Keynote speakers: •Luise Guest & Jennifer Yang 09:15 - 10:00 •Mayu Kanumori 13:00 - 13:45 2023 marks the sixth year of the establishment of Asian Art Research Now, the annual postgraduate symposium of the Australasian Network for Asian Art (an4aa). The postgraduate symposium has become a flagship event for the network, bringing together early-career Asian art researchers from Australia and New Zealand to share their research-in-progress among postgraduate peers and experts in the field. The objective of the day-long symposium is to highlight and share the vitality and diversity of Asian art research being undertaken by current and recent postgraduate students and to foster supportive critique, feedback and conversations across institutions, as well as across the diverse geographies and temporalities of Asian art research. As a platform for connecting with other scholars and emerging academics across Australia and New Zealand and for sharing research in progress, we invite submissions from various academic backgrounds, including from MA (coursework or research) students to doctoral candidates, across the disciplines of art history, creative practice, arts management, museums and curatorship, and heritage studies.

The World in 24 Hours aims to provide a platform for researchers to share work that engages in local and international art historical discourse. We welcome panel proposals from art historians and curators at the PhD/ECR (within 5 years post-PhD or equivalent) to contribute to our ambitious attempt to listen to and spotlight work done around the world, about the world, within a 24-hour period.

an4aa Curatorial 6-Pack Series
SEPTEMBER-NOVEMBER 2021

The AN4AA Curatorial 6-Pack, a springtime series of conversations, will run fortnightly at lunchtime on Fridays from mid-September. It will offer opportunities to interact with the curators of exhibitions of Asian art produced by Australasian colleagues during 2021. We hope that these opportunities will serve to ameliorate the impact of the pandemic on the ability of many to visit exhibitions and engage with colleagues. The series will run as 1-hour Zoom Meetings and will include a presentation from the invited curator followed by a discussion moderated by a member of the AN4AA Coordinating Group.
