For the 11th edition of DRAF Curators’ Series, guest curator Victor Wang 王宗孚 launches the Institute of Asian Performance Art (IAPA), an international network to deepen the awareness and understanding of the history of early performance art in Japan, Korea, China and Taiwan.

About

Documentation of performances by Hi Red Center at the 1962 Yamanote Line Festival, one of the influential collective’s first events, by photographer Murai Tokuji. It presents 24 works by renowned photographer Minoru Hirata, which capture key performances and events during the 1960s and 70s across public spaces.
