About S.E.A. Focus
S.E.A. Focus is a leading showcase and art market hub dedicated to Southeast Asian contemporary art. It aims to bring together a fine curation of established and yet-to-be discovered artistic talents to foster a deeper appreciation of contemporary art and artists in the region.
a world, anew
The curatorial theme of S.E.A. Focus 2023, a world anew, explores the idea of new beginnings and how vast potential can be found in minuscule or humble sources – as the region looks forward to renewed opportunities post-pandemic.
With the most challenging times behind us, we step into a new season where optimism and caution intermingle, and will see some of the most creative expressions, compelling introspection and bold experiments emerging.
Just as how large formations of nature begin with a speck, a seed, or an atom, the potential in the region’s artistic landscape is immense and awaits discovery.
