With the third edition’s theme of CHAOS : CALM, the Bangkok Art Biennale reflects challenges confronted by humankind during these precarious times. Artists whose works reflect turbulence, trauma and angst remind us of the fragility and weakness of human species. At the same time, in our disruptive and seemingly dystopian world, artists offer glimpses of hope, perseverance and determination to recover and thrive. In this chaos, art can surprise us as a path to overcome deep tensions by creating contexts that encourage calm, reflection, and tranquility. CHAOS : CALM will engage with sub themes that impact the human condition, such as geopolitical rivalry, ideological clashes, neocolonialism, migration, and diaspora. This edition will also contemplate the climate crisis, as artists process the ecological collapse and destruction of Mother Earth while urgent warning signs around us continue to be dismissed and ignored.
