Martell Contemporary Asian Art Research Grant
Several days ago I was informed that my proposal, Mediating the Mekong, for the Martell Contemporary Asian Art Research Grant was co-awarded! This critical funding will allow me to continue my research on information structures, media and contemporary art among and between the Mekong nations (Vietnam, Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, and Thailand. Unfortunately China was out of the scope given the budget). What is truly amazing is that the research of Leeza Ahmady, the grant's co-awardee, shall focus on Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. Both our projects intend to investigate arts in Asia where perhaps information is the most scarce.
The grant is made possible by the Martell Corporation and the Asian Art Archive in Hong Kong.
