Southeast Asia Art Watch is a series of country-specific talks focused on both developed and emerging art scenes in the region.

Malaysia’s cultural landscape has boomed in recent years, with a number of newly inaugurated galleries, independent spaces and cultural agencies enlivening the contemporary art scene in Kuala Lumpur. Smaller art scenes have also developed in cities such as Penang, Ipoh and Kota Kinabalu, and the diffuse, multi-nodal terrain of Malaysian contemporary art deserves closer examination: what, who, and how? Panellists, who hail from a diverse range of backgrounds, interests and expertise, will discuss these questions and more.
