Thai Lecture at Guggenheim



I found this article on Bangkok Post (click the blog title to read it), an English newspaper in Thailand. It is a report on Dr Apinan Poshyananda's lecture 'Thai-Tanic: Thai Art in the Age of Constraint and Coercion', delivered at the Guggenheim Museum. Dr. Apinan was the first Asian scholar to speak in the Hilla Rebay Lecture series (Yeah!!). It was pretty cool for me to see this. The sad thing is that out of all of the Thai artists he mentioned, there is not one female artist, and in all of the struggling he mentioned that Thai artists have gone through, he did not mention the female side of the story. But hey, the dude still did a great job at the lecture. I half expected this news to be somewhere in a Thai language newspaper, but I found nothing. Maybe because we just had an election & I guess it took over every space in the paper. There's no art section in Thai language newspapers, just entertainment.

So above is just a political cartoon about current situation. I grew up reading this guy. And the other one is the Thai police new campaign tactic; dressing up in traditional Thai soldier costumes & handing out flyers to encourage people to be more careful during new years celebration. Outta sight man.

Where have I been?



Break is almost over! Break is almost over!
I haven't done much of my own projects at all.
Just a lot of reading and working hard on website design.
I have been re-designing a website for Arthur Bradford's How's Your News It has been really fun.
They are shooting a series for MTV in January & will air in May 2008.
I think it is going to be really good & funny.
