This talk will introduce Asia Art Archive and its research collections. The Hong Kong based, non-profit organisation was founded in 2000 to address the dearth of primary and secondary material for research on modern and contemporary art in Asia. Since 2010, AAA has been working with artists, art historians, curators, and writers to digitise and make available their material to a wider public. These research collections are a valuable repository of print, photographic, video and other types of material for primary and secondary research on modern and contemporary art in Asia. This talk also will discuss other aspects of AAA, such as exhibition-making and public programmes.
Chuong-Dai Vo is a researcher at Asia Art Archive in Hongkong, specializing in modern and contemporary art in Southeast Asia. Her writing can be found in Afterall Journal, Revues culturelles (forthcoming), Southern Constellations: The Poetics of the Non-Aligned, Taipei Fine Arts Museum’s Modern Quarterly, and Journal of Vietnamese Studies.
