Event Details

Hosted by ACAC-SF and Art Practical in collaboration with the Asian Art Museum

Free admission; RSVP required (we are currently sold out but will release more seats on May 8)

Join us for an evening with Holland Cotter—a 2009 recipient of the Pulitzer Prize and the chief art critic of the New York Times—as he speaks with Vishakha Desai, President and CEO of Asia Society, and Jay Xu, Director of the Asian Art Museum, about his enthusiasm for and experience in developing critical writing about Asian contemporary art.

In the 1990s, Cotter introduced readers to a broad range of Asian contemporary art as the first wave of new art from China was building and breaking; he also brought awareness of contemporary art from India to the attention of a Western audience. He continues to write widely on non-Western art and culture.

Against the backdrop of the Asian Art Museum's major exhibition of contemporary art from across Asia, Phantoms of Asia, the conversation represents the potential to stimulate and catalyze critical dialogue on Asian contemporary art in the Bay Area. It will also acknowledge Ellen Tani as the recipient of the inaugural Asian Contemporary Arts Consortium (ACAC) Writing Fellowship. The fellowship, which aims to promote and encourage critical thinking and writing on contemporary Asian art practices, provides the fellow with a forum on the online arts journal Art Practical to produce research and writing while creating a unique opportunity for emerging writers.

This event is made possible by support from Galleria Park Hotel.
