Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: The word "thermocline" describes a layer of water in an ocean or lake where warm and cold currents meet so that temperature changes suddenly according to depth. Likewise, this volume reveals the hidden substance that currently lies beneath the seemingly predictable surface of contemporary Asian art. With works by 117 artists representing 19 countries from the Middle East to the Far East, from Southeast Asia to the Near East and Central Asia, this big, boldly-designed book offers an excellent, comprehensive overview of contemporary Asian art production. Featuring both internationally renowned artists who currently work in the West and up-and-coming artists who still live in their home countries, this broad panorama expands the boundaries of the Western concept of art. Here, Asian art is contemporary and global but also postmodern and postethnic, unveiling the potential conflicts of globalization. Among more than 100 artists featured, some of the better-known names include Yang Fudong, Yael Bartana, Atelier Bow-Wow and Rirkrit Tiravanija. Edited by the prominent expert in media art and contemporary Asian art Wonil Rhee.
