Join us for an evening with Holland Cotter—a 2009 recipient of the Pulitzer Prize and the chief art critic of the New York Times—as he speaks with Vishakha Desai, President and CEO of Asia Society, and Jay Xu, Director of the Asian Art Museum, about his enthusiasm for and experience in developing critical writing about Asian contemporary art.
Against the backdrop of the Asian Art Museum’s major exhibition of contemporary art, Phantoms of Asia (on view from May 18-September 2, 2012), the conversation represents the potential to stimulate and catalyze critical dialogue on Asian contemporary art in the Bay Area. It will also acknowledge Ellen Tani as the recipient of the inaugural Asian Contemporary Arts Consortium (ACAC) Writing Fellowship. The fellowship, which aims to promote and encourage critical thinking and writing on contemporary Asian art practices, provides the fellow with a forum on the online arts journal Art Practical to produce research and writing while creating a unique opportunity for emerging writers.
Hosted by Asian Contemporary Arts Consortium-SF and Art Practical in collaboration with the Asian Art Museum.
