Contemporary Voices from the Asian and Islamic Art Worlds
Published by Skira.
Edited by Olivia Sand.
A selection of interviews with contemporary Asian and Islamic artists
For over two decades, the London-based Asian Art Newspaper has been covering the varied and evolving world of Asian and Islamic art. Published monthly since 1997, each issue features a one-to-one interview with a chosen contemporary artist. Accompanying illustrations allow the reader to form a clearer understanding of each artist’s practice and vision, whether it be painting, sculpture, installation, photography, performance, video, film or music.
Contemporary Voices from the Asian and Islamic Art Worlds presents a selection of the art journal’s interviews, and is the first such book to cover the Asian and Islamic contemporary art scene, comprising both internationally acclaimed artists as well as emerging voices. These include Etel Adnan, Ghada Amer, Rina Banerjee, Cai Guo-Qiang, Tehching Hsieh, Y.Z. Kami, Lee Bul, Lee Ufan, Daido Moriyama, Yoko Ono, Nam June Paik and Walid Raad. Over the past 20 years, few other parts of the world have undergone as many changes as the Asian and Islamic regions; this book provides an intimate view of these developments from the dynamic perspective of artistic expression and creativity.
