> DESCRIPTION

The Burden of Representation explores the state of abstraction in Asia today. In particular, the exhibition examines how artists in Asia have been and are continuing to rethink abstraction's relationship to representation. To what extent is abstraction about pure form, its representation or relationship to reality, or about representing the 'unrepresentable'? The exhibition demonstrates some of the positions in abstract painting in Asia today, and highlights how abstraction has become a point of convergence for different ideas about painting, including the social and the political. This in turn demonstrates the possibilities for abstract painting and its significance for cultural production today, in a context dominated by figurative and realist modes of painting.
