Southeast Asian art has a unique aesthetic that blends indigenous motifs with artistic styles and subject matter introduced by seafaring merchants, primarily from India and Sri Lanka. Dr. Gardner Harris will explore the evolution of Southeast Asian art, focusing on the intersections of ‘internal’ and ‘external’ artistic styles.
