In an article for theApro, Choi Bo-mi looks at the boom in Asian performing arts in Australia’s arts scene. Choi was an intern on a Korea Arts Management Service (KAMS) Connection programme at the Adelaide Festival Centre and Melbourne Arts Centre for 9 months in 2013/14.

The article focuses on performing arts festivals and markets in and around Adelaide and Melbourne.

It is a nation that is seasonally opposite to us, but time-zonally close; culturally and linguistically Western and foreign, but geographically and economically Asian and familiar. This simultaneously distant and near country—the most recent addition to Korea’s list of Free Trade Agreement partners—is Australia. While it has only become a significant economic and political partner in the last few years, on the arts and culture front, Australia has long since established as close a relationship with Korea as it has with any of its Asian neighbors.

The 2012–2013 Korea-Australia Connection Initiative: Performing Arts Internship, organized by KAMS and the Australia Council for the Arts, is a program that illustrates the depth of the two countries’ relationship. The Adelaide Festival Centre and the Melbourne Arts Centre, where the internship program has been taking place for a total of nine months, are excellent examples of the leadership and resourcefulness in Australia’s exchange of culture and the arts with Asian countries.

[... article continues]  Read full article on theApro

Choi Bo-mi has studied Culture & Creative Industries at King’s College London, and has since worked as a Promotions Manager at the Hi Seoul Festival, and at the Korean Cultural & Arts Centers Association as the Manager for the Jeju Haevichi Arts Festival. Until February, she had been interning at the Adelaide Festival Centre and Melbourne Arts Centre for a period of nine months.

The ANTI Festival International Prize for Live Art will be awarded for the first time during ANTI Contemporary Art Festival in Kuopio, Finland in September 2014. The six nominees for the award have now been announced: Franko B (UK/IT), Heather Cassils (CA/US), Frog King/Kwok Mang-ho (HK), May Say production (FI), Gwendoline Robin (BE) and Joshua Sofaer (UK).

The artistic directors of ANTI Contemporary Art Festival, Johanna Tuukkanen and Gregg Whelan, say:

“A total of 40 artist nominations were put forward by 10 trusted colleagues working across Europe, Scandinavia, North America, Asia and Australia. The process of reading each nomination, and hearing many of the artists’ work for the first time, was an absolutely fascinating and exciting process, highlighting the variety of mediums, forms and methods of artists working under the umbrella of Live Art. After some weeks of research and discussion, we have narrowed down the long list of 40 artists to a short-list of six exceptional artists whose work is outstanding in its investigation of art and the everyday, collaboration and encounter and the body, endurance and sociability.”

The winner of the ANTI Festival International Prize for Live Art will be chosen by three judges: artist Anssi Kasitonni (FI), architect Juhani Pallasmaa (FI) and director Ruth Mackenzie (UK) as the chair. This judging panel, comprising three top specialists, provides a wide view of contemporary art’s diversity and its current manifestations.

The world’s first ever International Prize for Live Art will be presented at the ANTI Contemporary Art Festival in Kuopio in September 2014. The prize is 30,000 euros, with the winning artist receiving a cash prize of 15,000 euros and the same amount in the form of a production grant for bringing their new work to the ANTI Festival in 2015. The prize is funded by the Saastamoinen Foundation.

The 10th Gwangju Biennale will bring together 105 artists from 36 countries and will include 35 new commissions, each selected for their relevance to the theme of the Biennale, Burning Down the House. It runs in Gwangju, Korea from 5 September – 9 November.

Speaking of the selected artists, Artistic Director Jessica Morgan stated: The artists in the Biennale have embraced the radical spirit of ‘burning down’ the status quo while also celebrating the hedonism of sound and movement evoked by the title. Drawing on their free and open approach, I have worked with the Biennale team to make an exhibition that physically embodies this commotion. Burning Down the House shows that the strength of artistic innovation, invocation and opposition is alive and well.”

Demonstrating the dynamic, political and material production of the artists, the Biennale exhibition will be a carefully choreographed but at times explosive exploration of sound, movement, image and form. Throughout the entire Biennale space the graphic contribution of the Spanish-born, London-based design duo El Ultimo Grito presents a ‘smoke’-motif that draws together the exhibition architecture, designed by Delvendahl Martin.

