After Darkness: Southeast Asian Art in the Wake of History considers how contemporary art from societies in transition may be read as an expression of the ambiguous and sometimes contentious relationship between individual artistic practices and sociopolitical context. The exhibition explores the cultural repercussions of political ruptures through sculpture, photography, video, and mixed-media installations by seven contemporary artists and one artist group from three Southeast Asian countries—Indonesia, Myanmar, and Vietnam—whose lives and art practices have intersected with defining historical moments.
