About 2019 Asian Art Biennial
Organised by the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, and co-curated by Hsu Chia-Wei from Taiwan and Ho Tzu-Nyen from Singapore, the curatorial theme of the 2019 Asian Art Biennial is “The Strangers from Beyond the Mountain and the Sea.” It seeks to shatter the concept of delineation according to national territory, borders or geographical domains, and instead to expand from the outside cultures of “others” or “strangers” to a broader consideration of outside realms, as exemplified by “Zomia” and the “Sulu Sea.” In so doing, it hopes to re-examine our perceived boundaries and those of our society, or even our species, and thus assess the distinct historical experience of Asia and attempt a new interpretation of Asian culture. The biennial features a wide selection of artworks, including paintings, installations, video works, performances, and workshops by 30 artists and collectives from 16 countries.
