An Incubating Project for Young Artists

Organised by Bangkok Art and Culture Centre
Operated by Tentacles in collaboration with Exhibition Department,
and Education Department

"SILPYUPEN" is an education programme under the "Early Years Project," an incubating project for young artists. With the aim of supporting young emerging artists, the programme seeks to empower them with knowledge about the art industry and its infrastructure. Participating artists will not only learn about the shifting face of art in different eras, but will also understand how to embrace changing social trends as well as how to link their ideas to other disciplines. In order to survive and grow in the art industry, artists need to learn to be adaptable, to increase their potential, and to find new ways of working in today’s world.

and Bangkok Art and Culture Centre
2 September 2017 - 7 January 2018
Main Gallery, 9th floor

"Through the Lens of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej" Exhibition The exhibition that Thais can't afford to miss

The Royal Photographic Society of Thailand and Bangkok Art and Culture Centre are pleased to invite you to "Through the Lens of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej" Exhibition. The exhibition is a part of the “In Remembrance of HM King Bhumibol: The Supreme Artist" project conceived in recognition of the late king's remarkable artistic talent and of his royal grace as a Thai art patron.

Curated by Nitikorn Kraivixian, parts of the 200 photographs by the late king have never been exhibited before. The exhibition will be divided into three periods of his lifetime. Fist, the beginning of the reign is a collection of black-and-white photographs featuring Her Majesty Queen Sirikit and the prince and princesses from the days of their birth. Second, the middle of the reign features moments in which the late king was working at various places and for different projects regarding agriculture, irrigation, rural development, and royal development projects initiated by HM the late king. In the third part will be a collection featuring photographs of HM the late king staying at Klai Kangwon Palace, landscapes, as well as his pet dogs.

"Through the Lens of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej" Exhibition will be held at the main exhibition on the 9th floor of Bangkok Art and Culture Centre from September 2, 2017 to January 7, 2018.

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.

Curated By Raw-Mab Studio
2 - 29 December 2017
People’s Gallery P1-P3, 2nd floor, artHUB@bacc

Opening on Saturday 2 December 2017 at 19.00 hrs.

'Motivation' explores the creative process from beginning to the end through the artist’s perspective. For this project, 25 selected student's artworks will be displayed. Each artwork does not only mainly aim at the final result as an art piece, but it also illustrates ‘the creativity’ by presenting the period of 'en route to creativity'. This exhibition is conceived with the fact that when an artwork is finished, sometimes something might be lost along the way. Therefore, this exhibition will focus more on experimental and unfinished works which contains new possibilities, creative probability, and viewpoints of this generation's art students toward the modern world they are living in.
