Student Study Trip to Paris 2015

In May 2015 Ashley Thompson, Christian Luczanits and Simone Green led 10 MA students from the Department of the History of Art and Archaeology on a fantastic exploration of Southeast Asian art museum and archival research collections in Paris. The group enjoyed expert tours by scholars and curators at the Musée Guimet des Arts Asiatiques, the Ecole Française d’Extrême-Orient, and the Quai Branly Museum, as well as the temporary ‘Archipel Secret’ exhibition of contemporary Southeast Asian art at the Palais de Tokyo. They also enjoyed ‘Monologue,’ a video installation by Cambodian artist Vandy Ratana at the Jeu de Paume, meeting scholars from the Institut National des Langues et Civilisations Orientales, and simply being together for a full two days of thinking and discussing Southeast Art!
