Part of the Thai CulturalFest organised by National Heritage Board, Thai Transience showcases paintings, sculptures, installations, videos, films and performances by leading Thai artists. Inspiration behind these pieces are drawn from Buddhist artefacts and art objects from local museums and religious sites within Thailand, showing how Thai contemporary artists continue to create new expressions responding to their heritage and faith. A selection of these traditional artefacts will be featured alongside new contemporary artworks in this exhibition.

Co-organised by the Singapore Art Museum (SAM) and the Office of Contemporary Art and Culture, Ministry of Culture (Thailand), and guest-curated by Professor Apinan Poshyananda, the exhibition features more than 20 new works from both emerging and senior Thai contemporary artists such as Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Araya Rasdjarmrearnsook, Bussaraporn Thongchai, Chokchai Takpho, Chusak Srikwan, Dow Wasiksiri, Imhathai Suwatthanasilp, Kamin Lertchaiprasert, Panya Vijinthanasarn, Rirkrit Tiravanija and Yuree Kensaku.
