Over the last two decades, the circulation of contemporary art from Asia in the West has been on the rise. This trend has generated debates about a bubble economy, the privatization of culture, and the growth of exhibitions and museums capitalizing on this moment of global arrival. How have women artists fared in these new market conditions? How have they responded to market inequities by embracing or rejecting various definitions of feminist aesthetics? What new hegemonies, centers, and margins—linguistic, regional, ethnic, racial, class- and gender-based—are created by contemporary culture and market intersections in Asia?
