Brand New 2008
The Brand New 2008 art project has been organized for the fifth consecutive year with cooperation from Bangkok University Gallery, The Art Centre, Chulalongkorn University and Tadu Contemporary Art. The project is supported by the Office of Contemporary Art and Culture, Ministry of Culture and The Royal Netherlands Embassy, Thailand. This year an Amsterdam-based curator, Ms. Marianne Maasland, is invited to select the artists for this project.
The Brand New Project aims to encourage the new generation artists to express themselves through their solo exhibition without any compulsory themes or framework. This project also focuses on exchanging art enthusiasts and audiences among the collaborating galleries and devoloping a cooperative network of the art spaces in Bangkok.
