The group exhibition features artists from MAIIAM’s permanent collection who engage with historical or autobiographical accounts of the diaspora experience drawing particular attention to the act of crossing the permeable, geopolitical borders that punctuate Southeast Asia. The exhibition opened March 3 and will run until October 2018. The exhibition also received a review in the Bangkok Post article titled “The Invisible Borders.” MAIIAM Contemporary Art Museum in Chiang Mai holds the private collection of the Bunnag-Beurdeley family’s 30 year contemporary art collection. The Museum opened in 2016 as a way to inspire new collectors and showcase the family’s love for Southeast Asian contemporary art.
