PCAN shares space with kindred projects that speak to the concerns of Philippine art and contemporary culture, broadly conceived. This enables PCAN to expand its discursive reach and solidarity with similar initiatives within the country and elsewhere. It also offers another platform to circulate textual production by peers beyond the circuits of traditional publishers, academe, and exhibition industry. 

Interlaced Journeys

Diaspora and the Contemporary in Southeast Asian Art

Edited by Patrick D. Flores & Loredana Pazzini-Paracciani

INTERLACED JOURNEYS | Diaspora and the Contemporary in Southeast Asian Art brings together the work of some of the most engaging art historians and curators from Southeast Asia and beyond that explores the notion of diaspora in contemporary visual culture. Regional attention on this particular condition of movement and resettlement has often been confined to sociological studies, while the place of diaspora in Southeast Asian contemporary art remains mostly unexplored. This is the first anthology to examine the subject from the complex perspective of artistic and curatorial practice as it attempts to propose multiple narratives of diaspora in relation to a range of articulations in the contemporary context.
