Watch and Chill 3.0: Streaming Suspense is a screening program in collaboration with the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea (MMCA), the Peabody Essex Museum (PEM), and the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV). The program will include physical presentations at all of the hosting partners as well as an online presentation on the MMCA’s Watch and Chill (watchandchill.kr/en) platform, the world’s first subscription-based streaming platform for contemporary art, where the audience worldwide can freely access to the media collection of major international art institutions. Entitled Streaming Suspense, Watch and Chill season 3 explores ways in which methods of storytelling and imaging conjure immersion through the strategies of tension. Sub-themed as “Landscape under Moonlight,” “Assembly of Evidence,” “Mutable Corpus,” “Performance of the Undead,” “Post-dystopian Worldbuilding,” the contents for both online platform and the offline exhibition presents works that experiment with the psyche of uncanny, abnormality, shape-shifting, and related implications today. Artists include:

Meriem Bennani, Pia Borg, Club Ate (Justin Shoulder, Bhenji Ra), Fyerool Darma, FHHH friends (Han Seungjae, Han Yangkyu, Yoon Hanjin), Cécile B. Evans, Naomi Rincón Gallardo, Chitra Ganesh, Nic Hamilton, Kwon Hayoun, Jang Minseung, Jung Jaekyung, siren eun young jung, Paloma Contreras Lomas, Liang Luscombe, Garush Melkonyan, Alison Nguyen, Park Chan-kyong, Luiz Roque, Jacolby Satterwhte, Skawennati, Lior Shamriz, Song Sanghee, Karina Utomo and Cūrā8
