SOUTHEAST OF NOW: Directions in Contemporary and Modern Art in Asia  is a peer-reviewed, scholarly journal co-founded by a collective of scholars and curators including Isabel Ching, Thanavi Chotpradit, Brigitta Isabella, Vera Mey, Roger Nelson, Simon Soon, Vuth Lyno and June Yap.

One of the great challenges of our time is to make sense of the world on a global scale, even while facing ever more urgent concerns at various local levels. While artists, curators, critics, and scholars of art have embraced this challenge for some time now, the global discourse of contemporary and modern art remains stubbornly asymmetrical, with many contexts for discussion oriented to the North and the West, and also to the new and the now.

SOUTHEAST OF NOW: Directions in Contemporary and Modern Art in Asia was established with the aim of looking and listening closely to the discursive spaces in, from, and around the region we refer to as Southeast Asia, from an historical perspective.
