Temporal Topography:
MAIIAM’s New Acquisitions;
from 2010 to Present

MAIIAM Contemporary Art Museum is one of Chiang Mai’s groundbreaking art institutions; and the museum’s collection is the driving force behind this success. The collection focus is on contemporary art of Thailand and the surrounding region; with an ongoing commitment to supporting living artists within an inter-generational scope. The first acquisition began in 1992, and since then the collection has continued to prosper, reflecting and responding to the now; whilst also passing the test of time. The exhibition responds to, and re-stages this collection scope.
