FIELD MEETING

The acclaimed annual forum for arts professionals, FIELD MEETING is an exhibition that emulates the experience of a studio visit on a large communal scale. It aims to nurture and develop lecture-performance as an important contemporary art medium. The forum has staged the process and activities of over 300 of the world’s top creative minds (artists, curators, philosophers, novelists, scientists, architects, filmmakers, poets etc) through newly commissioned performances, lecture-performances, provocative talks and lively discussions. An exclusive audience of 5000 curators, museum directors, collectors and art connoisseurs has attended 6 iterations of FIELD MEETING.
