The curatorial team and theme for the upcoming third edition of the Bangkok Art Biennale – slated to open on 22 October 2022 in various locations across the Thai capital – has been revealed.

Titled ‘CHAOS : CALM’, the exhibition seeks ‘to reflect the unpredictable conditions that the world has endured over the past few years, from the COVID-19 pandemic to climate change and socio-political unrest’, with artists reflecting on ‘the turbulence, trauma, and angst experienced by many during these uncertain times,’ the organisers said in a statement.

‘The past few years may prove to be a critical turning point in human history. In Ancient Greek mythology, Chaos refers to the void state preceding the creation of the universe or cosmos. From this state of chaos, the Biennale hopes to emerge from this dystopian contemporary world to offer a glimpse of clarity and calm through art.’
