The recent cross-cultural turn in art history has opened up the eighteenth-century world in a variety of productive new ways. Yet the view of this global eighteenth century is still often that of Europe and North America looking East, rather than considering broader Asia’s view of contact among its many states and kingdoms spread out along the continent and across oceans. Trade, exploration, and diplomacy linked the region stretching from East Asia through Southeast Asia, around India, and across the Indian Ocean to the Middle East in ways that brought exotic goods from one end of this vast area to another. A few notable cases even forbade most or all Europeans from entering the country, choosing to strengthen their connections to their neighbors – even thousands of miles away across the seas – rather than to the Westerners who arrived in their harbors. Artists and artisans traveled between courts and ports; treasures and useful decorative objects brought far-flung nations into everyday contact; and imitations of the foreign competed with authentic imported goods in markets around the Eastern Hemisphere. The result is a complex and understudied area of cross-cultural contact that reveals the true depths of interaction across the Asian continent that began long before European arrival and continues today.
“East-Southeast” seeks to reorient the compass of global art history by considering intra-Asian artistic exchange during the long eighteenth century. Articles should address some area of art resulting from contact between the Asian non-west, stretching from Western Asia across
Central Asia to East Asia, and down through South Asia and Southeast Asia.
