New art forms (NFTs) and distribution platforms (Meta-Verse, Over-the-top media services) and their inherent economic models challenge conventional ways of collecting and exhibiting art. They put museums under pressure to keep up with the latest digital trends, which cast as threats to institutions, disrupting the traditional ways to collecting art.

In this online conversation, as part of M+ International, curators from four institutions across Asia will come together to share how their expertise—structured by rigorous research frameworks that define value and authenticity of an artwork—can broaden our understanding of digital developments. Watch and Chill, a co-curated travelling moving image exhibition that combines physical and online components, serves as a starting point to discuss innovative forms of collaborations and new potentials that lie in such hybrid environments.

Watch and Chill: Streaming Art to Your Homes is a series of online talks organised 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.
