For a second year running, ArtAsiaPacific hosted a series of Guerrilla Talks live from the booth at Art HK in late May. Joining us in short, casual conversation, were over 30 artists, curators, collectors, museum directors, archivists and architects, offering a window into the diverse practices and interests that intersect at such events today.
On day 2 of AAP‘s Guerrilla Talks, editor-at-large HG Masters spoke with Lars Nittve, the head of the incipient M+ Museum of Visual Culture. Nittve, formerly director at the Moderna Museet in Stockholm, discusses the future of the M+ Museum’s nomadic programming and the museum’s relationship to the city’s artists and community. While acknowledging the project’s influence on the local arts ecology, Nittve defends the need for a large collecting institution in the city.
