Sharjah Art Foundation hosts the fifth March Meeting

This weekend, the Sharjah Art Foundation will host March Meeting 2012, three days of lectures, discussions and panels which will focus this year on the theme of “Working with Artists and Audiences on Commissions and Residences.” The keynotes will attempt to gauge the social and political impact of international residencies and commissions, as they relate both to the local site and to the broader global context.

There are too many highlights to list all in depth here, but Saturday will kick off with a blockbuster panel on “Commissions and Residencies in the Institutional Context,” involving Hans Ulrich-Obrist, Beatrix Ruf, Susanne Pfeffer, Eungie Joo and the Sharjah Art Foundation’s Judith Greer.

Other noteworthy events that day include a presentation by Shezad Dawood (who brought his zombie western “Feature” to Baibakov Art Projects Natural Wonders exhibition) and a conversation between Pompidou Centre curator Christine Macel and artist Anri Sala, whose gripping film 1395 Days without Red will be screened at various times throughout the weekend.

Sunday, Witte de With’s Defne Ayas will moderate a discussion on “Working Across Disciplines”, which will involve curator Alana Heiss and Bidoun’s Negar Azimi. Monday, The Ungovernables curator Joo and William Wells will discuss the New Museum’s initiative Museum as Hub, whose most recent project is a collaboration with the Beirut Art Center.
