Opening Wednesday, February 17th, from 6:30AM - 8AM
A panel discussion organized by the Smart Museum of Art for the University of Chicago’s Centers in Beijing and New Delhi and Yuen Campus in Hong Kong.
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.
