This special issue of British Art Studies, titled “London, Asia, Exhibitions, Histories”, takes as its point of departure the idea that exhibitions provide an important lens through which to explore the entangled art histories of Asia and Britain. This proposition, perhaps uncontroversial in its own right, nonetheless reflects certain intellectual...
Chapter
Through a reflection on the writing, and therefore the fiction, of the art historical text in a post-colonial site like Southeast Asia, the chapter speaks to the anxiety about reconsidering the formation of the global or the making of emergent worlds. It tries to peel the layers off this “nature” in terms of the conceptions of both body and metapho...

Article
The essay probes the context of an aesthetic of disappearance in recent practice in the moving image in the Philippines. This aesthetic is not one of absence but of a marked incidence of loss, in fact, an index of brutal abduction. It focuses on how both the full-length film and the installative video work mediate the idiom of the long take and the...
Article
This article sketches out the implications of certain terms from the field of Southeast Asian discourse that refer in different ways to the notion of the “international.” These include “developmental,” “regionality/regionalist,” “reality/realism,” “Asian-African,” and “exploding galaxy.” These terms enable the local to incline outward or to widen i...
Article
Nora Aunor is enlisted in this speculation as a medium in the register of both the cinema and the transmission of spirit. The key trajectory is the oft-cited film Himala, which opens up a conceptual space for mediumship, the technology of the actress, her biography and corpus of art, and the devotion to her person. The essay constellates a set of t...

With our focus on twenty-first-century art history, we asked John Clark, Professor of Asian Art History, University of Sydney, to convene an email Q-and-A on the topic of world art history. The possibility of such a history has been thrown up in the wake of the seeming decline of the Euro-American art history that dominated twentieth-century thinki...
Article
Fernando Zobel is an important figure in Philippine art history. His influence is wide and deep, from art making to formation of taste and to the production of discourse on iconography and identity. This essay focuses on his role in generating critical texts on the history of art in the Philippines, initiating a much-needed discussion on the catego...
Article
In this rereading of the history of modern art in the Philippines, Lee Aguinaldo is situated within the turns in the engagement of the field with modernity, beginning in the late twenties until the sixties and so scanning the period after the academic romanticism of Fernando Amosolo through the eclectic modernist styles of the Philippine Art Galler...
Article
This paper speaks to the condition of the modern by reflecting on its afterlife in the national and the international and its emergence within the colonial. Through examples cited from Philippine art history, the latter is set up as a fundamental moment of the national and the extension beyond it with its perceived others elsewhere in the internati...
Article
Looking at the legacy of 1970s social realist painting in the Philippines, Patrick D. Flores reflects on the intersection of postcolonial discourse, historical imagination and political art practice.
Article
This article presents various tendencies in contemporary artistic practice in Asia that responds to the political implications of the ecological. It maps out certain co-ordinates of practice in the region that is invested in the problematic of ecology and the place of the aesthetic in that procedure. Such an effort proposes trajectories of interven...
Article
: The article explores the ways in which the discourse and affect of miracle is performed in Philippine cinema, with the view of understanding how it exploits and inevitably corrupts mysticism and spiritual belief. Central to this project is the woman miracle worker, the visionary who is made to bear the exceptional gift of otherworldliness as well...
Article
The essay seeks to initiate discussion on a single artist working in the contemporary world as index of both the form and the economy underlying the practice. I Nyoman Masriadi lives and works in Yogjakarta, Indonesia. His exemplary gains in the international art world through the auction circuit have raised issues about how an art market history s...
Article
This article explores the techniques through which art in Southeast Asia is crafted as a historical narrative. It argues that many of these are informed by the ethnographic, which is mediated in a range of ways as a method and a sensibility, broadly conceived as a reflexive framework. Deployed as a tangent to the art historical, the ethnographic is...
Article
The paper reflects on the tension that the process of sensing a nation brings to the formation of a post-colony in Southeast Asia. The “aesthetic” in this context creates forms of sensibility of the “national,” rendering it present in the world and endowing it with certain identity-effects. On the other hand, it also posits an exceptional singulari...

This sign of the colonial had underwritten the...
Article

The painting is Parisian Life (dated 1892 and measures 57 x 79 cm), a work of the country's foremost colonial painter who brought accla...
