Uncommon Pursuits, established in 2018, is a seminar-workshop for emerging Southeast Asian curators who aspire to gain theoretical and practical skills to curate contemporary art in their translocal contexts. Participants are mentored by experienced practitioners on their curatorial proposals through readings, critiques, field trips and discussions, with recurrent critical questions including: how to curate/care for works of art in the age of art fairs and international biennales, how to work with and beyond institutionalized contexts, and how to research, write, edit and think as a curator.

Uncommon Pursuits Year 2 will be announced in March 2019. Please stay tuned!
