The third Bangkok Art Biennale (BAB), slated for October 22, 2022 to February 23, 2023, revealed its theme and curatorial team on September 30. Titled “CHAOS : CALM,” the biennale will foreground artists exploring ideas of unpredictability and anxiety in a world troubled by climate disaster, disease, and socio-political unrest. Inspired by the ancient Greek mythological conception of chaos as the void state from which the universe was created, the BAB hopes “to emerge from this dystopian contemporary world to offer a glimpse of clarity and calm through art.” The festival will be led by artistic director Apinan Poshyananda with art consultant Nigel Hurst; curator and scholar Loredana Pazzini-Paracciani; director of Gallery Ver, Jirat Ratthawongjirakul; and founder of Bangkok creative consultancy Mysterious Ordinary, Chomwan Weeraworawit. Aside from physical exhibitions across the Thai capital, BAB will also utilize virtual viewing platforms.
