ACAW 2015 SIGNATURE PROGRAM

FIELD MEETING Take 3:
Thinking Performance

October 31 – November 2, 2015
Hosted at The Metropolitan Museum of Art,
Hunter College Art Galleries, and Performa Hub

Curated by ACAW Director Leeza Ahmady
 
In connection with ACAW 2015’s signature exhibition Sonic Blossom by Lee Mingwei, FIELD MEETING Take 3: Thinking Performance staged performances, talks and discussions with over 30 keynote figures to foreground the multiplicity and critical role of performance work coming out of the context of Asia. Providing an open platform for direct interaction between artists and an exclusive audience of arts professionals, FIELD MEETING focused on creative process, conceptual exchange and collaboration to advance artistic endeavors. More importantly in the realm of this expanding field, Thinking Performance invited
broader, more nuanced interpretations of performance work and
fresh understandings of performativity in artistic production at large.
