"Past in Reverse: Contemporary Art of East Asia features 22 artists and artist groups from Mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japan and Korea. As strategies for incorporating cultural and artistic genealogies in their work, these practitioners variously access traditional materials and techniques, established philosophical underpinnings, and behaviors surrounding the production and use of material culture. The region's cultural hybridization is asserted in their declaration that East and West are not separate and that the one is embedded in the other. Art historical interdependences within the region, in relationship to current systems of global connectivity, supply a dynamic framework for understanding these works of art. Yet the artists reveal new views on cultural predicaments and products which in surprising ways show as much disconnect as commonality, placing into doubt the notion of a regional aesthetic. Here Cai Guo-Qiang mines China's invention of gunpowder and its traditional landscape painting while Michael Lin creates furniture and floor paintings with blow-up versions of colorful, typical Taiwanese floral fabric patterns. Other artists included are Cao Fei, Yang Fudon, Yiso Bahc, Shizuka Yokomizo, G8: Public Relations and Art Consultants Collaborative, and Wilson Shieh.
