The 4th Fukuoka Asian Art Triennale was held in commemoration with the 10th anniversary of the Fukuoka Asian Art Museum.

The 4th Fukuoka Asian Art Triennale 

Live and Let Live: Creators of Tomorrow.

23rd September to 23rd November 2009

Chief curator: Raiji Kuroda

This large scale exhibition is one that includes important artists from 21 countries in Asia including Bangladesh, Bhutan, Brunei, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Korea, Laos, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam, Japan. Works exhibited range from paintings, sculptures, video works and installations and a number of art exchange programs such as open studios, workshops, performances and gallery talks added to the interactive aspect of the exhibition. Although small in scale and budget, this event offers glimpses of the Asian contemporary art scene from an Asian curatorial perspective and has proved to attract a rising interest from both the Asian and Western art communities.

The key focus of this interview was to assess the role of Asian biennales and triennales in reflecting the growth of Asian contemporary art from an Asian curatorial perspective.
