Exhibition Objectives

Asia is undergoing a period of spectacular transformation and development. In the fields of both contemporary photography and art interest in Asia continues to grow. This exhibition will focus on the current state of the family, sexuality and gender to introduce the changing face of contemporary Asia through the work of women artists representing China, Singapore, Taiwan, South Korea, Zainichi Korean(residing in Japan)and Japan. They may vary in nationality, age, and artistic career, but are all highly regarded as Asian contemporary artists and through their sense of values they share the ever-changing ‘now’ of Asia. Each of them confronts their reality and the ‘now’ directly, to keep moving forward. In the depths of their gaze, we are able to see that they ‘know something about love.’
