This article presents various tendencies in contemporary artistic practice in Asia that responds to the political implications of the ecological. It maps out certain co-ordinates of practice in the region that is invested in the problematic of ecology and the place of the aesthetic in that procedure. Such an effort proposes trajectories of intervention in the political gesture of the cultivation of land; the re-intuition of the city as an ethnoscape within a planet in peril; the conjuncture of the multispecies zone; the gathering of art in processual platforms not necessarily confined to the exhibitionary; and the potential of craft as a vector of the tropic and the social.
