From the 13th November till the 15th December, the Sundaram Tagore Gallery in Hong Kong will be presenting an exciting exhibition entitled Thresholds: Contemporary Thai Art featuring the works of six innovative Thai artists. The exhibition, curated by art historian Greg Galigan, aims to change the way people see Thai art. Rather than being recognised for its sophisticated and diverse art culture, Thailand has become more known for its tourist industry and political factions despite having participated in all of the world’s major biennials, triennials and art fairs. Thresholds attempts to change this obscured view by presenting key works by six established Thai artists: Angkrit Ajchariyasophon, Nim Kruasaeng, Sakarin Krue-on, Kamin Lertchaiprasert, Nipan Oranniwesna and Phaptawan Suwannakudt.
- Angkrit Ajchariyasophon, 2011187, 2011, acrylic on canvas, 78.7 x 78.7 inches
The exhibition brings together the six contemporary artists, whose works will be split into six case studies demonstrating how Thai artists are representing current social, political and artistic issues. For all of you who are admirers and fans of Southeast Asian art this is definitely an exhibition worth checking out.
