DESCRIPTION

Asia Unspecific refers to the complexity of influences that shape artists today who are more or less nomads, moving through different cultural spheres. It is an exhibition about the ongoing dialogue that each artist has in response to an adopted culture and one that is familial as he or she circulates through a system of influence and exchange that is increasingly complex and hopefully rich. In today's closely connected 'postnational' world, otherness and community depend upon so many more factors and identity is increasingly hybridized and hyphenated, resulting in an art of strange and wonderful fusions. While this exhibition features Chinese, Japanese and Korean artists, it is a reference to all artists who live and work without fixed borders.
