走向公眾 – 共同課題 論壇

地點:北師美術館一樓,台北市大安區和平東路二段134號(捷運科技大樓站)

如何勾勒一個關於東南亞的圖譜,跨越種族、語言、民族、國家政體、經貿結盟等框架,以更具想像力的交往形式來思考彼此的「共同課題」?當我們將藝術生產放置於公共領域中觀察,東南亞各地的草根文化工作者、公共知識份子,以其獨特的藝術實踐方法處理政治現實,或自力開發,或互助合作以搭建共享的公共平台,透過建檔,計畫,藝術教育,走向公眾,這些實踐是否可能互為相佐的參照點?我們如何透過對話,搭接起互相理解的途徑?

由台北當代藝術中心主辦,鄭美雅策劃的「走向公眾-共同課題」,獲文化部105年度翡翠計畫補助及RC 文化藝術基金會的贊助,計畫包含了七天的聚會與兩天的公開論壇,將於11月12、13週末兩日於北師美術館舉行。我們邀請到七位來自印尼、越南、泰國、馬來西亞、新加坡,活躍於東南亞區域間的文化工作者們,分享他們長時間以來根基於在地的行動及論述,包含文化研究、動態影像策展、數位文化的理論建構、實驗性公共教育、長期駐地社區組織等實踐項目。透過共聚共享共研的對話形式,這些文化工作者們將與台灣在地學者、策展人、藝術家進行深度的交流,以各自於公共領域中的行動實踐,所面臨的困境及生產脈絡互為參照,重新思考我們的「共同課題」。

論壇受邀的講者包含來自印尼雅加達Ruangrupa的總監Ade Darmawan,Ruangrupa為一藝術家自發性組織的視覺藝術團體,成立迄今15年,致力於透過策展、視覺藝術實驗室、工作坊、研究與出版等多樣的實踐方式,在都市環境中挹注、推展視覺藝術觀念及活動。Ade Darmawan也是藝術家,自2013 年起擔任雅加達雙年展的執行總監。

Syafiatudina為印尼日惹Kunci Culture Studies Center的策展人、研究員,她將策展視為理論和實踐的交互作用,將藝術實踐視為知識生產的一部分;以KUNCI為基地,透過出版、跨域合作、行動研究、藝術介入和社區的母語教育,長期進行著批判知識的生產和分享。

Andreas Siagian為一跨領域藝術家,與多個自發性組織的共同發起人,包括lifepatch。lifepatch由一群駭客、電腦工程師、藝術家、文化行動者跨域組成,以印尼日惹為基地,致力於藝術、科學和科技之間的整合,借助創新科技之力,「DIY(Do-It-Yourself)」與「協作DIWO(Do-It-with-Others)」的精神,積極於公共領域中推展各項有趣的生活提案。

Narawan Kyo Pathomvat為研究者、策展人,同時也是泰國曼谷The Reading Room的創辦人、總監。The Reading Room是一座小型圖書館、文獻資料庫,也是一個當代藝術交流的公開平台,集結社會科學、文化研究、電影及動態影像創作者,進行各式的實驗性教育項目與知識連結。

Arlette Quynh-Anh為越南籍策展人、作家,其策展實踐將藝術視作一催化器,以視覺語彙來詮釋、詰問、陳述生命的各種面向;她同時也是藝術團體Art Labor的成員之一。ArtLabor關注於視覺藝術、社會科學與生命科學之間的探索,透過各項藝術與文化的生產性活動,以延展另類的、非正規的知識脈絡。

Roslisham Ismail為馬來西亞跨領域藝術家,作品含括裝置、錄像藝術和參與式計畫,內容大多與通俗文化的表現有關,並將之視為地方和文化另類歷史的再現。他另以自己位於吉隆坡的公寓為基地,創辦了名為「Parkingproject」的藝術家自營空間。

Qinyi LIM新加坡籍獨立策展人、作家。曾於香港Para/site藝術空間、新加坡國立大學博物館、新加坡美術館擔任策展人。沁怡對新加坡、香港,至整個東南亞區域的當代藝術生態及動態深具獨特見解。其策展實踐關注於發展視覺藝術的多元詞彙,作為當代藝術實踐回應社會變遷的體現。

Going Public – Common Tasks Forum

Time: 2016.11.12-13,  13:00 – 18:00

Venue: MoNTUE, 1F No.134, Sec. 2, Heping E. Rd., Da’an Dist., Taipei (MRT: Technology Building station)

How to overcome the barriers of races, languages, people, countries and economic alliance in Southeast Asia and to map a more imaginative association to consider the “Common Tasks” among all disciplines and regions? When we observe the production of art in public domain, the grassroots cultural workers and public intellectuals all around Southeast Asia have demonstrated a unique way of practicing art to deal with the political reality. They build their public platforms independently or corporately to share the archive, projects and art education programs with their community. Are there any possibilities that these outcomes can work as references for each other? How do we walk down the path of mutual understanding by ways of conversations?

