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.
