“A Beast, a God, and a Line” curated by Cosmin Costinas features over 50 artists from South and Southeast Asia, including an addition of more Hong Kong artists, after its first iteration at the Dhaka Art Summit. The show aims to mark the current historical moment through the discussion of issues such as politicised religion, nationalism, loss of confidence in Western liberal democracy, unfinished processes of decolonisation, and resurgent Indigenous identities – which are concerns reflected in the subject matter and in the aesthetic choices of several artists in the exhibition. One tenuous leading line across the different aspects of this exhibition is textiles, which draw many historical traces and layers.
