Event description
Then and Now: Collecting Art and Exhibiting Cultures in Asia Conference, Lingnan University in Hong Kong, 20-21 May 2021

About this event

The conference explores collecting and exhibition practices in different sites of cultural production where our imagining of Asia takes place. It has attracted about 20 scholars, curators and research students from around the world to present their recent research from both local and cross-cultural perspectives that contribute to art collecting, exhibition-making and the rewriting of their histories in Asia. The conference seeks to reveal how collectors, curators, educators, collection archivists and policymakers from Hong Kong, mainland China, Taiwan, Singapore and other Asian cities deal with art, collections and relevant cultural institutions. The conference will also highlight the role of these actors in shaping the practice of art collecting and the historical discourse of exhibitions that span from the ancient times to the contemporary period.
