Main Gallery, 9th Floor

Opening Ceremony on Friday 25 November 2016 at 18.30 hrs.

With the current political and social climate in Thailand, it marks up the current stage of transition not only links with what goes
on around the SEA region but also parts of the world where the contemporaneity is constituted with a shift of systematic of
thoughts at present. Whether it is neo-conservative uprising, progressive evolution, the intention of the exhibition is to broaden
beyond existing boundaries to reassess current issues at handin their contemporaneous entirety. With the keywords such as
humour, mass, superiority, irony, revolving, and contradiction are some among many, suggested to encourage new thoughts
of self in relation to society through the works of a world famous artist, Erwin Wurm and his practice that offers serious depth
of philosophies through sublimity of art. It is to stimulate the viewers to explore a light and humorous side yet critical sate of self
to see the pluralistic thoughts that locate one in a meaningful place in this contemporary era.

Unseen Siam
Early Photography 1860 - 1910

Organised by BACC Exhibition Department and River Books
BACC Project Sponsors: The Crown Property Bureau, The Royal Photographic Society of Thailand,
Thai Beverage Public Company Limited and Thai Airways International Public Company Limited
9 September - 6 November 2016
Main Gallery, 9th floor

The first photography exhibition in Thailand features more than 150 old Siamese
photographs from the very first beginning until the end of the reign of King Chulalongkorn,
the fifth monarch of Siam. The original negatives of these photographs are kept in the
foreign country’s archive. They were taken by foreign photographers and Thais who
were later appointed Siamese court photographers. These archaic photographs which
have never been seen would bring various historical aspects to light - whether portrait
photography of King Mongkut of Siam, King Chulalongkorn, nobles and commoners;
architectures and landscapesof the past hundred years; chronicled events and royal
ceremonies; citified and provincial life; traditional dance, Khon (a masked performance),
and Likay (dramatic performance). Every photograph has become the connection to
the works of contemporary artists who would capturethe metropolis’ social- economic
particularities, her ongoing changes, along with her people’s way of life, land and water
transportation. Contemporary performance and key technology of photography will
encourage culture of history, pave way for further interpretation and sustain the life
of these photographs.

Hearsay for Expression of New Attitudes (A Moment of Privacy / 2016)
To compose a magnificent poem,
It’s not only the matter of words or language.
For me, Poem is not only beauty of words
That can be understood through understanding.
You are unable to approach any poem through reading solely.
No matter how hard you try, poem remains unapproachable.
New perspective of poem may be an "action" or a "thinking group".
Is it possible to define poem beyond limitations of language and words?

CINEMA DIVERSE: DIRECTOR’S CHOICE 2016
The Female Perspective
Saturday 19 November 2016 at 16.00 - 20.30 hrs.
Auditorium, 5th Floor

"The Autobiography of Nicolae Ceausescu is a film constructed solely on archival footage, and yet it reaches beyond the realm of documentary. It' a film about "image",
in every sense of the word. This cinematic masterpiece should resonate with the people
in Thailand." Anocha Suwichakornpong

The fourth and final screening of Cinema Diverse: Director’s Choice 2016 The Female
Perspective
on Saturday 19 November 2016 is a Romanian film, "The Autobiography
of Nicolae Ceausescu" (2010)
directed by Andrei Ujica and chosen by Anocha
Suwichakornpong, an acclaimed Thai female Thai director of "The Mundane History"
and "By the Time It Gets Dark".

"The Autobiography of Nicolae Ceausescu"
caps a twenty-year quest to forge a new
kind of non-fiction cinema - part historical chronicle, part essayistic reflection - using archival
footage from Romania and the Soviet Union to trace the collapse of state Communism
in those countries.

During the summary trial that he and his wife were submitted to, Nicolae Ceausescu
is reviewing his long reign in power: 1965-1989. From a formal point of view, "The Autobiography of Nicolae Ceausescu" proves that it is possible to only use existing
images to yield films focused on recent history, yet with an epic vein similar to that of
the historical fiction cinema. This is an eminently syntactic endeavour, where montage
plays a twofold part: mise-en-scene, as it builds scenes that do not exist as such in the
rushes, and classical editing, connecting scenes together.

Join us for the screening of "The Autobiography of Nicolae Ceausescu" and the
post-screening talk with Andrei Ujica and Anocha Suwichakornpong.

Trailer of “The Autobiography of Nicolae Ceausescu”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=grdV_2l7R2g

Entry fee is 60 Baht per person (with a free programme).
Registration starts at 13.00 hrs. Film screening starts at 16.00 hrs.

*With Thai and English subtitles
*The talk after the screening will be in Thai with English translation.
*This event is suitable for adults 15 years and over.
