About the Programme

Watch and Chill: Streaming Art to Your Homes is a travelling moving image exhibition curated by M+ in collaboration with the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Seoul, the Museum of Contemporary Art and Design in Manila, and MAIIAM Contemporary Art Museum in Chiang Mai. Drawing on interests and collections of the four institutions, it features more than twenty video works by contemporary artists from across Asia.

The pandemic has challenged art institutions to make their collections visible online, where they can be seen from the comfort and confinement of our homes. Watch and Chill takes inspiration from our habits during two years of lockdowns and forced isolation. The works selected speak to interactions with objects and other beings, as well as projections of alternative lives and forms of our communities.

The programme consists of in-gallery exhibition in Seoul, screenings in Chiang Mai, a drive-in cinema in Manila, as well as an online streaming platform where the works can be viewed in orchestrated sequences. Watch and Chill is also showcased in our Viewing Booths from January to February at the Mediatheque—an on-demand library where you can view single-channel works from the M+ Collection.

Watch and Chill: Streaming Art to Your Homes, as part of the M+ International initiative, serves as a springboard to discuss innovative forms of collaborations and new potentials that lie in today's hybrid environments.

We invite everyone to join the discussions, where artists and curators will explore how they present and adapt existing works and produce future projects for virtual audiences.
