Of the many possible engagements with our theme, some include, but are not limited to:
• Classifications, geographies and identities – Possibilities of “Asian” and/or “Pacific” art: art and the archive (Hong
Kong), and the museum (Fukuoka, Wellington, etc.).
• Forging regional “cultural” alliances: Inter-Asia theatre, Asia Pacific Triennial, Pacific Arts Festival, etc.
• Art and the city – cities as sites, cities as centers. Global cities and new urbanities (e.g. Shanghai, Mumbai, Auckland,
Sydney, etc.) Cities as sites of public art. Exhibitions such as Cities on the Move, Paradise Now?, etc. Biennales
such as Singapore, Gwangju, Sydney and new biennales and triennials being planned.
• Traditional Practices, New Media, and Art against the grain. Negotiation of tradition and technology in practice.
Space for national heritage and culture and emerging alternative spaces/media for art.
• Economies of Art: The movement of art from the region across the global art market and the recent booms. The
role of museums, galleries and auction houses.
