SEA PROJECT: Contemporary Art from Southeast Asia 1980s to Now

The curatorial team for the exhibition consists not only of the Japanese curators from the two museums but also four Southeast Asian curators of the recent generation—those born after the 1980s—to help provide a deeper understanding required for an exhibition of such a wide theme. The curators had a preliminary research trip to Laos.
