ENCATC_Annual_Conference_September_2014

The Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) through its programme ASEF Creative Networks is supporting the 22nd ENCATC Annual Conference “New Challenges for the Arts and Culture: Is it just about money?” in Brno, Czech Republic from 17-19 September 2014. This major international event will bring together academics, researchers, cultural managers, policy makers, students, and artists to discuss and explore new challenges facing the arts. The themes of the conference will focus on the social, aesthetic and economic aspects of arts management in the public and private sectors and question “Is it all just about money?” This conference is meant to advance reflection and inspire innovative thinking about all aspects of the arts that impact our society and particularly the social, aesthetic and economic ones.

The Annual Conference is one of a series of events that ENCATC in partnership with the Asia Pacific Network for Education and Research (ANCER) and The Hong Kong Institute of Education is organising in 2014 as part of the project Network as Learning Experience, supported by the ASEF Creative Networks programme (1st edition).

During three plenary sessions, keynote speakers will share their expertise and reveal three interesting perspectives from Europe, North America and Asia on the challenges for the arts and culture.  David Mareček, Executive Director of the Czech Philharmonic in Prague; Alan Salzenstein, President, Association of Arts Administration and Professor, DePaul University in Chicago, USA; and Jerry C Y Liu, Associate Professor, Graduate School of Arts Management and Cultural Policy at the National Taiwan University of Arts.

The expertise, innovative cases and new perspectives brought by the conference’s keynote speakers will be followed by moderated panel discussions and questions from the audience. These plenary sessions will be just several of the many opportunities to learn about the latest trends and developments in the field of cultural management and policy, exchange best practice, internationalise careers and enlarge professional networks.

Ms Anupama Sekhar, Acting Director of ASEF Culture Department, will present ASEF culture360 in the open session: Transfer of Knowledge, Information and Methodology on 19 September and the WorldCP-International Database of Cultural Policies project in the research session. She will also participate in the Seminar N°1: Training at the urban cultural project level: Training needs and future perspectives

The conference’s 3-day programme also includes the 5th Annual ENCATC Research Session, the 7th Annual ENCATC Thematic Area cultural seminars, study visits to flagship cultural institutions in Brno, the 11th Cultural Policy Research Award Ceremony, and an Open Space for knowledge-transfer on information and methodology.

megaphone project

Children and teenagers are the focus of this year’s ANTI Contemporary Art Festival in Kuopio, Finland (23-28 September), which presents site- and time-specific works made for public space. An international seminar takes place 26 September on the theme.

The international festival programme consists of work where the youngest family members or youngsters nearing adulthood are either the theme or an active part of the production. Children and young people as a theme of a Finnish contemporary arts festival is a unique phenomenon as the performances here are not targeted at an audience of children.

The most visible and unquestionably the most audible event will be the Megaphone Project by Madeleine Flynn and Tim Humphrey (AU). The performance has been hugely popular in Australia and it consists of 25 bright red megaphones that invite people to join in to create a shared sound field. The project will also travel to Iisalmi during the festival week. Another Australian visitor is The Walking Neighbourhood, a work based on Lenine Bourke‘s idea, where children and teenagers work with the artists for two weeks to create walking tours based on their own interests in Kuopio. These thematic tours are available during the festival weekend.

anti-festival

How would you react if you walked into a barber’s or hair salon and were greeted by a bunch of kids with scissors in their hands? A group of children do a week-long course in hair-cutting for Haircuts by Children, a performance by the Canadian company Mammalian Diving Reflex. For three days a team of 4th grade pupils take over the Style in Room hair salon, ready to make their customers’ wishes come true. Another fruit of intensive work is Assembly by Nicola Conibere (UK). It will be created in collaboration with students from upper secondary school and will examine the ways that bodies relate to each other during the performance. Assembly lasts for several hours and is a varied performance that changes as the viewers change.

Two workshop performances deal with the city of Kuopio as a place to live. A Girls’ Town is a textual workshop arranged by artist Suvi Nurmi (FI). It mixes playfulness with anarchy by allowing girls to redefine law and disorder and rewrite the city’s bylaws. The new bylaws will be exhibited at the Kuopio Market Square between 25 and 28 September.

