An Isaan takeover at Bangkok Art and Culture Center
What is it?
An over 90-day exhibition to celebrate the significant growth in the Isaan (northeastern Thai) contemporary art and culture scene. The exhibition, presented in multi-disciplinary practices (we’re talking paintings, photos, audio and video installations), examines a vast number of cultural phenomena in the contemporary Isaan scene.
Who’s in it?
Big names include Chokchai Tukpoe, Thaworn Kwamsawat, Songwit Pimpakun, Boonnam Sasood, Paisarn Am-pim, Thitiya Lao-an, Pattarapong Sripanya, Maitree Siriboon, Roengrit Kongmuang, Worawit Kaewsrinoum, Sompop Budtarad and Adisak Phupa.
Why’s it worth going?
Twelve Isaan-born artists present exceptional works that explore their roots, and contemplate the changes and challenges Isaan natives are facing. The event also features educational activities, storytelling sessions for kids and musical events.
On which subjects?
The exhibition focuses on the growth of the Isaan dynamic and how Isaan natives determine themselves based on folk norms and values.
The show will take over almost the entire BACC building, including the outdoor space in front of the building.
