On behalf of the AN4AA community, we’d like to express our sincere thanks to our prior AN4AA co-ordinators Claire Roberts, Chaitanya Sambrani, Mark Erdmann and Wulan Dirgantoro, for all their work establishing the network’s foundational activities and creating an important space for profiling and sharing current Asian art research, especially through the ‘AN4AA Curatorial Talks Series’ and the ‘Postgraduate Workshop: Asian Art Now’ . We hope to build on their excellent work and continue to give visibility to Asian art research in Australia and New Zealand in both the arts sector and the academy.
As we settle into our new roles, we are starting to plan the 2023 instalment in our ongoing series of postgraduate workshops, which have been greatly valued by the postgraduate community, especially as a platform for connecting with other scholars across Australia and New Zealand, and for sharing research in progress.
We are currently seeking Expressions of Interest from postgraduate students in Australia and New Zealand focused on Asian art research, who would value the experience of representing the AN4AA postgraduate community and undertaking leadership roles for key AN4AA postgraduate activities. This is particularly through convening the postgraduate workshop, as well as facilitating a reading group.

· whose study is focused on any aspect of Asian art history and theory, art practices, curatorial or arts management, and/or museum and heritage studies and;
· who would ideally be able to commit to this role for any period between 1-3 years (can be negotiated)
Main duties include:
· To convene the Postgraduate: Asian Art Now Workshop, which showcases current postgraduate research across Australia and New Zealand
· To facilitate a programme of occasional Asian Art reading group meetings
How to apply:
