Different artists from across Asia join forces in a first-time collaborative video showcase at PointB (71 North 7th Street, Brooklyn, New York). MUST MORE, Visual Voice from Five Asian Countries, presents contemporary and innovative video works created by artists from Burma, China, Indonesia, Taiwan, and Thailand. The exhibition will be unveiled on Friday, 16th October 2009, 7-11pm.
MUST MORE, Visual Voice from Five Asian Countries is a must-see video show portraying the latest trends and experiments in the videoarts field – presenting a snapshot of contemporary Asian videomaking. The showcase highlights artistic practice in contemporary and global Asia, a region signified by the explosion of images and the massive practice of imagemaking. The thirteen videos featured are not another “Made in China” mass-produced commodity, but solid works of art that resist a pictorial and/or narrative representation of their respective countries. More than any other exhibition, the videos on showcase include recent works by both emerging (virtually struggling for MoMa’s recognition) and established artists whose works represent the rapidly transforming visual culture of the region and changing state of the political and social landscape.
Behold and join!
