Join the British Art Studies editorial team and contributors for an evening to celebrate the launch of our latest special issue, London, Asia, Exhibitions, Histories.

The thirteenth issue of British Art Studies, co-edited by Hammad Nasar and Sarah Victoria Turner, is the first major publication to emerge from the London, Asia research project. It is a collective attempt to explore the exhibition as a site for researching the entanglements between London and Asia, and deploys the digital publication British Art Studies as a platform for collaboration.

An overview of the issue with the editors will be followed by a panel discussion with Ming Tiampo (Carleton University, Ottawa and London, Asia Research Award holder), Annie Jael Kwan (Asia Art Activism) and Victoria Walsh (Royal College of Art). This will be followed by a drinks reception.

The London, Asia project is funded and hosted by the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art (PMC), is co-lead by Hammad Nasar, Senior Research Fellow and Sarah Victoria Turner, Deputy Director for Research at the Centre, and was established in collaboration with Hong Kong’s Asia Art Archive (AAA).
