Unit description:

Introduces students to the diversity and cultural significance of the visual arts in the Asia-Pacific region during the past two decades. In particular the unit focuses on the critical debate which has emerged in association with survey exhibitions such as the Asia-Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (Brisbane) and others in South-East Asia, Japan, China and the Indian sub-continent. Topics, such as art and politics, art of the diaspora, and globalisation and national identity, are considered. Through illustrated lectures and materials, students can expect to be introduced to the art and ideas of a large number of contemporary artists working within the region.
