Exhibition #10: Other Possible Worlds: Contemporary art from Thailand
Including work by 12 younger and midcareer artists, Other Possible Worlds presents contemporary art from Thailand to Australian audiences. Reflecting Thai art, the exhibition includes works in many media—painting, sculpture, photography, installation, neon, video, prints and works on paper—and from many parts of the country. While Thailand is a major destination for Australian tourists, few Australians engage with Thai culture. But as co-curator John Cruthers reports, “Thai art, becoming more established on the world stage, is a fantastic entry point to the country and its diverse cultures.
It is creative, sophisticated and often politically engaged. While it has not been easy to see, learn about or collect Thai art outside Thailand, Other Possible Worlds brings a range of work by leading younger artists to Australia.” Part two of the exhibition is on view at Delmar Gallery, 26 June–1 August.
