Looking for the Invisible- the Abstract in South Asian Arts

Feb 25 2012

Akademi in collaboration with The Place presents an opportunity to engage in a cross-cultural, multi-disciplinary dialogue between eminent artists across the world of South Asian arts.

The symposium will investigate where abstract lies in the South Asian arts through the work of six prominent creators. Invited artists will narrate and present their work through informal conversations with their peers and take participating audiences through a personal journey of artistic/creative discovery.

This event promises to be an uplifting and inspiring afternoon for all curious creators, thinkers, artists and audiences. Looking for the Invisible follows an established history of groundbreaking symposiums such as South Asian Aesthetics - Unwrapped! (Royal Opera House), No Man’s Land - Exploring South Asianness (ICA), and Frame by Frame - A Symposium on the Dance of Indian Cinema and its Transition into Bollywood Dancing (Royal Opera House).

After the symposium delegates are invited to attend the performance of Aakash Odedra’s ‘Rising’ where he will perform solos choreographed by Russell Maliphant, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and Akram Khan, and featuring lighting by Michael Hulls.
