In each of the next three years, AAA will examine one element of 'global' art and its modes of circulation, display, and enquiry. In 2013, AAA starts with the notion of 'form,' exploring the impact that the 'global' has on artistic practice, in conversation with artists from around the world. The AAA Burger Collection Keynote Lecture, honouring a significant voice in the field, will this year feature the influential Delhi-based critic, curator, and scholar Geeta Kapur.
