Below is an information about a new exhibition:


TRI-TOSA-WARA: 13 Years of The Art Center

7th Floor, Center of Academic, Chulalongkorn University
December 26, 2008 – January 17, 2009

Opening Reception: Thursday January 8, 2009, at 6pm

As the Center of Academic Resources celebrates its 30th anniversary this year and has organized an event to promote library and information science, The Art Center sees it as a good opportunity to stage a special exhibition to celebrate its own 13 years of operation as well.

Entitled "TRI-TOSA-WARA", which simply means "the 13th anniversary", the exhibition aims to chronicle the history of The Art Center, which was one of the first art institutes in Thailand to earn international recognition and has showcased many established and emerging Thai artists, several of whom went on to win international acclaim. The display of TRI-TOSA-WARA is a combination of documentations of exhibitions staged in the past 13 years – be they photos, videos, posters, catalogs and media reviews – and works on loan from artists and Chula's own collection. Some of the artists whose work will be display again include Hem Vejakorn, Nawin Lawanchaikul, Sakarin Krue-on, Michael Shaowanasai and Vasan Sittiket.

***To mark this special exhibition, The Art Center has cracked part of a wall to reveal artwork from 'The Last Love' exhibition, which was created in response to the Center of Academic Resources' plan to close down The Art Center back in 2003, an important chapter of the Center's history.
