“Asia is experiencing an unprecedented pace of urban development. Although sizeable populations continue to live in rural areas in most of the region’s countries, urbanization increasingly encroaches on and affects various social, cultural and political tensions in individual countries.

Contemporary artists are ‘cityzens’ who live and work in urban environments, connected to a network of cities globally. How do artists and art practices today associate with the rapidly changing dynamics of the city? Do artists have a role as agents of change in the evolution of societies? How is this reflected in their thinking, concepts and their artistic practices?”
