Conversations

 

The Conversations program offers visitors and galleries the opportunity to engage with an extensive public talks and events program, with each event intended to further explore and celebrate the local and international fine art photography market and celebrate artists from across the Asia Pacific region.  

The 2018 Conversations program was lead by collectors, curators and artists and encouraged lively debate with its audiences. Panel discussions focused on collecting, contemporary museums and moving image with highlight speakers including collectors Wang Jun (Collector and Founder of the Light Society, Beijing) Lu Xun, (Collector and Founder & Sifang Museum, Nanjing) and Lindsay Taylor (University of Salford Art Collection) alongside curators Thomas Dukes (Open Eye, Liverpool), Martin Barnes (Victoria & Albert Museum, London) and Victor Wang (Independent curator, London). Artists in conversation continued to be the cornerstone of the programming and included leading Chinese artists Shi Guorui, Hai Bo and Cai Dongdong alongside international artists Seung Woo Back, Anja Niemi and Giovanni Ozzola.
