For over 20 years, ArtAsiaPacific Magazine has been at the forefront of the powerful creative forces that shape contemporary art from Asia, the Pacific and the Middle East. Covering the latest in contemporary visual culture, ArtAsiaPacific is published six times a year in Hong Kong, with editorial desks in over 30 countries around the world. The special annual issue, the ArtAsiaPacific Almanac, published in January, covers the major art events of the past year and forecasts the key trends of the year to come. Read by globetrotting cultural tastemakers in the Asia region—equally at home in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Jakarta, Mumbai and Istanbul as they are in New York, London, Paris or Zurich—it offers advertisers a platform to reach the affluent and the influential.
The dominant artistic influence in the world today emanates from the vast territory that we call the Asa-Pacific, and includes Turkey, India, China, Japan, Australia, Thailand, Pakistan, New Zealand, Korea and Indonesia, whose combined populations make up an amazing half of the world’s total population. Additionally, the Asia-Pacific region includes Burma, Cambodia, Kiribati and Uzbekistan; places hitherto overlooked, but which like their gigantic neighbours, are producing cutting-edge art—literature, film, fashion, photography, architecture and design—of stunning and unexpected quality.
ArtAsiaPacific’s expert contributors present the region’s news and comments – spotting vital trends, identifying important artistic new-comers and offering timely critiques of exhibitions, galleries and studios. They offer thoughtful reportage, analysis, comment and criticism to their readers made up of collectors, gallerists, curators and artists.
