The Arts in Asia are thriving with a rapidly increasing number of new arts venues, festivals, publications and events to meet the demands of the growing middle classes. While Art scenes grow and florish in countries including Korea, China, India, Indonesia and Japan, little recognition is given in Art curricular in Australia that acknowledges or indeed prepares artists for the shift towards an ‘Asian Century’. How can we recognise ourselves within the Pacific Asian region? What commonalities and inspirations can be found across cultural divides? Which artists inspire interest and how can students imagine collaborating with them? This subject provides an introduction to some of the key artistic, political , economic and cultural movements of Asia in the 20th and 21st Centuries. It will equip established and emerging artists with the tools to explore resonances across cultural divides and encourage further exploration through the arts of the distinct social-political histories of decolinisation and the postcolonial, and postmodern formations of contemporary Asia.
