A Journey Through Asian Art | new series airs on Australian TV

Asian-Art-1-5-DVD-cover-onlyABC TV in Australia broadcasts a new series of short films exploring contemporary Asian art. In 'A Journey Through Asian Art', art historian Alison Carroll shows how Asian art came out of a century scarred by national independence struggles and bolstered by emerging economies.

Contemporary art emerges in an Asia where new ideas clashed with traditional ways.

Join Alison as she travels in Korea, Singapore, Indonesia, Japan, China, the Philippines and Australia, talking with artists in their studios and visiting museums, exploring storerooms and vaults and viewing some of the key art works from the 20th century that shaped Asian art.

Watch the trailer for the first 5 episodes:

DVD Series I (5 episodes) is out now and a second series will follow shortly.
