To celebrate its twentieth birthday, on 4 November Sydney’s 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art will stage a major symposium event Twenty Years at the University of Sydney with support from the Power Institute, the Asian Australian Studies Research Network and the China Studies Centre.
Twenty Years brings together those who have played a role in the development of 4A as a leader in Asian contemporary art in Australia since 1996. Discussion on the past, present and future work of 4A will be led by artists, curators and academics.
