Modern Art Asia is a new journal dedicated to the arts of Asia from the eighteenth century to today, presenting graduate research from historical perspectives and international news on Asian art. Combining peer-reviewed articles with insightful commentary and the latest exhibition reviews from international correspondents, Modern Art Asia provides a new forum for exchange between scholars that crosses the boundaries of traditional academic disciplines.
Modern Art Asia invites graduates working on the arts and material cultures of Asia from the eighteenth century to the present to submit previously unpublished papers of 4,500-10,000 words for peer-review. ‘Asia’ is broadly defined to include Central, East, South and Southeast Asia, as well as Asia Pacific. Modern Art Asia aims to take an interdisciplinary and innovative approach to the study of Asia, and will consider papers on media and experiments that stretch the parameters of ‘fine art’.
Submission deadline for the February issue is December 4th. We are also seeking students and journalists interested in becoming regular correspondents or in submitting shorter journalistic pieces.
Word limits: Academic papers: 4,500-10,000 (excl. endnotes) / Correspondence and opinion pieces: 500-1,000 words / Exhibition, book, performance reviews: 500-800 words
