The eight artworks by Southeast Asian artists will be featured in the “Nucleo Storico” section of the Main Exhibition in a sub-section entitled “Portraits”, which expands the history of modernism beyond Europe and North America by focusing on stories from the Global South, including artists whose trajectories took them across continents and contexts over the tumultuous course of the 20th century.
