Melbourne contemporary art-space, Grau Projekt, is presenting Un-Thaid, a show curated by a Thai-born Melbourne-based acclaimed artist Vipoo Srivilasa.
Opening on the 13th June 2019, the event will be celebrated with a live performance by artist Nakarin Jaikla.
This exhibition brings together the work of five contemporary artists from Thailand who now live and work in Australia: Phaptawan Suwannakudt, Nakarin Aaron Jaikla, Bundit Puangthong, Pimpisa Tinpalit, and Somchai Charoen.
Arriving in Australia independently of one another across the 1990s and 2000s, these artists are now based in the urban centres of Melbourne and Sydney and have continued their distinct individual practices since arriving in this country. The work on display in this exhibition is a diverse offering, including performance, painting, ceramics, sculpture, video, and installation.
Articulating multi-dimensional and layered histories, all of these artists are emboldened in their shared cultural experience of growing up in Thailand and then relocating to Australia while continuing to develop and refine their artistic practices.
Un-Thaid Opening Night 13 June 2019 5:30 – 8:30pm
Tickets (includes entry and a cocktail on arrival) are on sale now.
