WONDERFUL THAI FRIENDSHIP EXHIBITION
Wonderful Thai Friendship is the first art exhibition at WTF Gallery. The show aims to introduce the exhibition space to the local community and Bangkok people at large. The exhibition takes the inspiration from a typical “summer show” in New York City, where a diverse collection of artists and work is organized around a theme — often playful or irreverent. Wonderful Thai Friendship may be found in the commentary of the works themselves or from the simple fact many of the creators and curator are indeed good friends (or not!) Summer is a time to escape pressures and the heat (from the weather or man-made.) WTF will be a cool oasis in the city during these steamy months!
The exhibition features 13 artworks by 13 artists — Thais or reside in Thailand, both established and up-and-coming. The exhibition is comprised of varied contemporary media: drawing, printmaking, mixed-media, video installation, photography and performance.
All works are the artists’ signature pieces and handpicked by Chattiya Nitpolprasert, the young Thai curator who co-curated Thai Pavillion at Venice Biennale 2009.
