Jonathan Harris hosts seminar at Hong Kong Art Fair

Published: 21 May 2013

Professor in Global Art & Design Studies and Director of Research at Winchester School of Art Jonathan Harris will host a seminar to promote new artistic thinking at the Hong Kong Art fair this week.

The seminar, entitled Asian Art Worlds/Western Gatekeepers will be held at the Art Fair on Saturday, 25th May and constitutes one of the meetings organized by the Hong Kong-based Asia Art Archive as part of its Open Platform initiative.

Open Platform reflects Asia Art Archive’s engagement with stimulating new thinking in the field of art. Following an open call, selected cultural practitioners use the Archive’s network to host meetings in AAA’s booth at Art Basel in Hong Kong. These ‘meetings without doors’ constitute a place for the hosts to further their ongoing projects, catalyse new ones, or simply make connections.

The developing relationship between WSA and AAA thus opens up exciting vistas on global futures in art and directly reflects the aims of the Winchester Centre for Global Futures in Art Design & Media, of which Harris is Co-Director.
