Journal of the Month: Asian Art News

AsianArtNews

The Journal of the Month for December 2012 is Asian Art News.

Asian Art News focuses on engaging issues surrounding contemporary art in Asia. The magazine includes articles on art history in Asia, news, poetry, and artist profiles.

Volume 22, No. 6 Features:

From Japan: From Flowers to Fireflies – Yayoi Kusama stands as a truly iconic figure at the center of contemporary art worldwide. Her boldness, sensitivity, and willingness to take risks have been central to the success of her extraordinary oeuvre. Her art and its associations are as relevant today as they were five decades ago.

From Hong Kong: Transcending Time – Over the past decade, mid-career painter Tsang Chuimei has carved out a unique position for herself in the Hong Kong art world. Her painting embraces both modern Western art expression and Chinese literati traditions. Tsang’s refreshing and unique aesthetic beckons the viewer into her private and introspective world.

From India: The Conundrum of Modern India – The world of contemporary Indian art is a dynamic, rich, and colorful one. Due to the vast range of ethnic cultures and their singular expressions, contemporary India can only be glimpsed at in a single exhibition. But a recent exhibition at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art provided a vibrant snapshot of India’s contemporary art scene.

Be sure to browse Asian Art News along with all the other journals the Library has to offer!

The selections you see above are ca. 1920, painted by members of the Philadelphia 10, a prominent group of woman artists who worked and exhibited together regularly. #artschool #librariesofinstagram #philadelphia #womenartists #oilpaintings
