Abstract:

"In recent decades, contemporary art in Asia and the Pacific has acted as a dramatic reflection of the social and political events taking place in the region. The unique perspectives and expertise of the authors contributing to this collection bring unparalleled insights to bear on this relationship between creativity and social transformation. Extensively illustrated with work by some of the most dynamic artists practising today, Art and Social Change is a map of the developments within contemporary art and society in Asia and the Pacific. As the most up-to-date survey available, Art and Social Change is an indispensable resource for those interested in the engagement of art with society."--Jacket.
