Padat Merayap / Congestion - a talk with Chuong-Dai Vo

On June 13, Chuong-Dai Vo, a researcher of modern and contemporary art in Southeast Asia, will talk about Asia Art Archive (AAA) and its research collections.

When: 15:30-17:00
Where: Matthias de Vrieshof 2, Room 002, Leiden University 

This talk will introduce Asia Art Archive and its research collections. The Hong Kong based, non-profit organisation was founded in 2000 to address the dearth of primary and secondary material for research on modern and contemporary art in Asia. Since 2010, AAA has been working with artists, art historians, curators, and writers to digitize their work and make it available to a wider public.
The research collections are valuable repositories of print, photographic, video and other types of materials for primary and secondary research on modern and contemporary art in Asia.
This talk will also discuss other aspects of AAA, such as exhibition-making and its public programmes.
