In Dialogue: Drop a Pin

In Dialogue: Drop a Pin

(Xijing Men, The Urban Planning of Xijing, 2009)

Asia Society Northern California and the Asian Contemporary Arts Consortium are pleased to present "In Dialogue: Drop a Pin," a day-long conversation between artists, curators, writers and scholars to reflect on the spread of globalization, the oversight of individual localities, and the cultural implications of dropping a pin on the digital map of our global community.

The program references the virtual motion of dropping a pin on a map and the ability to draw new paths to any other point in the world. The day-long dialogue serves as an open platform to examine each speaker’s practice and the geopolitical specificities that have shaped it. Panelists will pull from their specific points of departure (Hong Kong, Zhejiang, Kabul and the fictional Xijing), linking them to various destinations and viewpoints, including the culturally diverse Bay Area.

Speakers:

Inti Guerrero, Colombian art critic and curator based in Amsterdam
James T. Hong, Asian American filmmaker and artist
Mariam Ghani, Brooklyn-based artist and Cooper Union and NYU Professor
Gimhongsok (of Xijing Men), South Korean multimedia artist


This program was organized in partnership with the Asian Contemporary Arts Consortium:
