Some of Southeast Asia's most acclaimed performance artists will be the subject of a new exhibition at the Arts Centre Melbourne. Running from February 11 through to May 21 as part of the inaugural Asia TOPA , Political Acts: Pioneers of Performance Art in Southeast Asia will showcase the work of preeminent artists from Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Cambodia, Myanmar, Vietnam and beyond.

Featuring a mix of photographs, installations and films, the art in Political Acts acknowledges the cultural tradition of performance within the region. It also explores a wide range of social, political and environmental issues facing both Southeast Asia and the world at-large, from ethnic identity to state-sponsored violence. The free exhibition can be found in Gallery One at the Arts Centre and is open daily.
