Sydney's influential 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art is hosting a panel discussion exploring the role of independent grassroots spaces and projects in the Asia Pacific contemporary art ecosystem.
Moderated by Kelly Doley the panel will examine the changing role of independent grassroots spaces and projects in the region working together to support experimentation, political and critical practices and forge responsive conversations that larger institutions may not be able to provide.
International participants in the panel include Anna Eschbach and Antonie Angerer who will discuss the complexities and successes of leading one of Beijing’s first independent spaces, alongside 4A’s Director Mikala Tai and Jeff Khan, Artistic Director of Sydney's dynamic Performance Space. Together the panel will examine a series of questions of investigating ideas for cross platform partnerships, transnational programming, methodologies for supporting experimental artistic practice and ideas of feminist performance practice.
