Each year, the Global Art Forum brings together a diverse line-up of artists, curators, musicians, writers and thought leaders. The Forum is recognised for its collaborative, innovative approach to the art world and draws on other disciplines and experiences to take a broad ‘helicopter view’. It includes performance, music, commissioned research and projects alongside live talks.
Over the years, the Forum has toured to Qatar, Kuwait, France and the UK, and grown to include publications, workshops and other educational initiatives.
In 2012 the Global Art Forum expanded to six days and featured commissioned projects and research, as well as live debates and presentations. Global Art Forum 6 was directed by writer Shumon Basar and characterised by a particularly innovative and dynamic approach.
