New Issue of Southeast of Now


The latest issue of Southeast of Now is now available online.


Southeast of Now 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.


Many Cornell SEAP graduate students, professors, and alumnae contributed both to the essays, the roundtable, and the responses.


All issues are free to read online via Open Access, thanks to generous grants from the Chen Chong Swee Asian Arts Programme at Yale-NUS College and the Foundation for Arts Initiatives.
