In conjunction with our Arts Writing Mentorship Program, we are pleased to present an online lecture by John Tain, the Head of Research at Asia Art Archive. John will speak about his work at AAA, including AAA’s contribution to the forthcoming documenta, and how writing fits in his engagement with the arts.

John Tain’s recent projects include AAA’s contribution to documenta fifteen (2022); Art Schools of Asia (2021-22), a gathering of researchers surveying the intersection of the pedagogical and the social in the recent histories of Asia; the exhibition Crafting Communities (2020), devoted to the Thailand-based Womanifesto project; and MAHASSA (Modern Art Histories in and across Africa, and South and Southeast Asia, 2019-2020), a collaboration with the Dhaka Art Summit and the Institute for Comparative Modernities at Cornell University. He is an editor for the Exhibition Histories series with Afterall and CCS Bard, the latest volume of which is Art and Its Worlds: Exhibitions, Institutions, and Art Becoming Public (2021). He also serves as an advisor for Asia Forum, an ongoing discursive program. He was previously a curator for modern and contemporary collections at the Getty Research Institute in Los Angeles.
