International Symposium 2008
Count 10 Before You Say Asia:
Asian Art after Postmodernism

Symposium

Flyer A of International Symposium 2008, Count 10
Flyer B of International Symposium 2008, Count 10

In an increasingly connected world where Asian art is being incorporated into the global art scene centered on Europe and the United States, this symposium suggested in its title the need to take caution when discussing Asia and admonished against casual use of such concepts as “Asian” and “Asian-ness.” What will happen after postmodernism? The symposium critically assessed the state of contemporary art in Asia these past 20 years.
