. It is the first touring exhibition of the Guggenheim UBS MAP Global Art Initiative

Presenting recent works by artists from the region, No Country introduces audiences to some of the most challenging and inventive voices in South and Southeast Asia today. No Country is curated by June Yap, Guggenheim UBS MAP Curator, South and Southeast Asia.
The exhibition will feature artists and collectives from Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, and the United Kingdom, and presents works of an array of media, spanning from sculpture and photography to painting and video installations.
