LINKING THE DREAMS, ASIA RT LINK 2010 PILIINAS




Asia Art Link, like all other important art events elsewhere, started from a dream. This dream was centered on the belief that art can bring out positive results of transcending boundaries, building bridges instead of walls despite of cultural, historical and political differences among nations.

Of course it had to be envisioned and enacted by the dreamers themselves – the artists.

A brainchild of prominent artists/organizers Ng Bee of Malaysia and Trinh Tuan of Vietnam, with able support from Filipino artist Jeho Bitancor, Asia Art Link finally took shape during the three artists’ show at the Viet Art Center in Hanoi in 2007.

Geared towards establishing a platform where artists from the region can converge and exchange recent developments in visual art practice, Asia Art Link was launched at Hanoi Fine Art Museum in 2008. It was a showcase of 32 artworks, mostly paintings and sculpture from 31 emerging and established artists from Japan, Taiwan, Malaysia, Philippines, Vietnam, Laos and Thailand, with a special participant from France. The exhibition, which represented cross-currents in contemporary art-making, proved to be a success and left a significant mark in the cultural life of Vietnam.

In late 2009, curator Susan Lin and foremost Chinese ink painting artist Chen Yung-Mo from Taiwan hosted Top of the World: Asia Art Link Exhibition held at Taipei 101 Observatory, juxtaposing Art in Village: Bamboo Village International Art Workshop in Yilan County, Taiwan reinforcing it as an emerging avenue and venue for artists to explore the diversity of culture and visual languages that have continued to evolve.

This year, the Asia Art Link 2010 Philippine Committee spearheaded by artists Jeho Bitancor, Salvador Ching, Dennis Gonzales, Norman Dreo, Roen Capule, Ruel Caasi, Salvador Convocar and Noel Pama takes pride in hosting the event. The exhibition will also feature established Filipino artists Karen Flores, Ramon Orlina, Junyee, Pandy Aviado, Fil Delacruz, Raul Isidro and Leonardo Aguinaldo representing the diversity of Filipino artistic expression from different generations. About 50 artists have been invited from nine Pacific Rim nations including Singapore, Korea, and Denmark and the scope of the event includes a wider array of expressions from painting to sculpture, performance art and multi-media installation.

Asia Art Link 2010 PILIPINAS gathers artists from INDONESIA: Nurkholis, Hadi Soesanto, Rommy Iskandar, Hardiana, Eddy Sulistyo, Suryo Hardihandoyo, I Made Arya Palguna, Ferry Gabriel; from MALAYSIA: Ng Bee, Long Thien Shih, Tang Yeok Khang, Cheong Kiet Cheng, Hoo Kiew Hang, Tiong Chai Heing, Chen Yen Peng, Cencis Ng; from TAIWAN: Susan Lin, Chen Yung-Mo, from THAILAND: Jintana Piamsiri, Paramat Lueng-On, Winai Prabpripoo; from VIETNAM: Trinh Tuan, Nguyen Ngoc Phuong, Tran Nhat Thang, Bang Si Truc, Nguyen Minh Phuoc, Nguyen Van Cuong, Nguyen Tran Cuong; from SINGAPORE: Fern Min Eng with special participation of Christian Moeller Nielsen from DENMARK.

As we continue to evolve, it is important to note that Asia Art Link must be perceived not only as a gathering, but in the light of artists and communities renewing ties and establishing grounds to define commonalities and differences - a healthy dialogue for growth and understanding, as we try to assert ourselves in the still larger art community and world culture.
