"Alison Carroll’s concept for Out of Asia arose from her Interest in the region to our north, its contemporary art and from observing that artists in Australia now, more than ever before, are focusing on the issues of Asia; how these issues relate to us here, how they relate to our European cultural history, and how we in this part of the world share with most of our Asian neighbours the history and experiences of colonialism. The catalogue aims to include a number of different aspects which the viewer/reader may wish to consider. In the essay Dreaming the Lotus: Aesthetic Dialogue with Asia? Professor Annette Hamilton, of the Anthropology department of Macquarie University, Sydney, discusses the wider issues of cross cultural relationships. Alison Carroll gives an art historic context for the work of the artists in this exhibition. Alison also conducted interviews in December 1989 and January 1990 with each of the ten artists involved (Mickey Allan, Tony Clark, Matthys Gerber, Pat Hoffie, Tim Johnson, Geoff Lowe, Fiona MacDonald, Susan Norrie, Robert Owen and Gareth Sansom) to discuss the issue of ,Asia’ In relation to their work and their experience."
