20 November 2020, 5.00-7.00pm (London time)
In this panel, the curators of Till We Meet Again IRL, Annie Jael Kwan, Arianna Mercado, Cuong Pham and Howl Yuan, exchange thoughts with exhibiting artists Yarli Allison, Bettina Fung, and Caro Gervay on the transition (and struggles) between “in real life” exhibition-making and going digital. Even before the pandemic, art has helped us connect with each other, in different spheres, across time, language, and geographies. Yarli, Bettina, and Caro weigh in through their work shared on Till We Meet Again IRL with varied mediums: moving image, performance, and photography; in relation to their investigations into different histories – archives, diaspora artists, mental health and communities, and notions of home and returning. In what ways have specific art practices changed and morphed after nation-wide restrictions and a critical rethinking of the way we operate within the art world?
