renewed contact

In his 1954 book The Nature of Prejudice, psychologist Gordon Allport proposed that individuals’ inherent bias against people of different genders, races or classes could be overcome through increased contact under positive conditions. He was particularly concerned about the aftereffects of World War II, and how contact theory might help overcome racial and ethnic prejudices. As the world today continues to divide along these and other lines—national, political, religious—how can we embrace differences and establish new forms of communication? In the May/June issue of ArtAsiaPacific, we highlight artists who have imaginatively forged new links between themselves and others. Critic, curator and artist Banyi Huang studies the practice of net-art, bio-art and new-media pioneer Shu Lea Cheang, whose new work appears on the cover. Cheang, who is exhibiting at the 58th Venice…

we dare to dream: on lee wen

“Anida, nice bugs don’t bite but dream.” Lee Wen scribbled these words inside my copy of his monograph Lucid Dreams in the Reverie of the Real when I first met him in 2015. By that time, he already knew me as the “bug lady” because of my “The Buddhist Bug” series. I was simultaneously humbled and star-struck. Lee Wen showed an uncompromising commitment to performance as a language that unlocks possibilities for hybrid forms bridging life and art, and his works resonate for their poetic extensions of the body that unapologetically pushed against marginalization. By the late 1990s, Lee Wen was already a pioneering figure, a member of the Artists Village collective and Black Market International. At a time when performance art was being pushed underground in Singapore, he addressed social…

New networks of alterity and resistance Chicago’s art scene reflects its reputation as a “City of Neighborhoods.” Artists from China, Hong Kong, India, South Korea and Taiwan, drawn to the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, consistently bring new international perspectives. Rapid gentrification is currently pushing out many working-class people of color from their neighborhoods and into areas where they are crossing racial lines. Beyond the major institutions in the downtown area—the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago (MCA) and the Chicago Cultural Center—lies a network of nonprofit and experimental spaces that support artists of color, including Asian and Asian American artists, whose individual identities and cultural histories are intermixing, thereby shaping new communities. These independent organizations are bolstered by the nonprofits 3Arts, Threewalls and the…

guggenheim and sfmoma deaccession major artworks

Two American museums, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA), are facing criticism for selling important postwar paintings at auction in the first half of 2019. Deaccessioning, the process of removing an artwork or object from a museum collection—usually by selling it—is controversial, especially for cultural institutions that receive public funding, as artworks often return to private collections. Both the Guggenheim and SFMOMA plan to use the proceeds from the sales for further acquisitions. On March 31, Zao Wou-ki’s oil painting Untitled (1958)—which had been in the Guggenheim’s collection since 1964—sold for USD 14.8 million at Sotheby’s Modern Art Evening Sale in Hong Kong. The painting, a notable example of Zao’s formative “Oracle Bone” period, was donated to the Guggenheim by…
