NAVA Future Forward conference, Sydney

Posted on November 8, 2014

navaI was a participant in the first national visual arts forum organised by the peak body for the visual arts in Australia, NAVA. Over two days, three hundred plus artists and arts workers gathered at Carriageworks to discuss issues pertinent to the sector. I particularly enjoyed the keynote by Professor Nikos Papastergiades who gave a very intellectual overview of a borderless future. From Korea’s SeMa Dr Hong-hee Kim filled in some of his vision with real examples of the post-museum culture they are developing in new Asian institutions. I enjoyed meeting curators and artists and having some robust discussion about advocacy, internationalism and inequalities in the sector and have a lot to follow up on.
