crossover : The Unveiled Collection
By BACC Exhibition Department
20 February - 14 June 2015
Main Gallery, 7th floor
Opening Reception on Wednesday 25 March 2015 at 18.30 hrs.

Crossover: The Unveiled Collection has started as an attempt to merge the history of Thai art, which is characterized by its
specific context, with the history of art collecting, which has been created by a variety of perspectives in the art scene. For several
decades, many respected Thai collectors have devoted their time and effort to studying art history, visiting exhibitions, meeting
artists, and preserving works of art from the ravages of time. Some collectors can be considered as the pillar of Thai art community,
and with their help, now we have the opportunity to present major works in Thai art history, including Pratuang Emjaroen’s
"จักรวาล" (jak-kra-wan), and Thawan Duchanee’s "The Nemi Jakata".

This exhibition will be the first time for some prestigious works in private collections to be shown to the public, as well as the first
official introduction of some Thai collectors. Major works will bring the audience back to various periods in history, from the arrival
of the western concept of modernism to important movements in Thai contemporary art. These works reveal an artistic path of
combination between the western forms and techniques and the eastern spirit and mind, while the collectors play the role of
pioneers who discover the new aesthetic territory and unearth the cultural heritage of time.

With numerous outstanding works from private collections, crossover: The Unveiled Collection aims to inspire the general public,
artists, art students, and other collectors to recognize the importance of preserving, collecting, maintaining and disseminating
this cultural heritage of Thai art.

of this year's exhibition,clairvoyance, taken from Inao, traditional Thai epic, when Prince
This lecture focuses on urban media with critical viewpoints in the media phenomena fast
developing in the city, whether it is in the form of big or small digital screen, media facades,
or electronic advertising tool embedded in public spaces. In our today’s modern cities are
hybrid structures in which technology is invisibly interweaved in the perception layers of
our daily lives, the lecture creates an awareness on the changes which are hardly visible
to the eyes and are underlying today's cities. Through some samples of media artworks,
the lecture aims to unfold digital structure that affects the psychology of people who
live in the city. Joraka proclaims during his dagger dance for the gods:

"My two hands held high in reverence for all gods big and small,
for all those with clairvoyance, do not side with the villain"

Other photos in this exhibition are sceneries and snapshots from Thailand and other countries. Among them are photos from Timor-Leste and Malta for the first time.

Cinema Diverse: Director's Choice 2015
By BACC Arts Activity Department
Saturday 14 March 2015, at 16.30 - 20.30 hrs.
Auditorium, 5th Floor

Bangkok Art and Culture Centre proudly presents "Cinema Diverse: Director's Choice".
For the third Cinema Diverse, five international films, selected by five acclaimed Thai
directors, will be shown bi-monthly from March - November 2015, followed by a talk
with the Thai director after each screening.

The first screening on Saturday 14 March 2015 is supported by the Embassy of the United
States of America. Frances Ha (USA/2012) is directed by Noah Baumbach. It has been
chosen by Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit, the talented young Thai director of Mary
Is Happy, Mary Is Happy, 36 and The Master.

Frances Ha has been screened in many international film festivals and was nominated
for Best Actress (Comedy or Musical) at the Golden Globes (2014) and Best International Independent Film at British Independent Film Awards (2014).

"Frances Ha is like a checklist for all the confusions a graduate faces. The series of both
short and long events unfold in the film telling stories of worry, fear and loss. The themes
of lost childhood dream, and longing for the past are major themes throughout. Francesis
an annoying but adorable character. We can easily empathise with her confusion through
events that are at times comedic and at time tragic. Frances Ha makes us realise that
every graduate, whether from New York or Bangkok, can be crazy and lose their way sometimes" Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit

Join us for the free screening of Frances Ha and a post screening talk with Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit with Kong Rithdee, a film writer/documentary director and
AdityaAssarat, a producer/film director.
