The exhibition speaks to interactions with objects and other beings as well as projections of alternative lives and forms of community
M+ announces Watch and Chill: Streaming Art to Your Homes, a travelling artists’ moving image exhibition curated in collaboration with the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea, in Seoul, the Museum of Contemporary Art and Design in Manila, and MAIIAM Contemporary Art Museum in Chiang Mai. Drawing on the interests and collections of these four institutions, Watch and Chill features more than twenty video works by contemporary artists from Asia.
The programme consists of on-site and online presentations, including gallery exhibitions in Seoul and Chiang Mai, a drive-in cinema in Manila, a series of screenings and public programmes in Hong Kong, and an online streaming platform where the works can be viewed in orchestrated sequences throughout the duration of the project. The pandemic has challenged art institutions to make their collections even more visible online, where they can be seen from the comfort and confinement of home. Watch and Chill takes inspiration from our habits during two years of lockdowns and forced isolation. The works selected speak to interactions with objects and other beings as well as projections of alternative lives and forms of community.
This event is part of M+ International, a platform for partnership with institutions around the world. Previous M+ International initiatives have been organised in partnership with the Sydney Opera House, Mori Art Museum, Power Station of Art, and National Gallery Singapore.
