Much has changed in Asia and the world since the founding of The Asia Foundation in 1954. Guided by a vision for a peaceful, just and thriving Asia, we are marking our 60th anniversary with a year-long global conversation on critical issues facing the region today.
As part of the global dialogue, the Foundation has organized a photography exhibition, Critical Issues Facing Asia: Marking 60 Years. The exhibit features 14 international photographers and incredible imagery of the six critical issues the Foundation is actively addressing, including: lack of transparency and accountability in government; persistent poverty and rising income inequality; exclusion of women from political and economic life; ethnic and religious conflict; access to justice and human rights; disaster management, climate change, and water resource management.
The evening features an artist reception and a conversation behind the striking moments with The Asia Foundation photographer Ted Alcorn and Alastair Gee, San Francisco-based correspondent of Monocle, a global magazine on international affairs.
