SOUTHEAST OF NOW: Directions in Contemporary and Modern Art in Asia is a scholarly journal on art and visual culture, published online and in print twice yearly by NUS Press, National University of Singapore. 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. Articles are refereed by professional peers. Inquiries may be submitted to southeastofnow [at]

This journal is open access thanks to the generous support of the Chen Chong Swee Asian Arts Programme at Yale-NUS College and the Foundation for Arts Initiatives.
