Launched in 2010, and edited by Thomas Lawson, East of Borneo presents traditional art writing in all its variations—from personal to academic, poetic to theoretical—while providing a multimedia platform that highlights connections and encourages new lines of thought, research and consideration, as well as expanded forms of writing. 

The project also includes an imprint of highly focused books that reconsider neglected material and provocative themes within a contemporary context. With its robust web architecture and non-hierarchical editorial approach, East of Borneo reflects the sprawling, rhizomatic nature of Los Angeles as well as the broader, international art world.
