Asia: Innovation and Transformation

Convener: Chaitanya Sambrani

Asia: Innovation and Transformation brings together art historians, artists and curators from the School of Art and Design who have primary or ongoing engagements with histories, traditions and innovations in Asian art and design contexts. Reflecting the diversity of Asia, our research themes are broad. They range from historical research through to contemporary art practice. Museums, curatorial practice and cultural heritage are also areas of active research and engagement. Our research engages with contemporary issues of society as expressed through visual art practice and written text. Our goals are to facilitate networking, act as research resources within the group as well as externally, and develop academic exchanges. Collaborative research projects are a high priority as we aim to strengthen capacity in Asia’s developing regions and further strengthen links between ANU and the region. Another pillar of this research hub is to promote research activities in Asia and encourage and support emerging scholars.
