This panel examines how Asia is rendered in and through curatorial
practices beyond nation-state, global north-south, third and first world
paradigms. In contrast to exhibitions that recall nineteenth-century world
exhibitions or present Asia regionally through a narrow scope of natural
disasters, human crises, or ethnic identities, a number of recent
exhibitions –biennials, curatorial collaborations– have envisaged “Asia”
differently. Avoiding dichotomies such as East/West and North/South, the
curatorial structure and selected artworks of these exhibitions
de-territorialize Asia, destabilize the spatial and temporal ways art
history, area studies, and Asian American studies conceive of Asia, and
challenge embedded understandings of modernity and transnationalism. The
panel seeks papers that offer critical reviews or examinations of these
exhibitions, specifically focusing on how they inspire alternative networks
and assemblages that open up new geographies and art histories through
metaphors of connection–archipelago, ocean, rim, port. How might these
connections for example reveal models of South-South art worlds or link
Asia and Africa, Europe, or the U.S. in radically different ways?
