BANGKOK — Israeli and Mexican artists are bringing their exhibitions to a Bangkok gallery from Wednesday through the end of the month.
Featuring photographs and interactive exhibitions, a contemporary art display will showcase works by Mexican and Israeli artists at the The National Gallery near Bangkok’s Old Town.
The exhibition itself includes Israeli artist Maya Gelfman’s “Outside Looking In,” a collection of paintings and installations centered around the postmodern theme that reality can be reflected to mean different meanings.
Combining works from four contemporary Mexican artists, landscapes and abstract spaces will feature in Mexican exhibition “Geographies.” “To Dream Cities On Concentric Circles,” is an installation by Betsabee Romero that focuses on the sacred altars in Thai – and Mexican – taxis. Alfredo de Stefano’s “All the Deserts Are My Desert” is a collection of 20 photographs of seven deserts from around the world: the Sahara, the Gobi, the Atacama, the Nazca, the Thar, the Gran Cuenca and the Chihuahua.
Move from sand to sea with “Oceans,” an interactive installation of ocean waves by Maria Jose de la Macorra and see landscapes as both 2D and 3D geometric shapes in Enrique Rosas’ “From Geometry to Geography.”
Those especially interested in the artists can attend a talk 9:30am to 12:30pm at the National Gallery to listen to Romero, Gelfman and Thai artist Wijit Apichatkriengkrai discuss the use of art in public spaces.
Outside Looking In & Geographies Exhibitions, sponsored by the embassies of Israel and Mexico, starts at 5:30pm from Wednesday through July 30 at The National Gallery, which can be reached by car or by boat from Phra Arthit pier.
