APPEX Fellows 2006
18 artists, from Asia and America, were selected through a highly competitive review process to participate in the 2006 Asia Pacific Performance Exchange Fellowship (APPEX) program from July 3-August 11, on the UCLA Campus. APPEX is the groundbreaking laboratory where artists teach their craft to each to her and create work together. Since its inception in 1995 APPEX has brought together more than 200 traditional and contemporary artists from Asia and the USA. In this postmodern world where it is so easy to co-opt imagery and create cultural pastiche, it is essential that we seek collaborative models that are equitable, self-reflexive and culturally informed. Join us to witness the efforts of the APPEX artists and consider the benefits of international exchange and collaboration.
