The Bangkok Art and Culture Centre is hosting “Twist and Shout”, an exhibition of art by Japanese contemporary artists.
In this exhibition, the ambiguous nature of the Japanese youth culture is interpreted as a consequence of young people’s need to “twist” and “shout.” The 17 exhibiting artists present paintings, sculptures, videos, photographs, and installations that incorporate popular and familiar images and expressions, on the one hand, but intently confront the actual and urgent issues in Japanese society, on the other.
Curators Kenji Kubota and Yoko Nose have assembled the show as part of Mekong-Japan Exchange Year 2009. The exhibition can be viewed until the end of this year
at the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre, 939 Rama I Road, BTS: National Stadium. The BACC is open daily, 10am – 9pm, Mondays closed. The entry is free. For more information you’ll need to call + 66 (0) 2260 8560.
