Southeast Asian art scene inspires Japan's creators

Contemporary curators, artists keen on cross-border collaboration

An exhibition of contemporary art titled "Sindikat Campursari" was held in Jakarta early this year.

TOKYO -- The kaleidoscope of cultures and traditions that comprise Southeast Asia appear to be inspiring a number of Japanese artists and curators, who are helping to exhibit the region's contemporary art in cross-border collaborations.

The "Sindikat Campurari" group exhibition held earlier this year in Jakarta is an example of this trend, with six curators from Japan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam and Thailand taking part.
