Weaving Our Stories

A special exhibition in celebration of the 190th anniversary of U.S.-Thai diplomatic relations.

Date:

16 Jan - 25 Jun 2024

In celebration of the 190th anniversary of U.S.-Thai diplomatic relations, the U.S. Embassy in Bangkok, in partnership with Thai counterparts, embarked on a series of initiatives throughout 2023, reflecting the depth and breadth of the special partnership between the United States and the Kingdom of Thailand. The “Weaving Our Stories” initiative is the culmination of this year of celebration. Weaving Our Stories skillfully intertwines the threads of friendship between our two countries and people through a captivating public art installation and exhibition in Bangkok as well as co-creation sessions and educational programming.

Driven by the vision of Ambassador Robert F. Godec, the “Weaving Our Stories” initiative aims to ignite meaningful public discourse while celebrating the past and envisioning the future of our ties. The initiative encapsulates the essence of our 190-year journey and celebrates the enduring partnership between our two nations through a collective narrative that uplifts voices of ordinary people and showcases the rich tapestry of our U.S-Thai relationship which has been woven by generations.

The centerpiece of the initiative is the captivating “Time Owes Us Remembrance” art installation at Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (BACC) by Thai-American multidisciplinary artist Amanda Phingbodhipakkiya. “Time Owes Us Remembrance” is drawn from dozens of in-depth conversations, co-creation sessions, and in-person visits over the course of a year with communities across the United States and Thailand. Through a compelling combination of U.S.-Thai fabrics and a documentary, this extraordinary exhibition delves into the future of women, sustainability, climate, and the 190-year journey of the U.S.-Thai diplomatic relations. The strands of this tapestry of friendship between our two nations are many, and also cover areas such as trade, investment, addressing climate change, advancing public health, and ensuring regional stability and security.
