Purpose of the residency

Having engaged my independent curatorial research and critical writing with the study of the ideological and spatial correlations entertained between artistic practices and the public sphere in contemporary China, I am looking at deepening an understanding of such structures of inclusion and exclusion in comparative analysis with Japan, while delineating the poetics and politics of critical action spaces as product of specific spatial cultures and aesthetic traditions.

Plan during the residency

- individual interviews and conversations with artists, architects, curators pertinent to the ongoing series of projects entitled 'States of Distraction'.
- planning of exhibition event to be held in Shanghai, Fall 2009 (in conjunction with ShContemporary 09).
- layout of structure for publication (relevant to series States of Distraction) - related to first item.
