Magazine Description

In this issue

Even before we had completed this year’s Almanac, it occurred to us that closure was impossible. As our 2018 Almanac reveals, the world is an unfinished symphony of shifting layers, a fantasia of patterns. For more than a decade, ArtAsiaPacific has published an annual compendium. This 13th edition of the Almanac would not be possible without the generosity of our associate sponsor, the Sharjah Art Foundation, and other supporters including Burger Collection, Mapletree, SAHA Association and the Frank F. Yang Art and Education Foundation. In Reflections, we invited six influential figures to comment on the year. Yayoi Kusama revels in 12 months of retrospectives of her work. Patrick Sun, founder of the Sunpride Foundation, pens a moving analysis on queer representation. Independent curator Natasha Ginwala meditates on her involvement in projects such as Contour Biennale 8 and Documenta 14. Australian art patron Simon Mordant weighs up the artworks he has seen in Sydney, New York, Münster, Kassel and Venice. Sultan Sooud al-Qassemi, founder of Barjeel Art Foundation in the UAE, commends the increased interest in art from West Asia. Aaron Seeto, director of the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Nusantara, removes his hard hat after the opening of Jakarta’s first private art institution. In Five Plus One, AAP’s editors selected five artists and collectives who have made significant contributions in 2017, along with one set for a transformative year ahead. These include Karachi-born, London-based minimalist Rasheed Araeen; the 400-member Japanese new-media group teamLab; New Zealand’s video and film artist Lisa Reihana; Beijing conceptualist Song Dong; Indonesian endurance performance artist Melati Suryodarmo; and the Philippines’ emerging video artist Martha Atienza. We also highlight significant museum and gallery exhibitions, and review anthologies and monographs released in 2017. In our News section, we document the year’s controversies and censorship.
