In this issue

In this issue, Neo-Geo artist Ashley Bickerton talks to Entang Wiharso, whose paintings and sculptural installations weave narratives of personal and political struggle with magical realism; Jyoti Dhar introduces the elegant photographic work of Dayanita Singh; and Andrew Cohen revisits the career of Chinese artist and Stars Group founding member Ma Desheng. In our yearlong, 20th-anniversary project 20/20, which attempts to pinpoint unconventional artworks and concepts from 1993 to the present, Nicholas Thomas recalls his first encounter with the painting Kulukakina (After Experiencing Something Miraculous, Withdraw) (2004), by Niue artist John Pule, while Ringo Bunoan reflects on the influential work of the late Roberto Chabet, the father of Philippine conceptual art. Also in 20/20, HG Masters looks at Lamia Joreige\'s documentary video Here and Perhaps Elsewhere (2003), which investigates disappearance and memory in the aftermath of the Lebanese Civil War, and Hendro Wiyanto revisits Christine Ay Tjoe’s installation series “Lama Sabakhtani Club” (2009–11), a stark examination of spiritual faith and its relationship with pain.

In Profiles, Joyce Beckenstein sits down with art historian and former president and chief executive of Asia Society Vishakha Desai; Isabella E. Hughes visits the Abu Dhabi studio of Tarek al-Ghoussein; while Stephanie Bailey discusses the videos and installations by Dagestan’s rising young star Taus Makhacheva.

In The Point, artist Leung Chi Wo reflects on the state of art education in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region; in Where I Work, AAP goes to the New Delhi studio of Subodh Gupta; and Kevin Jones files a Dispatch report from Dubai. Reviews include: David Frazier on \"No-Mad-Ness in No Man’s Land\"; Susan Gibb on Siah Armajani; plus much more.

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.
