Art & Trousers

An anthology of writings by cultural historian David Elliott, Art & Trousers presents a panoramic view of contemporary art from across Asia, focusing on the impacts of invention, exchange, colonisation, politics, social development and gender.

An illustrated collection of more than thirty essays and 640 color images, Art & Trousers moves deftly between regional analysis, portraits of individual artists, and a metaphorical history of trousers.

David Elliott spotlights the practice of many leading global artists of the early twenty-first century, including Hiroshi Sugimoto, Cai Guo-Qiang, Ai Weiwei, Xu Bing, Rashid Rana, Bharti Kher, Makoto Aida, Chatchai Puipia, and Yeesookyung, among many others. Art & Trousers offers insight into the development of a key curatorial practice for our times.
