Massive economic and ideological shifts in Asia over the last decades have impacted relations between city and country, between women and men, and between public and private sectors.

This roundtable of curators and culture industry specialists asks how feminist art addresses these changing structures and how gender matters in institutional struggles over representation in galleries, auction houses, museums, and public spaces.
