"The anthology edited by Nora Taylor and Boreth Ly emerges at a time when Southeast
Asian contemporary art is gaining increasing visibility on the global art stage. . . . This volume serves as a reflective and critical body of essays that illuminates ways in which these developments may be questioned and understood."―Pamela Nguyen Corey, Journal of Asian Studies (May 2013)
"This collection of brilliant, multidisciplinary essays offers entry points and perspectives from which we can begin to appreciate the shared attributes and histories of Southeast Asian art. Rich with information, these essays and their multifaceted views of art practices, curatorship, ideologies, and infrastructures will be indispensable for an in-depth understanding of the ASEAN Community."― Professor Dr. Aplnan Poshyananda, Deputy Secretary-General, Ministry of Culture, Thailand
"In its scope and range of intellectual interests, this volume is nothing short of pathbreaklng in its approach to contemporary art in Southeast Asia, one of the most exdtlng fields of inquiry today. Of special interest is the broad methodological relevance of this volume to readers concerned with anthropology, art history, visual culture, religious studies, and political sclence. I have no doubt that this volume will be a seminal touchstone upon which future studies of contemporary art in Southeast Asia will be based. Provocative in the best sense of the word, this collection of essays does much to complicate our ever-evolvlng sense of what 'contemporary art' means."―Professor Joan Kee, History of Art, University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, coeditor of Contemporaneity and Art In Southeast Asia