International seminar

Children operating in the field of contemporary art – subjects or objects? An international seminar will be held at the Kuopio Academy of Design Auditorium, Piispankatu 8, Kuopio, on Friday, 26 September 2014, between 1 pm and 6 pm. Register for the seminar by 14 September!

The winner of the new and significant Finnish art award, the ANTI Festival International Prize for Live Art, will be announced at the Festival. The prize is funded by the Saastamoinen Foundation. An international jury, chaired by Ruth Mackenzie (UK), has chosen the winner from six nominees. The 13th ANTI Festival will expand its operations to public spaces in Northern Savo at the end of September and audiences will be offered events to watch and also to participate in.

ANTI Festival presents live, sonic, visual and text-based art from today’s most exciting and innovative artists in the Finnish town of Kuopio. Free of charge ANTI Festival is a meeting place for artists and audiences fascinated by how art shapes and responds to the places and spaces of everyday life.

“Dance New Air” festival is a new international dance event for Tokyo, established as the successor to the Dance Triennale Tokyo held in Aoyama district since 2002. It is a 2014 international arts exchange program of Japan’s Agency for Cultural Affairs.

In its first edition running September 12 – October 5 2014, this new dance festival will feature eight collaborative works shown at Aoyama Round Theatre and Spiral Hall. The festival will last for 24 days, and also features a variety of other dance-related programs, including outdoor performances in the Piloti space at Children’s Castle, screenings of dance films at Theatre Image Forum, a dance book fair at the Aoyama Book Center main store, dance workshops, artists in residence and showings of their works in progress.

A form of expression preceding words in human history, dance continues to thrive globally as an art form to exploring further possibilities of bodily expression today. Artists around the world are facing diverse realities in different environments. They connect freely with each other and exchange ideas and thoughts on the issues facing humanity, then meet for face-to-face discussions that lead to powerful, innovative works of dance. 
The first edition of Dance New Air will focus on such collaborations among artists, transcending the borders of countries and disciplines, in an earnest attempt to explore new horizons in this field of physical art.

The festival will feature eight works by young stars of the choreography scene as well as workshops, dance film screenings and a book fair.  Three of the works on the program are world premieres, including The Red Shoes, a cross-over work of art, dance and theater created through a collaboration of the contemporary artist Nicolas Buffe, choreographer/director Shuji Onodera and actress Hairi Katagiri and a collaboration between Japan’s Akiko Kitamura and Yudi Ahmad Tajudin and other Indonesian dancers titled To Belong / Suwung.

Also on the program is the solo-work collaboration on the themes of family and children titled Project Pinwheel, with choreography and performance by Esther Balfe (UK), Young Doo Jung (Korean Republic) and Shigemi Kitamura (Japan).

Other works include Zan Yamashita’s collaboration with Korea’s Ahn Aesoon Dance Company to restage his representative work IT IS WRITTEN THERE; the newest work by Algerian-French choreographer and dancer Nacera Belaza titled Les Oiseaux (Birds); and the Japan premiere of a work by France-based Cecilia Bengolea and François Chaignaud in collaboration with two DJs to present a collage of various forms of disco dancing. Also presenting recent pieces are foreign-based Japanese dance artists Kaori Ito (presently based in Belgium) and Shintaro Oue (presently based in Sweden). Work in progress performances from a Romania-Japan residency exchange project will also be on the programme.

The 10th Gwangju Biennale runs in Korea from 5 September – 9 November 2014, under the theme Burning Down the House and explores the process of burning and transformation, a cycle of obliteration and renewal witnessed throughout history. It brings together 105 artists from more than 39 countries and will include 35 new commissions, each selected for their relevance to the theme of the Biennale.

Evident in aesthetics, historical events, and an increasingly rapid course of redundancy and renewal in commercial culture, the Biennale reflects on this process of, often violent, events of destruction or self-destruction—burning the home one occupies—followed by the promise of the new and the hope for change. The theme highlights the capacity of art to critique the establishment through an exploration that includes the visual, sound, movement and dramatic performance. At the same time, it recognises the possibility and impossibility within art to deal directly and concretely with politics.

