LIVEWORKS 2017 | KEYNOTE LECTURES

PRESENTED BY PERFORMANCE SPACE

Join us to hear the most exciting voices in the Asia-Pacific discuss their experimental and multi-disciplinary practices, and gain new perspectives into what it means to be making work — here and now. Responding to the thematic concerns of Liveworks and situating them within contemporary artistic discourse the Liveworks Keynote Lectures will reflect on the privilege and responsibilities of the cultural production in our current context.

 

FRI 20 OCT, 6:00PM – 7:30PM

TANG FU KUEN

Tang Fu Kuen – incoming Artistic Director of the Taipei Arts Festival, Taiwan – is a curator and dramaturg with an extensive history working with performance, visual and cross-disciplinary practices across Asia and internationally.

He has worked at the Singapore Arts Festival, Indonesian Dance Festival, In Transit Festival (Berlin), Bangkok Fringe Festival, Colombo Dance Platform, and as an independent curator and dramaturg with some of the leading contemporary artists from the greater Asian region. For this special Liveworks keynote lecture, he will share his insights into the most significant developments and challenges for contemporary art in this diverse region.

 

FRI 27 OCT, 6:00PM – 7:30PM

r e a

r e a is a pioneering Indigenous Australian media artist, writer and researcher of the Gamilaraay/Wailwan/Biripi nations. For over three decades, her critical investigations into technology’s role in visualising and defining the Indigenous body have made a landmark contribution to our visual culture.

For this special Liveworks keynote lecture, r e a will share her research and recent works to unpack these converging phenomena.
