Building on such established anthropological approaches to art as those of Alfred Gell or Pierre Bourdieu, the Anthropologies of Art Network [A/A] seeks to extend the canon by curating new encounters on fields and discourses, including but not limited to international art biennales, post-Fordist artistic labour, global art markets, contemporary art patronage, and artivism. [A/A] facilitates international collaborations and aims to engage recent theories of art such as relational aesthetics, ethnographic conceptualism, and creative microtopias.
