"i have often been asked what it is like to be born a woman in india, and whether the overt and subverted displays of male power encountered each day in almost all areas of life wears me down. my answer is always that i view myself as empowered. i see this as a precious inheritance not to be squandered, and therefore accept the challenge to confront and resist, when necessary, the attempts made by external forces that target and infringe upon my territory of equality and freedom."—rekha rodwittiya, cover artist for artasiapacific issue 17.
in light of the recent s****l harassment scandals surfacing in the art world, artasiapacific asked our female cover artists about their own experiences and what we can do to dismantle patriarchy. to read rodwittiya's full statement as well as others, check out the articles at http://bit.ly/aapstatements1 and http://bit.ly/aapstatementsii

Proud to announce the next guest curator in the monthly online exhibitions, @doubleeyolk , an artist collective based in newcastle interested in how students become dissociated from the contemporary art scene when transitioning out of university, in collaboration with women artists of the north east library, a temporary research project initiated by @hargent and @_wrenknee_ with an aim to build a collection of artefacts from female artists working in the north east of england, creating a usable resource that contributes to the history of women artists. the month long exhibition will be made up of four different shows and a podcast, one exhibition going live each week, featuring work from the females artists working within the double yolk collective alongside artworks previously contributed to the library. once the exhibitions end they will be archived and contribution to the library. go to www.isthisitisthisit.com/double-yolk to read their curator profile before the first exhibition and the podcast goes live this wednesday! #guestcurator#curator#art#womenartists#femaleartists#soundart#sound#videoart#artist#photography#widget#painting#digital#exhibition#onlineexhibition#onlineart#digitalcurator
