[SAW Dialogues] A&M Generation Gap: Artist-Run Spaces

What does it take to keep an artist-run space going? The speakers talk about the challenges and opportunities that come with operating an independent space, observations of the art scenes in which they work, as well as best practices and perennial challenges.

This talk is both streaming live on SAW Digital & happening physically at Gillman Barracks Block 47. For the physical talk, please register for a free ticket here.

Moses Tan is an artist and an enabler at artist-run space starch. In his practice, he is interested in the various intersections of queerness, melancholy, shame, affect and poetic resistance. He often works with drawing, video and sculpture in his installations. As an enabler at starch, he shifts between curatorial work and project management to help foster artistic experimentation.

Ha Dao practices photography through writing, curating and working on her own projects. She coordinates the programs at Matca while grudgingly accepting the new position as the only available event host.

Nindityo Adipurnomo studied at ASRI (Yogyakarta) and Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten. His work pays great attention to popular culture and thrives on the abundance of local crafts in Indonesia. He founded and managed Cemeti Art House Yogyakarta with artist Mella Jaarsma from 1987 to 2017. He also established the IVAA Visual Art Documentation Centre in 1995 and is on the Yogyakarta Biennale Board of Trustees. 

Ian Tee is Associate Editor at A&M. Through his interviews and long-form articles, he hopes to gather learning experiences from various practitioners and map out connections in the regional art ecosystem. Ian is also a visual artist exploring youth in relation to the themes of rebellion, vulnerability and identity.

During the extended lockdowns, many art practitioners turned to archiving to make good use of the unexpected downtime. We hear from archivists about the pleasures and pains of the archiving process, and the lessons they have learnt to make the endeavour as seamless as possible.
