This book is published in conjunction with 'The River Project', a key project of the Upper Georges River Catchment Urban Sustainability Initiative held from August to October 2010. Curated by Huangfu Binghui and directed by Lisa Havilah, the project considers the Upper Georges River that runs through south west Sydney within the larger context of river systems of Asia and the Pacific by bringing together artists from Australia, China, India, Korea, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines and Vietnam whose work explores river systems. From the Yangtze, Mekong and Ganges to the Han, Sepik and Upper Georges, river systems reflect our interconnectedness, our fragility and our history.

Please note that only names of artists of Asian descent are listed below. Artist biographies included.
