Art, Identity, and Southeast Asia

Patrick Flores, Professor of Art Studies, University of the Philippines & Curator of Vargas Museum, Manila

26-Nov-20 15:00

Art, Identity, and Southeast Asia

The notion of a Southeast Asian artistic identity is a complicated one, particularly within the context of contemporary art. With 2020 having dealt a huge blow to the arts worldwide, we look at developments and new directions in Southeast Asia: what the challenges are, the current movements, and what the future might hold. To help answer these questions, we speak with Patrick Flores, professor of art studies at the University of the Philippines, and artistic director of the 2019 Singapore Biennale. (Flores is one of the featured speakers at the Gallery Weekend Kuala Lumpur 2020.)
