CONVERSATIONS | Local-Global: Redefining the Terms

February 19, 2022 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm AEDT

How do we understand the complexities and integration between local and global contexts? The new landscape of interactivity accelerated by the global pandemic has prompted a revaluation of the term “Globalization”–making the art world re-address notions of proximity and distance as well as re-examining cross-cultural discourses and the reflexive return to local communities. Join leading art curators, museum directors and artists in an international dialogue from Indonesia, Australia and Hong Kong discussing critical questions about the future space of art: where is the local located? What is the role and responsibility of the local in the global and how do we address the speculative nature of “cultural agency” and “national identity?

Moderated by renowned curator and Executive Director of Artspace Sydney, Alexie Glass-Kantor in conversation with Aaron Seeto, Director of the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Nusantara (Museum MACAN); Nina Miall Curator of International Art, QAGOMA; sculptor Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran; Executive Director of Para Site, Hong Kong and former Artistic Director of Kathmandu Triennale Cosmin Costinas, and Kimberley Moulton, Senior Curator, South-Eastern Aboriginal Collections at Museums Victoria and Artistic Associate for RISING Festival Melbourne.
