MIACA, the Moving Image Archive of Contemporary Art, is an organization dedicated to the conservation and promotion of moving image works by Asian artists. Directed by Hitomi Hasegawa, MIACA started its activity in 2006 in Yokohama, Japan and is currently based in Hong Kong. The institution organizes exhibitions, temporary video libraries, talk events, and lectures by artists and art professionals. Invisible Cities will be MIACA’s first collaboration with U.S.-based museums.

Dallas Contemporary is a non-collecting art museum presenting new and fresh ideas from regional, national, and international artists. Modeled after European art centers and located in an industrial building in the Design District, Dallas Contemporary is one of the few institutions of its kind in the United States, offering temporary exhibitions, important lectures, and seminal learning programs.

This project is organized by Hitomi Hasegawa, Director, Moving Image Archive for Contemporary Art: MIACA (Hong Kong); Lilia Kudelia, Assistant Curator, Dallas Contemporary; and Jacqueline Chao, Curator of Asian Art, Crow Collection of Asian Art.
