Absolute Humidity is a new limited-edition volume featuring over thirty conversations with contemporary artists practicing in the Asia-Pacific region. The publication, edited by Brisbane-based curator and writer Tess Maunder, addresses the conditions that many artists are working under today; trans-national relationships, ecological threats, exploitation, anxiety, sovereignty, politics, identity, disputed territories and the shifting weather.

Join publication editor Tess Maunder, artist Chantal Fraser and artist and curator Katina Davidson for a discussion about the research project behind the publication and the collaborative process of bringing these important conversations together.

This event will be catered by Yes, Joy. Please register your attendance below.
