No Country: Contemporary Art for South and Southeast Asia
UNITED STATES
NEW YORK  •  Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum  •  Ongoing
 
 
The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York will present No Country: Contemporary Art for South and Southeast Asia, the inaugural exhibition of the Guggenheim UBS MAP Global Art Initiative. The New York presentation features work by 22 artists and collectives representing voices in South and Southeast Asia today. Focusing on the region's shifting spectrum of creative practices, the exhibition traces networks of intellectual exchange and influence, and considers the various impacts of ethno-nationalism, colonization, and globalization on national identity. The exhibition features painting, sculpture, photography, video, works on paper, and installation, the majority of which will be on view in the United States for the first time. All works have been newly acquired for the Guggenheim’s collection under the auspices of the Guggenheim UBS MAP Purchase Fund. Following its presentation in New York, No Country will travel to Asia Society Hong Kong Center, October 2013 - February 2014. The exhibition is also expected to travel to Singapore.
