September 20-October 30
Tang Contemporary Art has moved to a new location (3F, The Golden Place Plaza, Rajdamri Rd) and the inaugural exhibition at latest space, entitled ‘Northern Land, Southern Seas’, brings together the work of more than a dozen contemporary art heavyweights. The artists include Ai Weiwei (China), Apichatpong Weerasethakul (Thailand), Entang Wiharso (Indonesia), Geraldine Javier (Philippines), Huang Yongping (China), I Nyoman Masriadi (Indonesia), Korakrit Arunanondchai (Thailand), Rirkrit Tiravanija (Thailand), Sopheap Pich (Cambodia), Udomsak Krisanamis (Thailand), Xia Xing (China), Xie Nanxing (China), Zeng Fanzhi (China), and Zhao Zhao (China).
In the Ming and Qing dynasties, the term “Southern Seas” was China’s name for Southeast Asia, reflecting a China-centric view of the world. By contrast, Southeast Asian countries viewed China as the “Northern Land.” The exhibition is called “Northern Land, Southern Seas” to juxtapose these two viewpoints and shift away from regionalism. As such, Tang has brought together top Chinese and Southeast Asian artists in a welcoming and equal space to present and discuss their work.
