Third Realm presents contemporary Asian art from the FarEastFarWest collection, a Shanghai-based organization that commissions and acquires contemporary Asian artworks and is housed at the MoCP. Capturing a crucial period of artistic production in Asia, Third Realm presents works by artists who use photography, film, installation, and performance to investigate liminal spaces. Covering a range of conceptual modalities and cultural contexts, these works disrupt binaries—of global and local, present and historical, spiritual and secular. Featuring artists predominantly from China, as well as Thailand, the Philippines, Japan, Korea, and beyond, Third Realm connects works from across East and Southeast Asia to present a view of contemporary Asian art that, while conceptually grappling with shared themes, is still resistant to broad categorization.
This original zine accompanying the exhibition features reproductions of key images, as well as an essay and additional texts by curator Davide Quadrio. This zine is not bound and comes in a vellum envelope.
