Asia Art Archive Open Platform 2015 | call for proposals

AAA2015Call for proposals for Asia Art Archive's 3rd Open Platform 2015, held in Hong Kong 15-17 March 2015, in association with Art Basel Hong Kong.  It aims to facilitate new conversations to develop new thinking and critical dialogue around recent art in Asia.

Application deadline: 9 January 2015, noon (HKT)

Asia Art Archive's third annual Open Platform programme, held in association with Art Basel Hong Kong (ABHK), is an integral part of AAA's endeavour to enable new thinking and critical dialogue around recent art in Asia.

AAA invites cultural practitioners from all disciplines to submit proposals for Open Platform. Taking place in March 2015, a series of 'meetings without walls' will be hosted at our ABHK booth. By leveraging AAA's network, Open Platform will support researchers, curators, writers, artists, students, academics, and art organisations to further ongoing projects, catalyse new ones, or simply make connections.

Applicants may request access to our contacts in reaching out to individuals they wish to invite with the option to include AAA team members. Meetings will not be recorded.

Topics of discussion should reference AAA's concerns and research interests, but we are open to suggestions. We also welcome contributions of material to enrich our collection, a free and publicly accessible physical and digital resource aiding the study of contemporary art in Asia.

Key Topics

Archive, art and literature, art criticism and writing, collaboration, commons, digital humanities, exhibition histories, geographies, histories of photography, independent art spaces, keywords, oral history, patronage, pedagogy, performance art, periodicals, politics and protest, publics, vernacular

Submission Guidelines

Applicants should submit a one-page proposal outlining the meeting topic and a list of up to eight maximum participants, including those individuals with whom you have personal contact and up to three people you wish to reach with AAA's assistance. We will do our best to facilitate the conversation.

E-mail proposal submissions: submissions@aaa.org.hk

Results announcement

Successful applicants will be contacted via email by mid-January and the full Open Platform programme will be available on AAA's website in February 2015.

NOTE: All participants must cover their own costs. Upon request, AAA can provide information for travel and accommodation in Hong Kong.
