Catalogue published on the occasion of the touring exhibition 'Roundabout' featuring works from the 'Roundaboutº' Collection at the City Gallery Wellington, New Zealand from September 2010 to January 2011, and later travelling to the Tel Aviv Museum of Art from October 2011 to April 2012.

'Roundaboutº explores the possibilities of artistic exchanges between geographically separated cultures and of different traditions and languages. This full-color catalog designed by award-winning graphic designer Paul Sahre, features the work of 108 artists from around the world, including New Zealand, Australia, Japan, South Korea, China, India, Bhutan, Tibet and Thailand. It also includes four scholarly essays by Nicholas Thomas, Rupert Richard Arrowsmith, Don J. Cohn and Marisa Mazria-Katz, as well as an interview with Roundabout collector David Teplitzky. Robert Thurman, Professor of Indo-Tibetan Buddhist Studies at Columbia University, contributes a special foreword.' - from publisher's website

'I am reminded daily of the differences that make each of my children unique, but also the similarities that they share. I consider the artists of Roundabout similarly, where despite their differences they exists as part of a general conversation that radiates worldwide, where people talk about concerns that are local and specific to them, but when taken out of their context, they apply to all of us no matter where you are from or what spiritual philosophy you may ascribe to.' - excerpt from the interview with David Teplitzky by Elaine W. Ng
