Yi Shu Journal 52
The texts in Yishu 52 examine artist-initiated spaces, projects, and collectives in China, Vietnam, the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, and India. Through these examples we learn about different histories, cultural contexts, existing art infrastructures, and how artists are creating innovative institutional models within them. While we were unable to include every country within this region of Asia, the ones we selected have, for the most part, lesser-known histories within the broader international realm, and it is our aim that these texts will contribute to an increased understanding of the past, present, and future of artist initiatives within Asia and to provide a forum for these various nations to see themselves in relationship to each other.

Narratives in Malaysian Art
Narratives in Malaysian Art is publishing initiative in four volumes, in English and Bahasa, that looks at the early 1940s, or pre-Merdeka period, all the way through to today. Project is initiated by Rogue Art founders Beverly Young, Adeline Oii, and Rachel Ng in Kuala Lumpur. This publishing initiative grew out of the lack of discourse in contemporary Malaysian art as well as the lack of publications relating to it.

Past Peripheral: Curation in South East Asia by Partick Flores
This study of the development and potentials of curation (ie. the presentation and development of art collections and their appreciation) looks at recent curatorial activities and thought in Indonesia and Thailand in the context of art developments in Southeast Asia.

Studio Bibliotheque (2007-2011 selection)
In addressing its aim to facilitate experiments in making, writing, curating and publishing, Studio Bibliothèque, founded by Michael Lee, places heavy emphasis on academic research, analysis, presentation, documentation and distribution. The genres of publications include exhibition brochures, catalogues, magazine, companion documentation and anthologies:
