The first three issues of Art Studies reviewed and investigated the conditions for art in Asia since the 1960s through the viewpoints of researchers, curators, artists, and cultural administrators, paying special attention to Southeast Asia. Shifting the focus to the current art scene, this fourth issue takes the form of a 'curators' book'. It is a collection of reports by the curators who participated in 'Condition Report', a collaborative art project developed by young curators from Southeast Asia and Japan from late 2015 to 2017. It assembles the participants' reflections at the close of the project while also serving to examine the ever-changing socio-cultural and artistic contexts and conditions for curatorial activities in the region.
