About Yishu 56:

The Biennial Foundation is grateful to Yishu for devoting an entire issue to the World Biennial Forum No 1.

Yishu 56 pays attention to a selection of the case studies in the World Biennial Forum No 1, focusing on the Asia Pacific region, architecture and design, emergent and alternative biennials, biennials in South Korea, and “Asia” and its margins. Yishu 56 represents not only some of the more established biennials in Asia, but also newer models that may be overlooked due to an emphasis on the local or access to only a modest means of production. The issue also includes extensive visual material.

Yishu: Journal of Contemporary Chinese Art is the first English language journal to focus on Chinese contemporary art and culture. Each bi-monthly issue features scholarly essays on topical issues, interviews with artists and curators, conference proceedings, and critical commentary on exhibitions and books.

Yishu 56 (May/ June 2013 Issue, Volume 12, Number 3) can be ordered at: http://yishu-online.com/
