The first offsite iteration of Asia Contemporary Art Week's (ACAW) FIELD MEETING, a collaboration with Alserkal Avenue in Dubai, stages 35+ newly commissioned performances, lecture-performances, curatorial talks, and a string of pop-up exhibitions by today’s outstanding artists, curators, and creative minds at Concrete, and Warehouses 46 & 47.
This year, the forum - curated by ACAW Director Leeza Ahmady - explores the act of collecting beyond the limitations of an art market lens to reclaim "collections" as the living energy of people: their research, processes, and meaningful activities.
Artists staging pop-up exhibitions include:
- Burcak Bingol (Istanbul)
- Nadira Husain (Berlin)
- Rana Dehghan (Tehran)
- Amina Ahmed (New York, Tehran, London)
- Zolaykha Sherzad (Kabul)

- Wang Haiyang & Gao Yuan (Beijing)
- David Libertson (New York)
- Bahman Mohammadi (Tehran)
