Paradise Lost

A Curatorial-Art Lab for Asia Triennial Manchester 2018

21 NOVEMBER ALEXANDRIA LIBRARY RUSHOLME

23 NOVEMBER CENTRE for CHINESE CONTEMPORARY ART

In this special event organised as part of the Being Human Festival, exploring the theme ‘lost and found', Asia Triennial Manchester will continue dialogue around partition and the complexities of relocated identities and cultures. “Paradise Lost” will continue dialogue around partition and the complexities of relocated identities and cultures. This series will offer trailblazer events in community and cultural locations around Manchester, leading into Asia Triennial 2018. Led by Alnoor Mitha, Senior Research Fellow in Asian Cultures and Founding Artistic Director of Asia Triennial Manchester.

As part of an on-going Curatorial-Art Lab, we will have an open dialogue, a series of discursive ideas that unfold the ATM18 provocation – “Who Do You Think You Are”? It will provide both artists and curators to unload the loaded phrase in the context of their own practice, be it collecting contemporary art, sharing artistic ideas, and presenting and consuming art. The Lab series will be launched at Alexandria Library, Curry Mile Rusholme and the Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art (CfCCA).
