Southeast Asian Contemporary Art Now

Southeast Asian Contemporary Art Now
Southeast Asia is the last frontier in contemporary art and one of the
least known art scenes today because its diversity and outstretched
territory make it difficult to access, analyse and assess.
Five years of travel, research and interviews have enabled the author
to give an extensive overview of the cutting-edge art practices in the
region, including painting, sculpture, installation, video, photography
and performance. An in-depth essay covers the situation of the art
scenes in the six selected countries and situates Southeast Asian
Contemporary Art in a global context.
Faithful to his signature method, the author has interviewed around
200 artists to come up with a final selection of 23. These artists have
been selected on the perceived quality of content and emotion that are
combined with the appropriate raw materials and the latest technology
in their artworks. It has been an explicit objective to cover most of the
media used by the artists from the region.
Vivid discussions with artists, art critics, gallery owners and leading
collectors have allowed the author to share and fine-tune his opinions.
Final artworks have been selected in collaboration with the artists, and
the interaction with them has enabled the author to unlock some of
the clues that allow the reader to better understand the content.
Outstanding digital technology applied to top-class high resolution
images has produced a unique presentation of an anthology of 91
artworks from private collections all over the world.
