This is the catalogue of the 1st Fukuoka Asian Art Triennale, held in 1999 as a continuation of the 'Asian Art Show' which was held almost every five years since 1979. Under the theme 'Communication: Channels for Hope', this exhibition concentrates on artists who are interested in human relationships not only with the people who are close to them but in the society to which they belong, and who try to pioneer a creative channel for communication by using their original art expression.
Essays written by specialists in the field of contemporary art from the respective counrties complement our understanding of the development of art in these countries. Biographical information of the artists are provided.
The Faculty of Plastic Arts, Royal University of Fine Arts, Cambodia is one of the participants.
