BACC Art Talk 2018: "Lesson Abroad Series" # 2

"Thawan Duchanee 1964 - 1968 : A Retrospective of the Unknown Zoomers/Consen's collection"

Saturday 10th November 2018 at 14.00 - 16.00 hrs.
Multi-Function Room on 1st Floor, BACC

Lecturer: Mr. Henk Zoomers (Thai art history scholar who owns Thawan's unknown works)

After finishing his study at Silpakorn University in Bangkok, the late Thai National Artist Thawan Dachanee studied during the period 1964 - 68 with a scholarship from the Dutch government at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten (State Academy of Fine Arts) in Amsterdam. Henk Zoomers and his wife, Tine Consen (Thawan's ex-girlfriend in Amsterdam), met Thawan again at his BR Apartment at New Petchburi Rd.
in 1974, and later at his home at Navatanee (Bangkok), at Jed Yod and Baan Dam at Nang Lae (Chiang Rai).

Thawan's demise in 2014 caused a sense of urgency to Mr Zoomers, a scholar on Thai history, about the art collection in his possession: 16 oil paintings, 9 drawings and 8 sketches. Having been stored for half a century in cellar and basement, Mr Zoomers would like to bring the Zoomers/Consen's collection into public.

Mr Zoomers' lecture at the Bangkok Art and Culture Center (BACC) will cover the following topics:

- A description of Thawan's study at the RBK, his two exhibitions and sojourn in the Netherlands

- The relationship between his family and Thawan Duchanee, as well as comments on misinfornation written
about Thawan in Thai newspapers and magazines

- An overview of Thawan's artworks in his possession

*Lecture is conducted in English and free of charge.
*No reservation is required.
