TERRITORIAL AGENCY: OCEANS IN TRANSFORMATION
Follow on Ocean-Archive.org
Departing from the intersections of architecture, critical spatial practices, art, and activism, this Messy Studio hosted a discussion on Asia’s coastal Anthropocene and the way it shapes the future of urban living. This Messy Studio summit imagines daring contributions to these urgent and “as-yet-unsettled” discussions. Our new-old cities will perhaps be, as Italian philosopher Emanuele Coccia has recently suggested, “multi-species associations halfway between the city, the vegetable garden, the plantation, and the barn, where each living produce works for others and for itself.”
Guests: Rhine Bernardino, artist; Andrés Jaque, architect, Office for Political Innovation; Alvin
Li and Julian Junyuan Feng, curators, “Liquid Ground” exhibition; You Mi, curator and researcher; Irwan Ahmett and Tita Salina, artists.

Biennial Southern Mindanao Art Laboratory
ArtEx is a venue for art practitioners and cultural workers to explore and expand their art-based approaches. It is a laboratory for Experimentation, Exchange, and Extensions outside of their usual spheres of production. It is a multi-disciplinary platform for young art practitioners across regional Philippines, designed to have multi-site and interdisciplinary workshops,
looking at interventions as exhibitions, and transnational interactions and collaborations. The project is developed in partnership with several indigenous communities in Southern Philippines, programmed and directed by ARRteh Curatura, funded by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) and supported by National Union for the Restoration of Environment, Inc. (Nature Inc.)
"Dissecting the Female Body through Art Practice”
Pineapple Lab, Poblacion, Makati City, Philippines
One-day series of workshops exploring femininity and physicality through a variety of art forms and practices.
Led by JOYEN, Rhine Bernardino, and Ea Torrado, these artists look to encourage engagement with unique art forms and stimulate an interest in the power of the female body. Through genres as diverse as dance, movement, and even rope bondage, these workshops will help participants discover and articulate their understanding of the feminine facets of their bodies.
In addition to the workshop proper, attendees are invited to join in conversations with the artists about the workshop, the art practices featured, and their curiosities about the ways we relate to the female body.
The Rural Assembly: Contemporary Art Spaces of Connection,
Whitechapel Gallery, 2019, London, UK
The Rural Assembly draws on a series of public programmes and research that developed throughout 2018. It looks at contemporary artists and creative practitioners who are challenging the assumptions made about rural life and culture, providing a new vision of the countryside grounded in everyday experience and a critique of the rural-urban binary. Connecting the local to the global, this conference invites an international and transdisciplinary conversation on art and the rural, with a focus on profiling projects from across the world.
The Rural Assembly also forms part of the East Contemporary Visual Arts Network’s project New Geographies, chaired and coordinated by Wysing Arts Centre and supported by an Ambition for Excellence grant from Arts Council England. The programme has also been supported by the Jonathan Ruffer Curatorial Research Grant from the Art Fund, and made possible through the contributions of partners: University of Aberystwyth, Istanbul Biennial, Manchester Metropolitan University and Wysing Arts Centre. Further support has been provided by the Royal Norwegian Embassy in London, and SAHA for Fulya Erdemci’s and Pelin Tan’s participation.
