being undertaken by emerging scholars, Asian Art Research Now showcases the work of recent PhD graduates and current PhD students from the Australian National University and University of Melbourne. As a continuing annual event organised by an4aa, future editions of the workshop will be expanded to feature the work of emerging scholars from other locations. The day-long workshop will foster an atmosphere of supportive critique and generate greater cross-pollination and conversations across institutional boundaries, as well as those of geography and temporality within the field of Asian art history.
My presentation is titled “Archival Art as Network Stream” and is a speculative attempt to make sense of the different ways Singaporean artists use the phrase “archival art.”
