Ph.D. Student in History of Art
My primary research area is the history of modern and contemporary art in Southeast Asia and my dissertation focuses on Islamicate art and visual tradition in the works of artists in Indonesia. I use the approach of the history of movement and circulation of visualities and materialities that were brought by the global network of Islam in the Indian Ocean. My interests include postcolonial theory, ocean studies, comparative modernisms, diaspora, and religious studies. I received a B.F.A. in Sculpture from Faculty of Art and Design, Institut Teknologi Bandung, Indonesia, in 2008 and M.A. in Aesthetics and Sciences of Art from the same institution in 2012.