Engaging with the unfinished history of the Korean War, Minouk Lim produces a new performance, video and sculptural work that assumes a significant presence both in the Biennale square and within the Halls of the exhibition. Also occupying the Biennale square and announcing the exhibition to the arriving public is a major new commission by Jeremy Deller, alongside the specially produced burning stoves of Sterling Ruby.

Located primarily in the Biennale Halls, the exhibition treats each of the five large-scale spaces as connected but independently atmospheric zones, their entrances and exits defined by new commissions and existing works by Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla, Jack Goldstein, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Carsten Höller, Pierre Huyghe, Jeong A Koo, and Piotr Uklański that draw attention to the transitional experience of entering into the Biennale through actions, performances and art works that animate and incite.

Running throughout the time of the exhibition, both inside the exhibition halls and within specially customised spaces, are new theatrical, dance, and performative commissions by the Japanese/Korean collaborators Ei Arakawa and Inza Lim, the Paris-based, French-Argentinean dance duo Cecilia Bengolea and François Chaignaud, London-based Korean artist Young in Hong, Korean dancer and choreographer Geumhyung Jeong, and the agit-prop Seoul-based Okin Collective.

Preparations for the 3rd Jakarta Contemporary Ceramics Biennale (JCCB) are underway as ceramics artists from Singapore, Slovenia, Wales, the Netherlands and Thailand take up summer residencies in ceramics studios in Java and Bali as part of the programme.

The third Jakarta Contemporary Ceramics Biennale (JCCB#3) takes place 23 September – 13 October at Galeri Nasional in Jakarta, Indonesia, on the theme: “Coefficient of Expansion”. The term is intended as a metaphor describing the diverse and extensive boundaries of ceramic art.

Read about the interesting ceramics residency locations and artists now preparing this event across Indonesia.

Artist Residency Program in Pejaten, Bali: Steven Low Thia Kwang (Singapore) will be working at Tanteri Ceramic Studio from June 2 to June 20, 2014. Tanteri Ceramic Studio is built on a family business that capitalizes on global connections, and was established in 1988.

Artist Residency Program in Jenggala: Kirstie van Noort (Netherlands) will be working within the tropical and richly historic environment of Bali, where Jenggala Keramik has emerged from a small experimental cottage industry in 1976 to a uniquely refined company of the twenty- first century. A strong forward-thinking sensibility brought together three creative minds of different backgrounds: the late Brent Hesselyn – an artist and potter from New Zealand, the late Wija Waworuntu – a local hotel magnet who contributed in developing the business, and Ade Waworuntu…

Artist Residency Program in FSRD-ITB: Sarah Younan (Wales) will be working at the Ceramic Studio of FSRD-ITB from August 10 to September 10, 2014. The Ceramic Studio is a workspace that belongs to the Faculty of Art and Design – Bandung Institute of Technology (FSRD-ITB), which is located in the heart of Bandung, the capital city of West Java.

Artist Residency Program in Bayat: Kristina Rutar (Slovenia) and Amornthep Mahamart (Thailand) will be working at Pagerjurang Ceramic Studio from August 10 to September 10, 2014. Pagerjurang (PaJu) Ceramic Studio is located one-hour drive from the city of Yogyakarta. The studio is close to Pagerjurang Village, a local pottery center.

VND200 billion for conical hat theatres

At the end of April, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism in Vietnam issued a draft cultural plan to develop performing arts in the country with view towards 2030. Deputy Minister Vuong Duy Bien answers questions from Vietnam.net on the controversial cultural plan.

The cost of this plan has been criticised as being illusory by many people. How was this figure arrived at?

In 2008, the Politburo issued Resolution 23, which aimed to develop the arts and culture. We were assigned five projects including building new theatres and renovating old cinemas and museums. Last year, the Prime Minister approved of the project. According to the plan, 21 theatres will be built and 20 will be renovated. Also, 106 cinemas and 102 museums are in need of renovation. Moreover, we have to provide equipment to mobile cinemas and private museums. The total capital is VND10.8 trillion, of which VND6.5 trillion will be allocated from state budget.

