This event has ended.
My Body, Your Body, Their Body is the traveling exhibition of “The Reference Asia: Art Book Library 2019.” This exhibition will introduce 125 artbooks that the five book curators from China, Taiwan, Korea, Singapore, and Japan have chosen, under the theme of body interpreted in its most broadened ways including portrait, family, gender, community, which will be exhibited together with the photographic works by seven artists whose books have been selected.
The title of this exhibition was inspired from the culture that the word they/them/their are commonly used in the minority communities as third-person pronouns, instead of the stereotypical gender definitions with only the division of him/her.
The perspectives towards our bodies seem as they continue to evolve based on various conceptions towards families, genders, communities, and other interpretations. We warmly welcome all to this occasion where the works by six Japanese and one Korean photographer, as well as 125 artbooks selected by five book curators across Asia, will all gather and be exhibited as one.