Check out the video introduction (in Korean):

Running throughout the duration of the exhibition, both inside the exhibition halls and within specially customized spaces, are new theatrical, dance, and performative commissions by international and Korean artists. Involving more than 400 Gwangju citizens in their realization, these works will provide a constantly changing environment in the exhibition spaces as each day offers a new configuration. During the opening days specially commissioned dance works will take place in the Biennale Halls.

The Opening Schedule and special performance days include Simultaneous (Gwangju) by Singapore artist,  Heman Chong.

A special project for the 20th anniversary of the Gwangju Biennale, Sweet Dew – Since 1980, opened August 8, kicking off three months of city-wide performances, roundtable talks, international lectures and a major exhibition at the Gwangju Museum of Art. The title was taken from a style of Joseon Dynasty-era Buddhist painting, known for its themes of suffering and healing. The project was presented to initiate dialogue ahead of the open of the 10th Gwangju Biennale, reevaluating the city’s past and present, and will continue through November 9.

fukuoka asian art triennale

The Fukuoka Asian Art Triennale is an international exhibition to introduce the most up-to-date tendencies in art from 21 countries/ region in Asia, based on the continuous researches and art exchange programmes by the Fukuoka Asian Art Museum (FAAM) in Japan.

The 5th Fukuoka Asian Art Triennale runs 6 September – 30 November 2014. The theme is: Panorama of the Next WorldBreaking Out into the Future

The Fukuoka Asian Art Triennale presents paintings, sculptures, installation and video works as well as collaborative art-making, workshops and performance by inviting artists from Asia to Fukuoka.  In the 5th Fukuoka Triennale (the FT5), which commemorates the 15th anniversary of the Fukuoka Asian Art Museum, we will introduce the most promising artists in Asia as in recent years.

With four particular focuses stated below, we hold the 5th Triennale as our own unique international exhibition, aiming it to be “First-ever in Fukuoka and First Step to the World” in order to attract more nationwide and international audiences, along with ones from Fukuoka City and Kyushu Island.

1. While mainly focusing on and selecting emerging artists, who will be first introduced in Japan, the exhibition more actively incorporates the genre of video, photography, design, media art, and etc.

2. Setting up a special section, the exhibition intensively features art activities and works, which shows notably new tendencies in particular regions and genres.

3. The exhibition presents the artists who became internationally active after having participated in the Fukuoka Asian Art Museum Artists in Residence Program.

4. We aim to create a space of collaboration of Asian artists with people working locally in art and culture, such as visual artists, designers, architects, performers, researchers, et al. to provide them opportunities of continuous exchange and international activities for the promotion of culture from Fukuoka.

As part of Umeå 2014 European Capital of Culture programme, the Bildmuseet Umeå University presents a major exhibition of contemporary art from China.  The exhibition Right is Wrong / Four Decades of Chinese Art from the M+ Sigg Collection presents the rapid emergence of contemporary art in China.

The exhibition opened on 8 June and runs till 12 October 2014.

Starting in the 1970s, we follow the development of contemporary art beginning with groups of artists such as the No Name Group and the Stars Group, via the events on Tiananmen Square in 1989, up to the incredibly vibrant art scene of today. Comprising almost 80 works of various formats and mediums: painting, photography, sculpture, video, installation and performance, Right is Wrong presents a selection of seminal pieces by key figures in contemporary Chinese art history. The works are part of one of the world’s foremost collections of Chinese contemporary art; the M+ Sigg Collection from M+, the museum for visual culture in Hong Kong, presently under construction and due to open in 2017.

More information and images from the exhibition

Right is Wrong is an extremely concentrated contemporary art history narrated through a number of key works. It gives us the opportunity to look at the connections between art and society from the specificity of recent Chinese history by showing the development of the art scene in relation to the socio-political development in China.

Take a look at the beautiful Bildmuseet Umeå University – it may inspire you to visit the exhibition!:

bildmuseet_umea

Right is Wrong is organised in co-production between Bildmuseet Umeå University and M+, West Kowloon Cultural District, Hong Kong, and the exhibition premieres during the European Capital of Culture Year in Umeå 2014. The exhibition is curated by Pi Li, Sigg Senior Curator M+ with Lars Nittve, Director M+ and Katarina Pierre, Director Bildmuseet, in collaboration with Uli Sigg.
