Asia Triennial Manchester

The UK’s only Asian art triennial opens 1 October – 27 November 2011 in Manchester, with a vibrant and exciting showcase of current contemporary visual art from Asia. Asia Triennial Manchester 11 (ATM11), initiated and led by Shisha, is a festival of visual culture that features a series of exhibitions, commissions and interventions by international and UK artists exploring the theme of Time and Generation, presenting new site-specific work alongside work not seen before in the UK, and challenging stereotypical viewpoints of contemporary Asian artistic practice. The artistic vision for ATM11 looks at one of the most important stories of our time: the migration of peoples from one place to other parts of the world. This continuous movement of people has radically changed our demographics, giving rise to new politics of identity focused on place, territory, belonging, global economic changes and community. For Asia Triennial Manchester 2011, The International 3 is working with performance artist Enkhbold Togmidshiirev from Mongolia, whose performances (September 26 - October 9) will reveal and reflect on nomadic culture and its traditions. ——————————————————————————– This event came via Twitter user Creative Times (Thanks!) —————————————————————————----
