Introduction

 

This list of exhibitions initiates us to efforts in the region to consolidate materials in the history of art, faceted from the tangents of modernity and the contemporary, within a space of reconsiderations of terms across the field: art, history, art history, region, exhibition, curator, art historian.

First it draws our attention to the breadth of this material through exhibitions that tend to survey the art of a particular locus largely through the procedure of art history. This disciplinary commitment may not be articulated, but the disposition is markedly art historical, regardless of how fraught the methodology may be when refunctioned within productive contingencies.

Second it reflects on this material through problematics that may be referenced by themes. The latter shape the exhibitionary logic, which in turn informs whatever history of art may be generated. It might also be asked if such a situation of art needs to be called art history at all, or if it should be solely confined to this disciplinary precinct. If all this labor, this seriality of exhibitions, cannot be collected under the auspice of art history, how should it be contemplated in time?

Third it leads us to the work of curation and the perspectives through which curators, following their own trajectories of practice and history as well as their relationships with institutions, perform the exhibitionary and art historical potential.

All these questions ask: How do the exhibitionary aesthetic and the discourse on a specific ecology or life world of art become art historical propositions and in the process create the critique of the art historical? How does the curatorial intervene in this schema? And how does the geography of the exhibition inform the production of the curatorial and the art historical?

Note: This Shortlist was produced in conjunction with the symposium Sites of Construction: Exhibitions and the Making of Recent Art History in Asia, 21–23 October 2013. The symposium investigated the implications of exhibitions becoming the primary sites of art historical construction in the region. Organised in four sessions and punctuated by three keynote speeches, the three-day event brought together international scholars, curators, writers, and artists to explore the multiple roles exhibitions play. The present Shortlist, prepared by Patrick Flores, chair of the panel "Exhibition as Historical Proposition" inquires into what historical narratives of modernity, the postcolonial condition, and the global contemporary or cultural affinity, are being proposed by recent exhibitions.
