Mapping Asia | AAA project and exhibition
Publication Project:Born out of the third issue of Field Notes, AAA's e-journal, Mapping Asia takes physical form in an expanded publication to be launched in May 2014. Contributions include a conversation between Rasheed Araeen and Chen Kuan-hsing around ‘Asia as Method’; a new iteration of MAP Office’s Atlas of Asia Art Archive; the first entry in Ho Tzu Nyen’s Critical Dictionary of South East Asia; Francisco Camacho’s hypothesis of the travels of General Zheng He to South America; a film plot by Teboho Edkins exploring new economics of tradeand their communities between Africa and China; Yin Ker’s survey of the work of Bagyi Aung Soe; a brief analysis of Okakura's diagram for Asiatic arts by Brinda Kumar; and Adam Bobette’s comparison of the relationship to land and property between Hong Kong and Yogjakarta. The editor's notes and clippings, as traces of their research, intend to highlight the undercurrents of the text.
Exhibition:Mapping Asia unfolds physically into AAA’s site through an exhibition at the library. The exhibition manifests itself in space through artworks, objects, documentation, and videos and material from AAA's collection. Artists and participants in the exhibition include: Agha Shahid Ali, Maria Thereza Alves, Bagyi Aung Soe, Adam Bobbette, Giovanni Botero, Francisco Camacho, CAMP, Teboho Edkins, Toru Hanai, Harry Harrison, Karta Healy, Zarina Hashmi, Ho Tzu Nyen, Kwan Sheung-chi, MAP Office, Tom Molloy, Erbossyn Meldibekov, Wong Hoy Cheong, Robert Zhao, Zhou Tiehai.
