Founded on an ethos of friendship, and emerging amidst a regional constellation of artists' initiatives and independent spaces, the series of festivals known as Chiang Mai Social Installation, staged contemporary art within everyday urban life of this city in northern Thailand.From temples and cemeteries to libraries, the town square, and even a dental clinic, these artist-led interventions present a self funded, anarchic alternative to Southeast Asia's subsequently expanding biennial culture while also marking the emergence of a wider contemporary moment.The first comprehensive publication on these projects, this book presents extensive photographic documentation alongside a multi-vocal account by its participants.David Teh's main essay offers detailed contextualisation and analysis, and is complemented by contributions from Patrick D. Flores, May Adadol Ingawanij, Uthit Athimana, Thasnai Sethaseree and participating artists.Part of the Exhibition Histories Series and co-published with Afterall in association with the Center for Curatorial Studies (CCS), Bard College, New York.

I am an Artist (He Said)

I am an Artist (He Said) PDF Author: Araya Rasdjarmrearnsook
Publisher: National Gallery Singapore
ISBN: 9811895775
Category : Art
Languages : en
Pages : 497

Book Description
“To be an artist is … just like shit in a clogged toilet, stubborn shit that can’t decide whether it wants to be flushed or to stick around” writes acclaimed artist Araya Rasdjarmrearnsook. Composed as an irreverent dialogue between masculine and feminine narrators, this book of essays is an uncategorisable fusion of art criticism, feminist theory, art pedagogy, gossip and autofiction. It is also an invaluable insider account of Southeast Asia’s contemporary artists being catapulted into international circuits since the 1990s. Araya’s provocative prose is lyrically translated from Thai for the first time by Kong Rithdee, one of Thailand’s most influential cultural critics.

Climates. Habitats. Environments.

Climates. Habitats. Environments. PDF Author: Ute Meta Bauer
Publisher: MIT Press
ISBN: 0262046814
Category : Art
Languages : en
Pages : 404

Book Description
Artists and writers go beyond disciplinary boundaries and linear histories to address the fight for environmental justice, uniting the Asia-Pacific vantage point with international discourse. Modeling the curatorial as a method for uniting cultural production and science, Climates. Habitats. Environments. weaves together image and text to address the global climate crisis. Through exhibitions, artworks, and essays, artists and writers transcend disciplinary boundaries and linear histories to bring their knowledge and experience to bear on the fight for environmental justice. In doing so, they draw on the rich cultural heritage of the Asia-Pacific, in conversation with international discourse, to demonstrate transdisciplinary solution-seeking. Experimental in form as well as in method, Climates. Habitats. Environments. features an inventive book design by mono.studio that puts word and image on equal footing, offering a multiplicity of media, interpretations, and manifestations of interdisciplinary research. For example, botanist Matthew Hall draws on Ovid’s Metamorphoses to discuss human-plant interpenetration; curator and writer Venus Lau considers how spectrality consumes—and is consumed—in animation and film, literature, music, and cuisine; and critical theorist and filmmaker Elizabeth Povinelli proposes “Water Sense” as a geontological approach to “the question of our connected and differentiated existence,” informed by the “ancestral catastrophe of colonialism.” Artists excavate the natural and cultural DNA of indigo, lacquer, rattan, and mulberry; works at the intersection of art, design, and architecture explore “The Posthuman City”; an ongoing research project investigates the ecological urgencies of Pacific archipelagos. The works of art, the projects, and the majority of the texts featured in the book were commissioned by NTU Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore.

Iconic Works of Art by Feminists and Gender Activists

Iconic Works of Art by Feminists and Gender Activists PDF Author: Brenda Schmahmann
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 1000414973
Category : Art
Languages : en
Pages : 279

Book Description
In this book, contributors identify and explore a range of iconic works – "Mistress-Pieces" – that have been made by feminists and gender activists since the 1970s. The first volume for which the defining of iconic feminist art is the raison d’être, its contributors interpret a "Mistress-Piece" as a work that has proved influential in a particular context because of its distinctiveness and relevance. Reinterpreting iconic art by Alice Neel, Hannah Wilke and Ana Mendieta, the authors also offer important insights about works that may be less well known – those by Natalia LL, Tanja Ostojić, Swoon, Clara Menéres, Diane Victor, Usha Seejarim, Ilse Fusková, Phaptawan Suwannakudt □and Tracey Moffatt, among others. While in some instances revealing cross influences between artists working in different frameworks, the publication simultaneously makes evident how social and political factors specific to particular countries had significant impact on the making and reception of art focused on gender. The book will be of interest to scholars working in art history, visual studies and gender studies.
