March Meeting 2013 explores the concept of Sharjah Biennial 11. Inspired by the courtyard in Islamic architecture—in particular the historical courtyards of Sharjah, where elements of both public and private life intertwine—SB11 Curator Yuko Hasegawa proposes a new cultural cartography that reconsiders the relationships between the Arab world, Asia, the Far East, through North Africa to Latin America.
March Meeting 2013 speakers include:
Sarat Maharaj, Professor of Visual Art & Knowledge Systems, Lund University & the Malmø Art Academies, Sweden; Paulo Herkenhoff, Director, Museu de Arte do Rio (MAR), Brazil; Hu Fang, Artistic Director, Vitamin Creative Space, China; Patrick D. Flores, Curator, Vargas Museum, Philippines; and Samir Amin, President, World Forum for Alternatives, Senegal.
March Meeting is an annual gathering of artists, art professionals and institutions concerned with the production and dissemination of art in the region and internationally.
Taking place from March 14 -17, during the opening week of SB11, MM 2013 is free and open to the public. Registration is recommended to reserve your seat and for future updates on the programme.
