AAA's booth at Art Basel in Hong Kong, The Body Collective, looks at the evolution of performance art in Asia from the 1960s till today. The display features artwork and other materials drawn from AAA's Collection, which includes the archives of Kwok Mangho Frog King, Ray Langenbach, Lee Wen, and Betsy Damon (Keepers of the Waters), among others. The related public programmes include events with artist siren eun young jung, performer and activist Maya Krishna Rao, and artist Xing Danwen.
The display is curated by John Tain, Chương-Đài Võ, and Özge Ersoy, with the support of Susanna Chung, Young One Cheung, and Hazel Kwok. It develops out of the exhibition Out of Turn, organised for the Serendipity Arts Festival in Goa, 15 to 22 December 2018, by Asia Art Archive and Meenakshi Thirukode, with the kind assistance of Sabih Ahmed.
