Platform to discuss various themes related to art nationwide and internationally.

Symposium "Global Art and Diasporic Art in Japan and Asia" Day 1

Japanese-English simultaneous interpretation available

This symposium is set in the background of an ongoing investigation under the rubric of Global Asias Art and Visual Cultures, which includes reflections on changing connotations of Asia, the modern and the global with its sets of networked economies and circuits of artistic production and visual flows. The symposium will continue with an evolving awareness of transcultural and transnational mobilities in relation to artistic production, but with a view toward internationalisms and the possibility of new internationalisms - a reexamining of the global, in part through a look at the reinscription of the national and international in the global context, which may also be taken as a push toward local specificities in relation to the global. This is also producing developing practices of global responsibility, including socially engaged and environmentally conscious forms of art practice that point to a planetary ethics of the visual. Thus, participants will cover topics from the national to the global and the planetary, from a history of Asian American and other diasporic Asian art to current global tendencies.
