After several iterations of accommodating international and local artists in Taipei as a cultural field to run the ADAM Artist Lab, for the very first time, the 2024 ADAM Artist Lab will be traveling outside Taiwan.
This edition’s Artist Lab is in collaboration with BIPAM (Bangkok International Performing Arts Meeting) and curated by artist and cultural leader Sasapin Siriwanij. Entitled ‘theirborhood’ (a coined word mixed with ‘their’ and ‘neighborhood’), this collective and collaborative program looks at experimental ways of navigating history, herstory and theirstory through space(s). Participating artists will be formed as a working group to visit curated sites, places, communities and neighborhoods to reimagine how the notion of history has shaped where we live in and question ways of sharing common grounds.
Artists have to participate in both phases and do the public sharing in Bangkok (in June) and in Taipei (in August). A final public sharing will be presented as part of the ADAM Gathering in Taipei.

Since 2017, Taipei Performing Arts Center’s critical project ADAM (Asia Discovers Asia Meeting for Contemporary Performance) has worked with artists from across the Asia-Pacific region and beyond to build a network and platform of cross-culture and interdisciplinarity and continuously generated various artistic processes.
ADAM Artist Lab is a collaborative, artist-led, and research-based residency program allowing artists with performative practices to think and work together, inventing new ideas and future collaborations. At the end of their residency, participating artists will give a series of public sharing events with their findings to local audiences and international professionals, as part of the ADAM Gathering.
