ACAW 11: Mariam Ghani



Brooklyn-based Mariam Ghani (b. 1978) investigates cities in the process of reinventing themselves. She experiments with the nature of archiving and screen- and Web-based presentation, capturing moments of profound transformation. Her preoccupation with the translation of ideas across cultural and generational borders was shaped during her childhood in a household where American, Arabic, and Afghan cultures met. Ghani’s recent exhibitions include the Sharjah and Liverpool biennials. Recorded at the Museum of Modern Art on March 21, 2011. Our thanks to the MoMA staff for providing these audio files to ARTonAIR.org.

RADIO SERIES

In collaboration with Clocktower Radio (formerly ARTonAIR.org), Leeza Ahmady, independent curator and director of Asian Contemporary Art Week (ACAW), conducts interviews with artists, curators, critics, and experts working both inside and outside of Asia. The program will include Ahmady's reports from around town and will feature select recordings of conversations, talks, and panel discussions across venues in New York City.

Born in Afghanistan and based in New York, Ahmady is an independent art curator, educator, and noted specialist in art from Central Asia. As the director of Asian Contemporary Art Week (ACAW) at Asia Society, Ahmady brings together leading New York City galleries and museums to participate in special exhibitions, receptions, lectures, and performances citywide.

Asian Contemporary Art Week connects leading New York City galleries and museums in a citywide event comprised of public exhibitions, receptions, lectures and performances. The Week focuses on the broad spectrum of artworks produced by Asian contemporary artists working in their home countries and abroad. Asian Contemporary Art Week is organized by Asian Contemporary Art Consortium. Clocktower Radio is a media sponsor for the events and the recordings collected over the years are available in this section of the archive.

Clocktower Radio was launched by MoMA/PS1 in 2004 as the Web's first art radio station. It has been independent since 2009 and is licensed to host content created under PS1 management. Programs produced prior to 2011 may refer to our earlier URLs and station IDs, including WPS1.org, artonair.org, and Art International Radio.
