Thai artists like Navin Rawanchaikul, Rirkit Tiravanija and Pinaree Sanpitak have made exciting works in major art museums internationally, and Natee Utarit has had a solo exhibition at Singapore Art Museum. Yet, much of the Thai art scene is contained within Bangkok and Chiangmai, with private collectors building their own museums in an effort to identify contemporary art; and many galleries working within a totally local context. This conversation will discuss the dynamics of the Thai art market; who are the artists that stand out; and how is the art market developing to support new artists?

Held concurrently with the M1 Singapore Fringe Festival exhibition above, learn to navigate the art market with The Art Week Conversations, a series of three talks in Considering Art Markets: Singapore, Thailand and Indonesia and a new tour Considering Artists. Part of Singapore Art Week and brought to you by THEO Arts Professionals, pick up useful tips on art collecting in Singapore, Thailand and Indonesia while engaging in panel discussions that focus on relevant and current contemporary art fairs and gallery scenes. Gain first-hand access to Singapore’s art scene during the tour through on-site education and specially arranged visits to artists’ studios.
