Southeast of Now: Directions in Contemporary and Modern Art in Asia

Southeast of Now: Directions in Contemporary and Modern Art in Asia aims to look and listen closely to the discursive spaces of art in, from, and around the region that is referred to as Southeast Asia, from a historical perspective.

The journal presents a necessarily diverse range of perspectives not only on the contemporary and modern art of Southeast Asia, but indeed of the region itself: its borders, its identity, its efficacy, and its limitations as a geographical marker and a conceptual category. As such, the journal is defined by a commitment to the need for and importance of rigorous discussion, of the contemporary and modern art of the domain that lies south of China, east of India, and north of Australia.

The journal will be published twice a year (March and October). Enjoy free previews of Vol. 1, No. 1 (March 2017) and Vol. 1, No. 2 (October 2017) via Project MUSE.  Subsequent issues from Vol. 2, No. 1 (March 2018) will be available upon subscription. The subscription form is availabe here.
