Forum 1: Structural Integrity

Image credits ↓

Presented as part of Structural Integrity, a keynote project in the 2010 Next Wave Festival, this forum will bring together all 11 participating Artist Run Initiatives to explore the present state of artist-run networks in Australia and Asia. What are the benefits and challenges of cross-cultural exchange for emerging artists across the region? How have the artists responded to the Structural Integrity theme, and what do their works reveal about ARI cultures in Asia and Australia today?
