The Faculty of Liberal Arts and Sciences and School of Interdisciplinary Studies presents a public lecture by Dr. Alice Ming Wai Jim

"Global Asias in Contemporary Art: From RoCH Fans to Björk-Geishas"

Tuesday 23 February
7:30 pm
100 McCaul St, room 230

This lecture explores three of Dr. Jim's current projects from Susan Pui San Lok’s "RoCH Fans & Legends" and Mary Sui Yee Wong’s "Yellow Apparel" to Tina Takemoto’s "Drawing Complaint: Memoirs of Björk-Geisha." She argues that research on global art histories in relation to Asia writ large concerns not only the transnational circulation of contemporary art but also local negotiations by diasporic artists of the complex global diffusion and transformation of Asian visual culture.

Alice Ming Wai Jim is Associate Professor of Contemporary Art in the Department of Art History at Concordia University, Montreal, Canada. She is co-editor of the scholarly journal, Asian Diasporic Visual Cultures and the Americas (Brill Publishers, Leiden, NL). She is the 2015 recipient of the Artexte Award for Research in Contemporary Art. From 2003 to 2006, Jim was Curator of the Vancouver International Centre for Contemporary Asian Art (Centre A). Her writings have appeared in publications including Third Text, Journal of Curatorial Studies, Journal of Visual Culture, Leonardo, Amerasia Journal, Positions, Yishu Journal of Contemporary Chinese Art, Precarious Visualities (McGill-Queen’s University Press 2008), Triennial City: Localising Asian Art (2014), Negotiations in a Vacant Lot: Studying the Visual in Canada (2014), Human Rights and the Arts: Perspectives from Global Asia (2014), and Mass Effect: Art and the Internet in the 21st Century (MIT Press, 2015).
