This is the catalogue for exhibition of the same name. "This exhibition arises out of a new space which has emerged within contemporary practice in Australia over the past decade. It is a space characterised by complex interchanges between Australia and the many cultures of the Asia-Pacific region manifested across governmental, commercial and cultural spheres. Recent increased artistic dialogue between the regions has led to exciting and important opportunities for exchange, both on personal and collective levels. This activity has enabled a blurring of borders as well as greater recognition of the ongoing presences of Asian cultural practices within Australian art itself. Above and Beyond highlights these influences by bringing together artists from several generations, artistic and philosophical positions, ethnic and cultural backgrounds, working in different media, and with varying degrees of involvement with Asia." (Excerpt from the catalogue)
