Speaking of Conversations: Q&A with Anita Dube
By HG Masters
At the end of a busy four months across the Asia-Pacific for major bi- and triennials—from Thailand and across East Asia to Australia—the fourth Kochi-Muziris Biennale (KMB) opens on December 12 in the southern Indian state of Kerala. As in past editions, KMB 2018 takes place in several colonial-era structures once used for trade along the water in scenic Kochi. New Delhi-based artist Anita Dube is the curator of the latest edition. In ArtAsiaPacific Issue 111 (Nov/Dec), we published an extensive feature by Jyoti Dhar detailing Dube’s career as a curator, critic and artist. Earlier in the year, Dube and I had met during Art Basel to discuss her inspiration, her plans for KMB 2018, and how she is looking to build relationships between KMB’s audience and the works on view.
