The Asia Society India Centre and the Mohile Parikh Center for the
Visual Arts (MPCVA) cordially invite you to a screening of new Asian
video works, "Fast Futures: Asian Video Art", followed by a presentation
and discussion with curator Johan Pijnappel on FRIDAY 15 DECEMBER 2006
at 6.30 P.M.
The 12 cutting-edge single channel video works are by young artists at
the forefront of new media art in China, Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Iran,
Afghanistan, Malaysia and Thailand. 'Video' seems to suit artists who
are confronted with the frantic fast-changing societies in the Asian
region. Created between 1999 and 2005, these works range in length from
one minute to 20 minutes. This evening's presentation will draw from the
videos originally selected by Asia Society Museum Director Melissa Chiu,
independent curator Yu Yeon Kim and Museum of Modern Art Curator Barbara
London for the fourth annual Asian Contemporary Art Week (ACAW) in New
York earlier this year.
JOHAN PIJNAPPEL, an independent art historian and curator from Holland
was part of the opening programme of the Asian Contemporary Art Week.
For two decades now his work has focused on art that uses modern
technologies such as video, computers and the world wide web. Johan will
introduce the selection of video-works for this evening, and speak on
the new media art scene in Asia today.
