2018年 1月 1日 – 2018年 12月 31日

The Rockbund Art Museum is proud to initiate its first project under ‘Curatorial Practices in Asia’, About Second Assembly: Exhibition-Making Practices in China and Southeast Asia in the 1990s, organized by independent curator Biljana Ciric and Rockbund Art Museum.

Looking specifically at exhibitions from China and Southeast Asia during the 90s, a series of case studies, roundtable discussions, and keynote speeches examine the possibilities of exhibitions as a form and medium. They will explore how exhibitions can be read and understood across different social and cultural contexts, highlighting differences within the region, whilst also inviting new approaches and methodologies to pin-point areas for comparative forms of research. The project looks to draw further awareness towards the specificity and diversity of practices found within Asia—thereby looking to contribute decisively towards a (re)mapping of exhibition practices and histories using the different perspectives and local contexts found in this region.

These events consisted of new commissions, an open call of young researchers to activate new research, and public events sharing with audiences research-in-progress, eventually culminated into a two-day assembly hosted on the 24th and 25th November 2018, held in partnership with The Shanghai Study Center, the University of Hong Kong. In addition to these discursive events, a Reading Room provides another important layer to the project. It displays on the museum's first floor, the Reading Room provides a diverse collection of resources available to the public: primary archival material, critical readers, original catalogues, artist books, and out-of-print locally produced publications.


本次研讨会将聚焦 1990 年代中国及东南亚地区的策展实践,通过一系列案例研究、圆桌讨论和主旨演讲,探索展览作为一种形式和媒介的可能性,并探讨如何在不同的社会和文化语境下解读展览,突显亚洲各地的差异,同时拥抱新途径和方法,试图以不同的角度切入多样化的研究形式。该研究平台旨在吸引更多人关注亚洲策展实践的独特性和多样性,进而从不同视角及本土背景出发,对(重新)展现亚洲策展实践和展览史作出重要贡献。
