FIELD MEETING Take 6: Thinking Collections by Asia Contemporary Art Week


Hosted in collaboration with ACAW Consortium Partner, Alserkal Avenue

Dubai, UAE | January 25 – 26, 2019

Curated by ACAW Director, Leeza Ahmady


This year ACAW acclaimed annual art forum, FIELD MEETING, premier’s offsite for the first time in Asia, hosted at ACAW Consortium Partner, Alserkal Avenue in Dubai — the MENASA region’s foremost cultural destination and arts organization. FIELD MEETING Take 6: Thinking Collections will stage a dynamic string of pop-up exhibitions, performances, lecture-performances and discussions by noted multidisciplinary artists, thinkers and creative individuals from all regions of Asia (with a focus on East Asia) in the context of a large regional event, the Quoz Arts Festival.

Ahmady’s conceptual framework for FIELD MEETING Take 6 investigates the rightful place of an artist in relationship to one of the most prominently used terms in the art-world today: “collection”. By taking on the task of decategorizing the word “collection” from the gripping talons of the ever-burgeoning global art market, the program aims to reveal and reclaim the artist as the first collector. To collect means to gather and accumulate something significant, whether tangible or not. In this light, artists gather everything, be they specific aspects of reality, fiction, or other diverse subject matter. They do this by the sheer nature of their activities as artists; the gathering and treatment of daily experiences, ideas, feelings, intuition, education, training, research, history, stories, etc. Artists accumulate such content by absorbing abstract, physical and conceptual energies within their consciousness to eventually transform them into a given form. In other words, artists create bodies or containers for the collection of their own ideas, insights, and mechanisms that become identified as art objects in the world.

Children Who Won’t Die
Screening & Talk

ST Luk presents a film centering on the vivid colors, undulating floor, irregular lines, and spherical rooms of the Reversible Destiny Lofts designed by Arakawa (Japanese-American) and Madeline Gins (American) in Mitaka, Japan. The film revolves the philosophy of the artist/scientist/revolutionary couple who believed that one’s destiny could be reversed away from death through transformative housing. Directed by Nobu Yamaoka and scored by composer Keiichiro Shibuya, Children Who Won’t Die proudly sings a celebration of life, highlighting the possibilities of a world no one could ever have imagined before.
ST Luk’s FIELD MEETING participation is supported by the Reversible Destiny Foundation (New York).


ST Luk is the Project Manager at Reversible Destiny— a foundation founded in 2010 to further advance the legacy of the couple Shusaku Arakawa and Madeline Gins in arts, architecture, and writing. Their renowned seminal work was presented at the exhibition Arakawa/Gins: Reversible Destiny at the Guggenheim Museum in New York in 1997. With a background in architecture, ST Luk worked closely with Madeline Gins to realize the couple’s last built project during their lifetime entitled Biotopological Scale-Juggling Escalator shown in New York in 2013.
