About This Book

The Collectors Show brings together notable works of Asian contemporary art from private collections around the world. A tribute to the art patrons of today, the exhibition offers an insight into the breadth and remarkable richness of private art collections, and the unique and highly personal visions and passions that shape them. This edition of The Collectors Show is titled Chimera, a deliberately evocative word that references both the mythological hybrid monster and the idea of an illusion, fantasy, or delusion. The exhibition presents contemporary art in all its various and hybrid forms, from painting to sculpture, to new media and interactive multi-media. The works selected eschew conventional spectacle in favour of a reflection on vision and visuality, offering visually seductive surfaces tinged with undercurrents of anxiety. These artworks remind us of the spectres of our age - questions and issues that continue to haunt us and test our judgement at every turn and corner of our new millennium.
