DIASPORA: Exit, Exile, Exodus of Southeast Asia’s extended program and activities
To continue to explore, through contemporary art, issues of displacement and hybridity of the region, we proudly present a series of activities in the upcoming months:
on 3–4 November Thai artist Jakkai Siributr will conduct a public workshop that actively engages the audience through the medium of embroidery to revisit past and recent histories of migration and exodus of local communities.

Singing Project Screening
In February, Taiwanese artist Charwei Tsai will hold a special screening, specifically showing together three video works of the Singing Project Series. Through the universal language of song, these works shed light on the condition of migration and displacement in the United Kingdom, Nepal and Southeast Asia. Selected works were commissioned by the Hayward Gallery and featured at Southbank Centre, London, in 2017.
We are also pleased to launch an archive room that complements and extends the research initiated for DIASPORA: Exit, Exile, Exodus of Southeast Asia of historical records, images and books that address concerns of belonging, border crossing and otherness in the diasporic journeys of Southeast Asia.
