Platform: About Installation
Thur, Nov 16 at 6:00 to 8:00pm at the Queen’s Gallery.
Platform is a two-part exhibition showcasing Thailand’s most dynamic emerging artists working in installation, sound, new media and other non-traditional formats.
The Platform exhibitions will be held at the The Art Center, Chulalongkorn University from 23 Nov – 16 Dec and at the Queen’s Gallery from 9 – 30 Nov.
Platform brings together some of Thailand’s most talented and ambitious emerging artists. Their works are engaging, interactive and poetic, breathing new life into everyday materials and transforming the spaces of art into spaces for exchange, play and critical reflection on today’s global culture. While these artists have begun to build international profiles, there is still an inadequate framework for their work in Thailand. Platform will bridge this gap by linking two of Bangkok’s key sites for contemporary art – The Art Center, Chulalongkorn University and the Queen’s Gallery.
The Art Center will also host a live audio-visual performance by Platform artists, and a seminar co-hosted by the Hong Kong-based Asia Art Archive. Platform artists will also feature in an interactive art showcase at the Heineken Fat Festival (11-12 Nov), in collaboration with the Soi Music Festival. Platform is co-curated by Manuporn Luengaram and Australian curator, Dr David Teh.