Organized by Taipei Contemporary Art Center, the “Going Public – Common Tasks” project is supported by Taiwan Ministry of Culture with The Emerald Initiative Grants for Cultural Exchanges & Collaborative Projects as well as under the patronage of RC Cultural and Arts Foundation. Curated by Meiya CHENG, this project is a 7-day gathering and a 2 day public forum which will take place at the Museum of National Taipei University of Education on the weekend of 12th -13th, Nov. The participants we invited from Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore are all active cultural workers in Southeast Asia who will share their long-term locally originated activities and discourses about cultural research, moving image curation, the construction of digital culture theory, experimental public education program and the practical projects on long-term residential community organization. Through a series of talk gatherings with local scholars, curators and artists, the two parties from Taiwan and Southeast Asia will communicate in depth about the difficulties and practices context they’ve had in their practices in the public domain. By virtue of the mutual references created from these talks, we are able to reconsider once again the “Common Tasks” of our own.

One of the invited speakers is Ade Darmawan, the director of ruangrupa in Jakarta, Indonesia, and the executive director of Jakarta Biennale since 2013. Ruangrupa, an artists’ initiative, established for 15 years until today, concentrates on infusing and promoting the concept and activities of visual arts through various events such as curation, visual arts lab, workshops, research and publishing projects among the urban environment.

Syafiatudina is the curator and researcher for Kunci Culture Studies Center in Yogyakarta, Indonesia who sees curation as the interaction of theory and practice while the art practice as part of the knowledge-based production. Based in KUNCI, she has been proceeding with critical knowledge production and distribution by means of media publication, cross-disciplinary encounter, action-research, artistic intervention and vernacular education within and across community spaces.

Andreas Siagian is an interdisciplinary artist and the co-founder of several initiatives organizations, such as “lifepatch.” Lifepatch is founded by a group of interdisciplinary professionals consist of hackers, computer engineers, artists and cultural promoters. Base in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, lifepatch engages in the integration of art, science and technology by adapting innovative technology and actively promoting the spirit and concept of DIY(Do-It-Yourself) and DIWO(Do-It-with-Others)  in public domain that leads to various kinds of interesting ideas to be put into practice in daily life.

Narawan Kyo Pathomvat is a researcher, curator; the founder and director of The Reading Room in Bangkok, Thailand. The Reading Room is a small-scale library which works as a databank for literature reference and a connecting hub for contemporary art communication. On its open platform, a group of thinkers and film makers work on subjects of social sciences, cultural study and moving images are gathered here, to proceed and connect various experimental education programs with diverse knowledge fields.

Arlette Quynh-Anh is a Vietnamese curator and writer. Her curatorial practices consider art as catalyst which uses visual language to interpret, question, and narrate multiple spheres of life. She is also a member of the art group Art Labor. Art Labor focuses on the exploration among visual arts, social sciences and life sciences which extend an alternative and informal knowledge context through diverse productive art and culture activities.

Roslisham Ismail is Malaysian multidisciplinary artist whose works include installation, video art, and participatory projects. His practice is largely involved with the expressions of popular culture which in his eye is an alternative representation of local culture and history. He is also the founder of Parking project, an artist’s space based in his apartment in Kuala Lumpur.

Qinyi Lim is an independent curator and writer based in Singapore. She previously held curatorial positions at Para Site, Hong Kong; National University of Singapore Museum and the Singapore Art Museum. Lim insights on the contemporary art ecology and development in Singapore, Hong Kong and even the whole Southeast Asia is thorough and unique. In her curatorial practice, Lim focuses on developing a pluralistic vocabulary for visual art, one that reflects how contemporary art practice responds to societal changes.

All sessions will be conducted in English.
