Asia Art Archive March Programmes 2019

In March, Asia Art Archive (AAA) is presenting talks, activities, and exhibitions highlighting our ongoing research initiative on performance art. Join us for our annual artist’s lecture to be delivered by Zhang Peili, view an exhibition on the Lee Wen Archive, and visit our display on the history of performance art in our booth at Art Basel in Hong Kong. Exhibition | Form Colour ActionOn view at AAA Library, Form Colour Action: Sketchbooks and Notebook of Lee Wenexplores drawing as a site of performance. With materials from the archive of Lee Wen, a pioneering artist in performance art in Asia, the exhibition brings together his sketchbooks and notebooks—on display for the first time—as well as documentation of his performance works. The selection shows multiple alter egos that Lee created, and early manifestations of development use of the performing body as a medium that understands the individual as a part of the body politic. Click here for more information.
