In this issue

In this issue, Robert Liles introduces Tansaekhwa, a controversial movement associated with a loosely connected group of South Korean painters active from the late 1960s; from London, Stephanie Bailey meets Pakistani-British artist Rasheed Araeen, a pioneering spirit who, also in the 1960s, made some of the earliest Minimalist art; and the fully reprinted letter of Thai-Indian artist Navin Rawanchaikul that he wrote as a tribute to Montien Boonma (1953–2003), describing the Thai art scene since the artist’s death more than a decade ago.

In our artist and collector profiles, we look at the careers of Australian collector and philanthropist Gene Sherman and Indian photographer Anup Mathew Thomas. Guest contributor Taro Masushio meets performative artist Ei Arakawa, and contributing editor Isabella E. Hughes speaks with Doha-based Iraqi artist Mahmoud Obaidi about his concept of home.

In One on One, Hong Kong artist Lee Kit offers some notes about his obsession with a mysterious character named Johnny, who seems to be everywhere and nowhere in the artist’s dreams; in Where I Work, AAP goes to the home-studio of Ramin Haerizadeh,Rokni Haerizadeh and Hesam Rahmanian in Dubai; and our new desk editor Ruben Luong files a Dispatch report from Ho Chi Minh City. Reviews include: Louis Ho on the 19th Biennale of Sydney; Nadia al-Issa on \"How Green Was My Valley\" at White Box Art Center, New York; 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.
