CONTACT ZONES: FAR EAST / JUE JADE MA

12-28 NOVEMBER 2018

We are pleased to introduce the second curator-in-residence who participate in our international research grant program Contact Zones: Far East. Jade Jue Ma (Shanghai) is the Curator of the HOW Art Museum. She graduated from the Peking University with the bachelors degree in film production and media studies, and then continued her studies at the Art Institute of Chicago, where she received a masters degree in art management. As a researcher, she is primarily interested in the features of intercultural interaction and social practice in art.

As a curator and initiator, she has participated in such exhibitions, as "MANIFESTO: Julian Rosefeldt" (2017), "Lettres du Voyant: Joseph Beuys × Nam June Paik" (2018), and "ACCULTURATION, INCULTURATION, TRANSCULTURATION: Chinese Art in the U.S. Across Generations" (2015). She is a contributor to Afterimage, Art Monthly Magazine, and Scope Yishuke.

In ZARYA AiR, Jade Ma will focus on analyzing connotations and context of the emergence of two Chinese names for Vladivostok: Fúlādíwòstītuōkè (符 拉迪沃斯 托克) and Hǎishēnwǎi (海参崴).
