Political Practice: Independent spaces and projects in the Asia Pacific


Join 4A for an evening discussion moderated by Kelly Doley.

This panel will focus on the role of independent grassroots spaces and projects in the Asia Pacific working together to support experimentation, political and critical practices and forge responsive conversations that larger institutions may not be able to provide. International panelists Anna Eschbach and Antonie Angerer discuss the complexities and successes of running one of Beijing’s first independent spaces alongside 4A’s Director Mikala Tai and Jeff Khan, the artistic director of Performance Space. Pondering questions of cross platform partnerships, transnational programming, methodologies for supporting experimental artistic practice and ideas of feminist performance practice this discussion will be robust and dynamic.

This event will be Auslan interpreted thanks to support from the Australia Council for the Arts.
