7.00pm, Royal Asiatic Society, 14 Stephenson Way, London, NW1 2HD, UK
In the fourth of a series of talks organised by Calvert 22 and The Courtauld Institute of Art Research Forum, a panel will look at themes raised by the exhibition Between Heaven & Earth, Contemporary art from the Centre of Asia. Presenting the work of 23 artists, this show evidences and explores the emergence of vital, critical, self-confident contemporary art from a region that has been vastly misunderstood and misrepresented and asks what such works can tell us about the cultural imperatives of these nations and their position within a global context.
Contributors include: David Elliott (curator), Aliya de Tiesenhausen (historian of art), Almagul Menlibayeva (artist), and Sarah Wilson (The Courtauld Institute of Art)
The discussion will be followed by a drinks reception
Open to all free admission. Due to limited space this is on first-come first-served basis. Please arrive early
Calvert 22 will remain open until 9.00pm that evening and visitors are encouraged to come to see the exhibition either before or after the talk.
This event is organised by Calvert 22 and The Courtauld Institute of Art Research Forum in association with the Royal Asiatic Society