Does this mean that VND10.8 trillion would be equally spent on the visual and performing arts?

Yes, and the money will be gradually disbursed until 2020 in 63 cities and provinces. Investment for arts and culture isn’t expensive when the returns are considered. Many people think that VND10.8 trillion will be given to us just to build theatres. This is a misunderstanding. The money will be given to local authorities.

Can you explain why nearly VND7 trillion is needed to build and renovate 71 theatres?

You are referring to the first draft plan, which has been revised in order to meet the Prime Minister’s directive and our country’s situation.

Aside from the huge budget, many people are also concerned over decision to build thousands-seats theatres in disadvantaged areas. What is your opinion about this?

The V&A Museum in London has signed a collaboration deal with China to set up the country’s first major design museum in Shenzhen. Due to open end of 2016, the new museum will be designed by Tokyo architect Fumihiko Maki.

London’s Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) and China Merchants Group (CMG) officially announced a pioneering collaboration on 17 June 2014 to create the first major design museum in Shenzhen’s Shekou district. The collaboration agreement between the two entities is the first one to be signed between one of the oldest and most influential companies in China and a public institution in the United Kingdom.

The museum will be jointly run by the V&A and local professionals and will boost China’s design industry and creative scene in Shenzhen.

As mentioned in the Architects Journal, the project is estimated at around GBP16 million (USD27,149,745). The museum, slated to open at the end of 2016, will be designed by Tokyo architect and 1993 Pritzker Prize winner Fumihiko Maki and his studio. The museum will be built on the grounds of the Shenzhen Sea World Cultural Arts Centre, which is currently under construction and also planned by Maki.

The V&A will play an advisory role to the Shekou Museum, helping with the development of the Shekou Museum’s own collection and providing the necessary professional training for its senior staff. A V&A senior curator will hold a three-year post as Head of the Shekou and V&A Partnership in Shenzhen.

The Shekou Museum will also be host to a dedicated V&A gallery, where the British museum will organise curated displays of its own collection and present its major exhibitions.

Creative industries are emerging as key components of the global economic and development agenda. These industries have demonstrated the ability to employ culture to provide insights into and solutions for the pressing social and economic challenges of our times. Adequately nurtured, creative industries are capable of fostering innovation as well as stimulating sustainable human-centred development.

The Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, the Netherlands and Het Nieuwe Instituut, presents a new publication comprising 36 good practices in the creative industries across Asia and Europe. The compilation showcases examples of policy and practice that may serve as inspiration for networking, collaboration and policy making. The mapping covers the four areas which will be addressed at the upcoming 6th Culture Ministers’ Meeting of the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) in October 2014 in Rotterdam, namely creative skills, creative entrepreneurs, creative cities: sustainability, and creative cities: quality of life.

The publication was launched on the occasion of the first Senior Officials Meeting of the 6th ASEM Culture Ministers’ Meeting on 20 June 2014.

dialogue-on-documentary-film-in-asia‘A Dialogue on Documentary Film in Asia’ is the focus of a series of articles in the latest online newsletter from IIAS, the International Institute for Asian Studies in the Netherlands. It is available as a free download.

Can film directors be considered to be historians of some sort? Do documentaries capture the sign of the times? Do they act as agents of change? How do new generations of filmmakers deal with old histories? Scholars are familiar with close reading of texts, but do they similarly ‘close read’ images?

Through a dialogue on documentary film, Guest Editors Fridus Steijlen & Bart Barendregt spark the debate in this issue’s pullout section of the Focus newsletter.

Read the Focus section to learn more about documentary film in Asia.

November 2013’s issue of the International Documentary Festival Amsterdam (IDFA) included a theme program on ‘Emerging Voices from Southeast Asia’, featuring fourteen recent documentaries from the region and several Q&A sessions with some of the directors.

The Newsletter is a free academic publication produced three or four times a year by the International Institute for Asian Studies. With a worldwide circulation of nearly 17,000 The Newsletter is a forum for scholars to share commentary and opinion; research essays; book, journal and website reviews; and announcements of events, projects and conferences with colleagues in academia and beyond.
