Responding to the exhibition Errata at Singapore’s Post Museum in early 2000s, ERRATA, at MAIIAM Contemporary Art Museum, explores the errors in contested historical narratives in Thailand and beyond through regional artists networks and women artists’ approaches to performance and media arts vis-a-vis the ongoing political turbulence, which stems from the colonial period to Cold War politics.

The Gift

Singapore, National Gallery Singapore

The Gift is now open for public at City Hall Wing, Level B1, The Ngee Ann Kongsi Concourse Gallery, National Gallery Singapore.

Presented by the Singapore Art Museum, the Gift explores the nature of relations, affinities and influences through the gesture of giving and return, as it is performed, remembered, and as that which remains and entangles, encapsulating simultaneously an expansiveness of spirit and an obligation to another.
