This vibrant exhibition shares the perspectives of New Zealand artists who have undertaken residencies in China, Indonesia, India, Japan, Taiwan and South Korea. Through a wide variety of media including photography, painting, performance, video and sculpture, the selected artists have explored new places, collaborated with communities and created fresh cross-cultural synergies.
The artist residencies were made possible through connections and funding from the Asia New Zealand Foundation - a non-government organisation established to developing business and cultural relations between Asian countries and New Zealand. By establishing meaningful and thoughtful links these residencies contribute to an emerging legacy of exchange at a time that Aotearoa has become increasingly connected to the Asian region through immigration and economy.
"Visiting Asia" has been made in partnership with Te Tuhi, Hastings City Art Gallery and the Asia New Zealand Foundation. The exhibition is based on "Imagine Asia" originally exhibited at Pataka Art + Museum, Porirua.
