Are the arts of East and West as separate as they might sometimes seem?
In a shifting world, what can different practices of artmaking and criticism say to one another across the linguistic, cultural, geopolitical, and geographical distances which might lie between them?
Performance is always a collaborative process – between artists for example, or between artists and their audiences.
How might this collaboration be extended across cultures, and across the differing sorts of participants involved?
ArtsCross brings together an international group of artists, academics, policy makers and audiences to address these very questions (and more) by making and observing work together, writing on blogs, in academic journals and in the media, and by meeting and engaging one another in dialogue in studios, on stages and online.
The Creative Process begins on 1 August at Taipei National University of the Arts
