Tang Contemporary Art
Headquartered in Beijing with a Hong Kong outpost, Tang Contemporary Art has just launched its newest gallery in Bangkok, continuing its mission to develop experimental Chinese and Southeast Asian art. Chinese star Ai Weiwei and Thai film creative Apichatpong Weerasethakul are among those who will herald the arrival of this sparkly new space, which will host unmissable exhibition Northern Land, Southern Seas, combining works from 14 major artists from across China and Southeast Asia.
Artists include heavyweights from Indonesia, the Philippines and Cambodia, as well as Thailand and China (think pioneers Zhao Zhao, Zeng Fanzhi and Huang Yongping). Even more dazzling is the range of materials from painted canvases to Ai Weiwei’s innovative use of ancient porcelain, Indo creative Entang Wiharso’s quirky automobile-inspired works, using aluminium, car paint and resin, Thai Udomsak Krisanamis’ abstract collages of acrylic on plywood, and Cambodian Sopheap Pich’s bold woven works harnessing bamboo, rattan, wire, plastics, beeswax, damar crystal and charcoal.
Until 30 Oct, 2016.
