Asia Pacific Video

This exhibition focuses on performance, experimentation, and theatricality in video art throughout Asia Pacific from the 1960s to the present.

From hand-held recorders to elaborate and theatrical productions, video has allowed artists in the region to explore and communicate their social conditions, cultures and ideas on ever-evolving screen-based platforms. By performing for the camera, recording collective actions, and experimenting with technologies and theatrical scenarios, artists deliver a range of critical, humorous, and magical insights into their own artistic motivations and the contexts in which they live and work.
