International Symposium 1999
"Asian Art: Prospects for the Future"

The purpose of this international symposium is to make an overall assessment of the situation in Asian art at the end of the 20th century and discuss its prospects in the 21st century within the increasingly globalizing international art scene, based upon the results of exhibitions of Asian art that have been held in Japan and overseas. A total of 18 people from ten countries (Australia, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Sweden, and Thailand) will serve as panelists, and it is hoped that they will carry out lively discussions from a broad variety of angles. We sincerely hope that you will all come and participate in this perfect opportunity for reconsidering the contemporary art of Asia in 1999.
