Asian Art Publics: Understanding New Art and Museum Participation in Asia

Project: Research

Project Description

This project aims to understand new forms of public participation in Asia's arts and culture sectors. These sectors are undergoing dramatic development in 21st century Asia, with a major feature being new interest in public participation in art and museum initiatives. Yet, there is little research on this significant cultural development in Asia. Through researching new kinds of art-focused public participation in East and Southeast Asia, this project seeks insights into the renewed role of art in shaping public participation, cultural belonging and creativity in Asia. In so doing, it intends to make major scholarly contributions, inform arts and cultural policy, and assist Australian cultural and creative-industry partnerships with Asia.
