Rethinking exhibition practices and histories in China and Southeast Asia.

This book is the result of various ongoing assembly platforms linked together under the same name, all organized and initiated by Biljana Ciric and hosted by St Paul St Gallery AUT (2013), Rockbund Art Museum (2018) and Guangdong Times Museum (2019). In the texts presented, writers, curators, and art practitioners in the region revisit the importance of exhibitions as a form and medium presented at assemblies.

The contributors explore how exhibitions can be read and understood across different social and cultural contexts, highlighting differences within the region and inviting new approaches and methodologies that point to possibilities for comparative forms of research. The book draws further awareness to the specificity and diversity of practices found within Asia—and thereby looks to contribute decisively to a (re)mapping of exhibition practices and histories using the different perspectives and local contexts found in this region.
