This publication accompanies the exhibition 'TECTONIC' organised by the Moving Museum from March to May 2013 at the Dubai International Financial Centre, Dubai.

'TECTONIC brings together a diverse pool of artists working seamlessly across mediums and disciplines, contextualizing their approaches and identifying the new direction of art in a climate of rapid change, capturing the sense of urgency that is redefining contemporary art and laying the groundwork for its future. The approximately 300 multimedia artworks range from installation, performances, sculpture, video, sound, digital and painting will be on show in a 15,000 square foot venue at the DIFC. Working closely with the artists over the past year, The Moving Museum has developed solo presentations for each artist that offers a comprehensive snapshot of their practice as a whole.

The exhibition is set against the backdrop of Dubai. Born out of the aspirations of the new century, the city has undergone its own tectonic transformation, establishing itself as an important cultural hub in the Middle East, while experiencing mammoth fluctuations in financial fortunes, landscape and population growth within a short period of time. TECTONIC’s presence in Dubai allows for a global gathering of compatible concerns that aims to raise questions, spark dialogues and respond to the particularities of a new environment.' - from organiser's website.

This publication stands as not only a documentation of the exhibition but extends to become an in-depth analysis of the 24 artists represented. It features a conversation between Dubai's cultural worker and the founders of The Moving Museum, overviews of the artists' practices, interviews and essays.

Please note that only participating artists of Asian descent are listed.
