TALKS X ASIA SOCIETY: The Curator and the Cultivator: Asian Art for a Global Audience

Saturday, 26 March 2016 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

This high calibre panel discussion will follow the path of Asian Art on a global scale and provide an insight into what curators of Asian art need to consider when organizing exhibitions and forming collections for audiences outside of Asia. With divergent visions from curators with differing backgrounds in life, education, and experience, we will interpret the ways in which a seemingly uniform body of art can transcend a single idea and be redefined so that the collections provide a relevance to their international audiences.
