ArtAsiaPacific’s November/December issue looks at artists who make visible the hidden and overlooked. Independent curator Eva McGovern-Basa pens a cover Feature on Melati Suryodarmo, who is redefining performance art in Southeast Asia. In November, Suryodarmo will unveil the 17th Jakarta Biennale, which she oversees as its first female artistic director. AAP editor at large HG Masters looks at how Korean sculptor Chung Seoyoung is stretching the medium via what she calls the “third form”—an unknown territory derived from collisions among objects and everyday encounters, infused with social criticism. AAP London desk editor Ned Carter Miles lays out an analysis of Rashid Rana’s studies in distortions of spatial recognition. In our Special Feature, Inside Burger Collection, art historian Karin Zitzewitz considers the work of Mumbai’s Jitish Kallat after visiting his midcareer survey at the National Gallery of Modern Art, curated by Catherine David. In Profiles, we look at Hong Kong-based artist João Vasco Paiva’s excavated experiences in his adopted city; Sri Lanka-born, Sydney-based Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran’s raw, visually discordant totem sculptures; and John Chia and Cheryl Loh, whose collection includes pieces by artists who express a “Singapore-ness in art.” Mimi Wong’s essay examines a new generation of mainland Chinese diaspora artists and curators in New York who trace the footsteps of their forebears, tackling the cultural limitations of institutional support. In One on One, Indonesian conceptual artist FX Harsono explains his admiration for Timoteus Anggawan Kusno and his fictional historical narratives. For Where I Work, we travel to Yangon to visit the studio of husband-and-wife duo Tun Win Aung and Wah Nu, who delve into archival material to address the country’s past injustices. In the Point, Dame Jenny Gibbs, respected for her early efforts in spearheading private giving to the arts in New Zealand, lists the many motivations behind arts patronage.

ArtAsiaPacific Magazine Description:

PublisherArtAsiaPacific Holdings Limited




For 20 years, ArtAsiaPacific Magazine has been at the forefront of the powerful creative forces that shape contemporary art from Asia, the Pacific and the Middle East. Covering the latest in contemporary visual culture, ArtAsiaPacific is published 6 times a year in Hong Kong, with editorial desks in 25 countries around the world. Our special annual issue, the ArtAsiaPacific Almanac, published in January, covers the major art events of the past year and forecasts the key trends of the year to come.
The dominant artistic influence in the world today - and for many years to come emanates from the vast territory that lies between Turkey and the Pacific island of Tonga that we call the Asia-Pacific. This territory includes India, China, Japan, Australia, Thailand, Pakistan, New Zealand, Korea and Indonesia, whose combined populations make up an amazing half of the world's total population. Also included are Burma, Cambodia, Kiribati and Uzbekistan - places hitherto overlooked, but which like their gigantic neighbors, are producing cutting-edge art of stunning and unexpected quality.
ArtAsiaPacific is authoritative, accurate, even-handed, exact and essential. Included in each issue is an up-to-date directory of the major galleries, not-for-profit organizations and museums with a focus on contemporary art from our geographical footprint. ArtAsiaPacific offers thoughtful reportage, analysis, comment and criticism to its readers made up of collectors, gallerists, curators, artists and those who want and who need to know the latest developments in the fastest-growing and most astonishing region of the contemporary art world.
