Finally there’s a surprisingly well informed article about the Bangkok art market. Although there could be better people to interview for an in-depth analysis of the interview, but that might turn into a thesis instead of a magazine article. Really worth a read!
More than anything, I really hope to see more art fairs (even small ones), and collaborations between galleries here. That is the biggest and most annoying problem. Thais are deemed to be the nicest, but man oh man when it comes to working together and sharing $$$$… there’s another side to them. Not to pinpoint or anything – I LOVE Thailand and all the people here. They are definitely friendly and amazing people to be friends with. But the Thai art community sure is different. Better to start something myself than wait for others to be inspired! Time to work. Ciao x
