Preface

Almanac 2010

For more than 15 years, ArtAsiaPacific has tracked the shifting topography of contemporary art from Asia, the Pacific and the Middle East. In 2005, the magazine’s editors decided to produce a permanent record of the art scene in the 67 countries and territories of our geographical footprint—some basking in the limelight and others laboring for support and acknowledgment.
