Throughout its 20-year history, Gendai has supported experimental curatorial and organizational practices. Originally founded as Gendai Gallery, the organization created space for East Asian artists and artists of colour.
As the new stewards of Gendai, Marsya Maharani and Petrina Ng are building upon the organization’s legacy of decentering whiteness by investing in the future of BIPOC arts leadership through collective research and practice.
With research interests expanding from issues of decolonization, collective values, working conditions, alternative governance, and radical allyship, Petrina and Marsya are informed by their roles and responsibilities as racialized settlers and uninvited guests working and learning on Turtle Island.
