VWFA is pleased to present 3 Young Contemporaries: Itineraries, an exhibition of new and recent works by three of Thailand’s most exciting artists: Arin Rungjang, Kornkrit Jianpinidnan and Pratchaya Phinthong. All three artists address the contemporary experience of place, travel and migration. Itineraries will explore their refreshing takes on an enduring theme in Thai cultural history: the poetics of distance, its physical and imaginary imprints, the crossing of intangible borders and their sometimes very tangible effects.
Though they were all academically trained in fine art, these three artists work across a range of traditional and non-traditional media. In stark contrast with previous generations of Thai contemporary art, their work is marked by a sustained engagement with the legacies of conceptualism, minimalism and process-oriented practice.
