We live in an age of the “glocal”, where the simultaneity of global imperatives and local realities manifests as tensions between two often competing and contradictory systems. The condition of glocality shapes much of contemporary art production, with local identity often seen as a determinant of aesthetics, concerns and imperatives. With contemporary artists increasingly playing multiple roles in local infrastructures and global ecologies, this panel considers the various models of art production, circulation and display both in Southeast Asia and internationally.
