Some Nations that Biennale has been to includes England, Indonesia, Japan, China, and more. This is the first time that Thailand is hosting Art Biennale 2018. The art event will be taking place from the 2nd of November to the 28th of February.
The art designed by the artists is unique to each of the natural surroundings of where the artist will be creating the art. This is called “Site – Specific Art”. Each of the 60 artists are given an area that the artist must establish a connection to their art, whether it be art pieces, or an exhibition that can be explored. This includes 7 islands, community locations, and beaches.
There are 3 main activities at the Thailand Biennale Krabi 2018: Edge of the Wonder Land.
- Theme Exhibition: This is where contemporary artists will display “Theme Exhibition” art that represents the concept of each artist.
- New artists who are up and coming from all over the world are sending in their art to be judged by international art judges who will choose art pieces deemed impeccable that connect with the “Theme” established. There will also be one winner announced at the event.
- Educational activities will take place everyday throughout the 4 months of the exhibition. This is to help spread and conserve art in an academic theme. With the goal to exchange knowledge on an international level, along with helping people understand the power of art and the effects of art on society.
