Abdul Abdullah, Aditya Novali, Alfredo and Isabel Aquilizan, Anida Yoeu Ali, Ho Tzu Nyen, Jakkai Siributr, Jun Nguyen-Hatsushiba, Nindityo Adipurnomo, Nipan Oranniwesna, Nontawat Numbenchapol, Pao Houa Her, Paphonsak La-or, Piyarat Piyapongwiwat, Prapat Jiwarangsan, Ryan Villamael, Sawangwongse Yawnghwe, Svay Sareth, and The Maw Naing are among the artists exploring the issues of displacement and hybridity of the region through contemporary art. The show is curated by Loredana Pazzini-Paracciani.

On November 3-4, Thai artist Jakkai will conduct a public workshop that actively engages the audience through the medium of embroidery to revisit past and recent histories of migration and exodus of local communities. This workshop continues the artist’s ongoing commitment to the ethnic minorities of Southeast Asia, with hands-on activities conducted at various locations in the region and beyond. 

On December 22-23, Taiwanese artist Charwei Tsai will hold a special screening, specifically showing together three video works of the “Singing Project” Series. Through the universal language of song, these works shed light on the condition of migration and displacement in the United Kingdom, Nepal and Southeast Asia. Selected works were commissioned by the Hayward Gallery and featured at Southbank Centre, London, in 2017.

All activities are open to the public, and registration is required. Admission fees are Bt150 for adult and Bt100 for senior and student.
