10 August - 12 November 2017
Main Gallery, 7th floor

The Bangkok Art and Culture Centre is organising an exhibition 'EARTH- WATER- FOREST- AIR', between August-November 2017, as part of its year long programme to commemorate the passing of the King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the Kingdom of Thailand's ninth king. In particular, this exhibition will focus on his legacy concerning the realm's sustainability practice and environmentalconcern in view of the livelihood of the people of Thailand in all diversity.

The content of the exhibition will be presented by the works of artists, photographers, designers, architects, making up the creative practitioners who are responsible from conveying influential social messages, to those making contributions to the design and building programmes. Their works reflect the fact that the sustainability issue is not just confined to the physical and scientific world, but has as much to do with the social awareness, perception and cultural understanding.

It's hoped that the sustainability legacy of King Bhumibol Adulyadej will provide inspiration for the young generation and serve as a rallying point for all who are committed to the cause of environmental sustainability.

special project

The Portrait of the King Bhumibol Adulyadej

The portrait of the late King Bhumibol is another part of the project "In Remembrance of H.M. King Bhumibol : The Supreme Artist" organized by Bangkok Art and Culture Centre Foundation and curated by Prof. Dr. Apinan Poshayananda, a member of the BACC Foundation Board, in order to pay tribute to the Supreme Artist, the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

The portrait, on the wall of the BACC facing Rama I Road, was designed to refer back with the graffiti works on the BACC centre wall facing the Patumwan intersection, in which the five graffiti characters offer gestures of reverence to the late king.

The portrait, measuring 34 metres by 25 metres or 850 sqm., was made with the wheat- pasting technique with the collaboration between a group of street artists, and art students from five art institutions : King Mongkut Institute of Technology Lat Krabang, Poh Chang Academy of Arts, Rajamangala University of Technology Rattanakosin, Chang Silp(College of Fine Arts), Silpakorn University and Rajamangala University of Technology Thanyaburi. The students had earlier made the portrait out of 39 panels before they were put up on the wall. This is the world’s largest portrait of the monarch by wheat-pasting technique.
