For the past several years, the Asian American Arts Centre has held a series of slide slams, allowing new, young, or emerging artists the opportunity to present and talk about their work, meet and network with each other as well as with more established artists and critics/curators. Last year, the Centre hosted three slide slams, showcasing the work of fifteen artists working in various media.
ArtSlam will mount two ArtSlams this summer.
ArtSlam is an opportunity for artists to share their work with peers, general audience and art professionals in an open forum for critical exchange. This presentation can be done in slides or digital format.
We are inviting all artists of Asian and Asian-American descent as well as those who have been significantly influenced by Asia to submit their work for participation. (go to http://www.flickr.com/photos/13504173@N02/ to see picture of the past ArtSlams )
