Description

15 Mar 2016, Tue 11:00am - 5:00pm
Seminar Room, Block 43 Malan Road

The workshop will use Indonesia as a framework to discuss the issues of diversity in artistic practices in Southeast Asia. As one of the key players in the region, Indonesia with its cultural diversity and political history could provide a site for addressing the questions of global contemporary versus local contemporary. The workshop will examine the writings of Southeast Asian art that have been shaped by a variety of methodologies that are richly interdisciplinary, despite the lack of comparative methodology. The workshop aims to facilitate a conversation to initiate certain avenues of inquiry or even disagreement in investigating possibilities of comparative framework/s for Southeast Asian art.
