Title: Intersecting Histories: Contemporary Turns in Southeast Asian Art
Description: This publication is produced to accompany the exhibition of the same title, marking the opening of the ADM Gallery, School of Art, Design, and Media at the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore. 

Featuring 37 artworks by 28 artists from a range of Southeast Asian countries, the exhibition consists of important works that mark beginnings of the contemporary in the region's art, set the terms in which the contemporary is to be developed in the region, and connect this art globally.

There is a strong historical interest prevalent in the exhibition, which is to discern circumstances in which a work is produced and received, and in ways in which one work's history can be read as intersecting with those of others. The exhibition thus proposes a method to see the contemporary in Southeast Asian art historically, and along multiple ways.
