Southeast Asia Art Watch is a series of country-specific talks focused on both developed and emerging art scenes in the region.

This talk takes a closer look at one of the region’s most dynamic economies – and one of the most vibrant epicentres of contemporary art today. With three biennales taking place for the first time in the country last year and MAIIAM Museum in Chiang Mai recently opening its doors, the resurgence of interest in Thailand’s contemporary art scene coincides with major socio-political shifts in the country. This panel addresses these significant changes, as well as their relationship with and impact on the country’s art ecosystem.

Featuring:
Korakrit Arunanondchai, Artist
Kittima Chareeprasit, Curator of MAIIAM Museum
Dusadee Huntrakul, Artist
 
Moderated by Gregory Galligan, Director of Thai Art Archives
