About This Book

This publication is published in conjunction with the second edition of the Asian Art Museum Directors' Forum (AAMDF), held in 2007 at the Singapore Art Museum. The AAMDF was inaugurated in Beijing to recognise the important role of art museums in the development of culture, and to underscore the importance of interactions and collaborations among Asian art museums for the advancement of art and museums in Asia. The past two decades has seen a growing visibility of Asian contemporary art and a proliferation of international platforms, exhibitions and institutions in the region. Art has become an immense, internationalised industry, and public museums have to rethink the fundamentals of their roles and futures. What is the relationship between the art museum, mega-exhibitions and the cities that house them? This edition of the AAMDF attempts to address these issues and more. The publication is a compilation of the presentations made at the forum, which was attended by museum directors and art professionals from 28 institutions and across 14 countries.
