This volume is compiled and introduced by the editors of ART AsiaPacific, a journal dedicated to the contemporary visual arts of the Asian and Pacific regions.

'The many feminisms of the Asian world are introduced in this series of essays on contemporary women artists written by art critics and historians from the region. The relevance of the western feminist model is negotiated and new perspectives on gender issues are revealed through the experiences of women from China, Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japan, India, Philippines, Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam and Indonesia. 

Prominent women painters, sculptors, photographers, printmakers, installation and performance artists are profiled with more than one hundred colour reproductions testifying to the quality and vitality of their art.' —extracted from the front flap
