Asia Pacific Arts is an online magazine that covers the dynamic worlds of Asian and Asian American arts and entertainment.
Everywhere you look – television, music, film, fashion – the direction of international art and culture faces east. With hundreds of thousands of readers worldwide, Asia Pacific Arts takes a long hard look at just what it means for Asian high and pop cultures to enter the global consciousness and multinational marketplace.
APA features video interviews, music clips, and other multimedia content that add personality to analysis. As journalists, APA writers ask why, how, when, and where Asian and Asian American arts have captured the imagination of fans at home and abroad. As critics, they analyze what this means for the future of Asian aesthetics and expression.
Asia Pacific Arts is published by the USC US-China Institute in cooperation with the USC East Asian Studies Center and the Annenberg School of Communication and Journalism. The magazine began in 2003 as part of Tom Plate's Asia Pacific Media Network. It soon moved to the UCLA Asia Institute, where it was published until September 2009. The UCLA archives can be found here.
