Pick of the Week

On October 30, a letter decrying our patriarchal society and its hegemonic power structures dictating every aspect of our lives—including the mechanisms of the art world—was circulated online. Five thousand women, including artists, curators, writers and other cultural workers signed the letter. Hoping to shed light on the discomfort and hostility that women artists must navigate in a society shaped by men for men, and to add to the multiple voices that are now speaking out and saying, “no more,” we reached out to the many female artists featured on the cover of ArtAsiaPacific over the years, and asked them if they have ever experienced any form of sexual harassment or sexism in the workplace. They offer their statements and honest thoughts on what we should do to engender change, in support of the women who have bravely come forward. Part one of the blog features contributions by Kim Soun-gui, Pinaree Sanpitak, Wong Wai Yin, Nalini Malani and Au Hoi Lam. Part two includes statements by Rekha Rodwittiya, Arahmaiani, Miwa Yanagi, Mithu Sen and Kunié Sugiura.
