    Dear Kate,

    I work with Ernst & Young in India and have been visiting your website frequently over the past few months. I find it to be an invaluable resource of information about the Asian Art Market and very useful in some of the art market research that I have been doing. I like the way information is segregated into categories and is made easy to browse through. Additionally, some of the perspectives represented here are truly unique and are a pleasure to read.

    I wish you and your team the very best of luck. Keep up the good work.

    Hello everyone!
    My name is Cintia and I’m brazilian but i grew up in Macau-China.

    I was just googling it around about short couses when this website came up to me!

    Really amazed how there are people out there concerned and focused on the Asian Art culture.
    I live in Macau’ China- its a very touristic city due to its cultural transition, macau is all about casinos and money.
    Arts its growing up however, still very limited.

    Currently studing year 3 of Design, however, due to its limitations, I am contantly seeking for opportunities outside and now particullary in Asia.

    I am interested in doing a One’month course somewhere in Asia since there is a foundation here offering scholarships for short courses.
    Would any one know anything about short courses during the month of February. No specific design area, however if there was something do to with textiles or communication design would be more than great!

    Also, if this website is interested in having a correspondant located here I would be ver please to do it!

    Thanks everyone!!

    Hi, I do not know alot about Asian Art, but was hoping you may be able to help me with something. I have recently purchased two Qu Jianxiong abstract paintings from his ex wife’s, now ex husband’s in Americas collection. I was hoping to find out more about the artist since knowledge of him in America is very limited, I can send pictures if you are interested. Thanks, Greetings from America!

  12. Would like to inform you all of Other Asias – a Pan-Asian artist initiative based in Lahore (Pakistan) Dhaka (Bangladesh) and London (UK)

    Other Asias: Transnational Contemporary Art Currents
    ‘Should we train our imagination to allow ‘Asia’ to emerge as a continent?’ (Gayatri Spivak, 2008)

    Other Asias is an ambitious artist-led initiative that challenges contemporary navigations of Asia as region, as potentiality, as memory, as imagination and investigation through an arena of fluid exhibitionary structures. Our organisation activates chains of exhibitions, film screenings, fictions, forums, performance, plays, walks and talks, historical revisions, reading circles, archives, taxonomies, political vocabularies, public education and transnational circulation.

    Formed in late 2008, Other Asias is an open assemblage of cultural practitioners that weaves together reanimated alliances and counter-cartographies. We were dismayed by the systematic mediocrity of the first Asian Arts Triennial held in Manchester 2008, the ossification of official “cross-cultural” departments and new internationalism, the corporate/ NGO strategies of organisations like Asia House and the current superficial commercial booms of Eastern economies.

    Other Asias is a grass roots networking organisation that aims to provide up-coming creatives a platform and portal for multi-poplar orbits of exchange. Every current is an ever-flowing investigation, configuring a dynamic new team of visiting artists and writers – generating transformations across localities, communities and continents.

  13. On August 1, the melting of Earth’s ice will be illustrated by an interactive public art event in NYC.
    People will be invited into an ice environment, created in New York’s Union Square Park by artist Chin Chih Yang. Encouraged to sit on giant blocks of ice, the melting caused by the warmth of the participants’ bodies, will trigger increasingly frantic emergency lights embedded within the ice, making it glow in alarm—a simple yet forceful reminder of how human activity is hastening the melting of the world’s ice caps. 11a.m-7p.m at Union Square Park near 14th St. FREE

    Dear makers/editors of this website,

    thank you for sharing your information about art. I am sure that it has been, and continues to be an invauable resource for those with an interest in the arts, or those within artistic communities who want fresh news about what’s what and who’s who.

    However, i feel that you could retain and possibly attract more readers–simply by changing the layout and presentation of your website. Its grey and blue palette does not make for pleasurable reading. Even more so as a website that dedicates itself to the arts, should its layout not be treated with an artistic eye as well?

    It is my personal opinion that a simple font (black arial even) on a clean white background will allow any images that you have included in your updates to ‘pop’–art after all is about visual aesthetic. I am a young person, so perhaps my perspective is tampered by things that you might consider ‘frivolous’ and ‘unimportant’-such as website design. I do not mean to impose, so perhaps you could do a quick reader’s poll about how everyone feels about the design.

    I do know that, for a young reader (18) like me, a fresher, cleaner design will be an inevitable deciding factor in me not only bookmarking your page, but returning to it often.

    Thank you very much for your time.

      Thanks for leaving your comments and don’t be shy about being 18 because actually we wholeheartedly agree with you. We started this blog as art enthusiasts but with limited technical knowledge and severely limited funds. We would love to have a site which is a more pleasurable aesthetic experience for readers. Unfortunately we set up on a blog with a free theme from a limited choice. If we change the platform we will lose our google ranking and in-coming links. If there is any reader who would be able to help us with improving the look of the site as it is, do contact us at kate at artradarasia dot com. We are not able to pay at this stage but we can promote your services with a link on the site. In the meantime Jia we have tried to remove some of the corporate blue and hope this is a step in the right direction until we can do a redesign.
