For the 5th year in a row as ART HK's official education partner, Asia Art Archive presents Backroom Conversations, a series of discussions in which leading experts and practitioners in the contemporary art field consider key issues affecting the art world. For the second year, the ‘AAA Burger Collection Keynote Lecture’ honours a significant voice in the field today and ‘Open Platform’ selects projects from around the world that demand to be heard.
Once again, AAA asks art professionals to reflect on the past 10 years through the introduction and consideration of three key works or projects. Which will actually be remembered as signifiers of the times? Which have the potential to impact the way we will consider contemporary art practice in the decade or even century to come?
