SPIRIT OF THE TIME - South East Asian Contemporary Art


According to Christies Auction House, Art from Southeast Asia has seen an explosive growth in interest among collectors.

Yet, the art created in this fascinating region is far from unified in its form and conceptual ethos. What unifies them is that the art produced in this region is today extremely lucrative to the collector. Why? Is it merely a question of investors catching an upswing? Or is it about works of art bearing expressions of fascinating cultural themes? Each Southeast Asian country, from modern times on, has had to undergo great change and upheavals in social, spiritual and political terms.

This series investigates how each cultures individual and shared histories, coupled with a booming art market, have influenced the regions visual artists.
