The Art Centre Silpakorn University is pleased to present our upcoming exhibition!
Allegory of Cave (Part I) presents a series of paintings that traverse through different eras, moving, splitting off and changing in each dimension of the development of Thai modern art. The paintings in this exhibition are a shaker of aesthetics that change like dimming light passing through the cave of time until they form to become a dominant art form of an era.
This exhibition presents paintings by Chakrabhand Posayakrit, Charoon Boonsuan and Anan Panin as well as those by some new blood including Thanawat Numcharoen, Pichaya Khunnawat and Wanapol Saenkham, in order to create significant contemporary dialogues. The works reveal the fractures which split off when art develops from one era to another. They open the space in which the audience can ponder over the artistic fractures occurring in Thailand when modern art become contemporary, represented by the paintings from the Silpakorn Art Collections and the works by the new blood, which move forward with the changing tide of the Thai society.
