In the first panel, Sarena Abdullah, Pamela Nguyen Corey, Chương-Đài Võ, and Wong Binghao share their experiences researching specific artists, highlighting methodological challenges in their research and teaching. In the second panel, Gridthiya Gaweewong, Eileen Legaspi Ramirez, Yvonne Low, and Grace Samboh explore art exhibitions and projects as vehicles for increasing the visibility of women artists in Southeast Asia, including a wave of group shows that emerged following
the UN’s Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing in 1995.
The panels are part of “The Flow of History: Southeast Asian Women Artists,” a research programme led by AWARE with Asia Art Archive, which highlights the work of women artists of Southeast Asia from the eighteenth century to today. Inspired by Indonesian poet Toeti Heraty (1933–2021)—who in “The Portrait of a Woman 1938” signalled the important work of memory—the
project poses transversal historical questions when considering gender issues in the biographies and practices of women artists in Southeast Asia born between 1700 and 1973, embracing the diversity of the region and its particular sociopolitical dynamics during such pivotal stages as decolonisation. AWARE and Asia Art Archive are working with an advisory committee—whose members will be the speakers of this first event—to increase the visibility of women and femme-identified artists by
publishing research and biographies on women artists, identifying relevant archives, and organising events that highlight their contributions.

AWARE: Archives of Women Artists, Research and Exhibitions is a non-profit organisation founded in 2014. Faced with the under-representation of women in the art world, AWARE’s aim is to balance out the presence of these women artists, these “forgotten figures of art history,” in order to improve their visibility through the sharing of free access resources.
