inToAsia: Time-based Art Festival 2013 – MicroCities

  • Location:
    Stephan Stoyanov Gallery, Residency Unlimited, The NARS Foundation, The Queens Museum of Art, New York, New York, US

inCube Arts is delighted to present the first edition of inToAsia: Time-based Art Festival 2013 – MicroCities, with focus on Asia-based new media artists. Curated by CHEN Wei-ching, Joanne and LAI Lih-huei (Josiane).

"MicroCities" endeavors to investigate the current conditions in Asian countries by retroactively drawing back on their original states prior to colonization, through the experience of assimilation during colonization, to the individual predicament in the current and post-colonization period.

We showcase a group of time-based art, including videos, shorts, animations, kinetic installations, and real-time sound art performances. Coming from Taiwan, Japan, Korea, China, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, and India, these artists, with varying cultural and social backgrounds, reflect on their life experiences in relation to the world-wide social issues associated with a global culture, and how this affects the dynamics of the rising East Asian cities as a whole.
