The book From a History of Exhibitions Towards a Future of Exhibition-Making: China and Southeast Asia is the result of an ongoing assembly of platforms linked together under the same header, which were co-organized by Biljana Ciric between 2013 and 2019 in collaboration with three institutions in the region: St Paul St Gallery AUT, Auckland; the Rockbund Art Museum, Shanghai; and the Times Museum in Guangzhou.
The establishment of the research platform From a History of Exhibitions Towards a Future of Exhibition-Making was cemented in 2013 with the first assembly presented at the St Paul St Curatorial Symposium in Tāmaki Makaurau, Aotearoa New Zealand, co-organized with curator Vera Mey and the gallery’s director, Charlotte Huddleston.
The seminar was presented at the Auckland Art Gallery as a part of the public programme of the 5th Auckland Triennial in 2013 under the directorship of Hou Hanru. The first assembly included exhibition case studies related to China and the Southeast Asian region, as well as the local contexts of Aotearoa and Australia.
