Asia Art Archive (AAA) presents its March 2018 programmes.

Hong Kong Conversations: Women in Art
March 10
Fringe Underground, Fringe Club, 2 Lower Albert Rd, Central

Hong Kong Conversations is an ongoing series of talks that considers Hong Kong's art ecology within a wider cultural and sociopolitical framework. Organised in collaboration with the New Hall Art Collection—a collection of modern and contemporary art by women at Murray Edwards College, University of Cambridge—the 2018 edition builds on existing and new research, and brings together artists, researchers, and art practitioners to discuss how the status and representation of women artists in Hong Kong have changed from the 1960s onwards. The event traces personal memories and discusses collection strategies in institutions to open up questions around women in art in the region.

Exhibition and artist talk: Nilima Sheikh
Exhibition: March 22–June 30
Talk: March 29, 11am
Asia Art Archive, 11/F, Hollywood Centre, 233 Hollywood Road, Sheung Wan

On view at AAA Library, this exhibition explores the role of movement and travel in Nilima Sheikh's practice. Based in Baroda, India, Sheikh has reflected on questions of tradition, historical lineage, national identity, and cosmopolitanism in Asia for over fifty years. This presentation showcases photographs, videos, stencils, poems, folktales, letters, and the artist's own writings from her archive.   

Women Make Art History
March 27–31
Booth P7, Bookstores and Institutions Area on Level 1 Concourse, Art Basel in Hong Kong

AAA’s booth at Art Basel in Hong Kong, Women Make Art History, seeks to provoke discussion about women in art. On the occasion of their first appearance in Asia, the Guerrilla Girls examine the status of women in the Hong Kong art world. Also on display is a selection of highlights from AAA's Collection, comprising archival and library materials relevant to interested researchers. Furthermore, the booth hosts a Wikipedia edit-a-thon on women artists and practitioners in Asia, organised in collaboration with M+, West Kowloon Cultural District. These efforts are part of AAA’s ongoing mission to spotlight less visible art histories, making them more accessible for scholarship, research, and education. AAA is a Cultural Partner of Art Basel for 2018.
