Pamphlet of International Symposium1999, Asian Art: Prospects for the Future

After its initial introduction to audiences in Japan and other countries in the 1990s, Asian contemporary art underwent rapid changes in the subsequent decade thanks to globalization. Timed to coincide with the end of the 20th century, this symposium was an attempt at reviewing the tumultuous events of the 1990s. Featuring 18 panelists and attracting nearly 500 observers over two days, it was a confirmation of the potential of Asian art entering the new century.
