Bringing together 10 galleries this year, Insights illustrates the modern art history of Asia and the Asia-Pacific through curated presentation of works by important artists from the region.
Highlights include a series of new works by Korean photographer Heeseung Chung at Gallery Baton; Leo Gallery’s presentation with Lin Yan, whose work interprets ink and Chinese rice paper in a contemporary way; first-time participant Shibunkaku’s booth of works by post-war Japanese artist Morita Shiryū, a pivotal figure in contemporary calligraphy in Asia; and Axel Vervoordt Gallery’s presentation of ‘Encounter – A Mirror Woman’ by Korean artist Kimsooja. Asia Art Center will juxtapose the works of Lee Tsai chien and Fadjar Sidik, who are from Taiwan and Indonesia respectively, to explore the evolution of geometric abstraction in the two regions; while Nukaga Gallery will bring together works by Saori Akutagawa and Yuki Katsura, two radical women artists who represent the dynamic creative transformation experienced by women in post-war Japan.
