Initiated by The Factory in 2018, ‘Pollination’ provides emerging curators and artists in South East Asia the opportunity to co-produce and collaborate, to mutually benefit from this region’s private arts infrastructure – platforms recognizing the value of sharing (pollinating) their critical ideas and activities.
In 2020, we welcome LIR (Mira Asriningtyas and Dito Yuwono) from Yogyakarta, Indonesia and Kittima Chareeprasit from Chiang Mai, Thailand as the emerging curators who will lead the 3rd edition of Pollination, and we glad to have artists Maryanto (Yogyakarta, Indonesia) and Ruangsak Anuwatwimon (Bangkok, Thailand) to join us for this edition. The Factory is excited to be working with Selasar Sunaryo Art Centre in Bandung (with the support of SAM Art and Ecology Fund) and MAIIAM Contemporary Art Museum in Chiang Mai as our two host organizations for final ‘activities’ in December 2020.
The Factory also extends gratitude to Agung Jennong and Vipash Purichanont who, as curatorial advisors for this edition, assist overall project development and criticality.
More details to be announced as their project develops!
