PRIYAGEETHA DIA 


Priyageetha Dia /ப்ரியகீதா டியா/ is an arts practitioner based in Singapore, primarily working with time-based media. Her practice is concerned with speculative methods of counter-narratives that correspond to Southeast Asian plantation histories and the transnational migration of ethnic communities that intersect with the colonial production of land, labour, and capital.

Her recent exhibitions include a solo show at Yeo Workshop, Singapore (2022), and group exhibitions at La Trobe Art Institute, Australia (2022), National Gallery Singapore (2020), and Art Science Museum, Singapore (2019). Priyageetha was a resident at the NTU Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore residencies programme from April to August 2022.

She currently lives and works in Singapore.
