Exhibition / Past 27 November 2021 - 21 November 2022 Future Tense FUTURE TENSE is the inaugural exhibition of the new Jim Thompson Art Center (JTAC) and is being held to celebrate the completion of the building, which has been under construction since 2018. The 14 participating artists present works that deal with the aftermath of the Cold War, the remnants of which still resonate today. It is also reflexive in the sense that the artists have considered their own beliefs, judgments and artistic practices during the research process. Exhibition / Past 07 March - 18 June 2017 People, Money, Ghosts People, Money, Ghosts (Movement as Metaphor) explores how the travel and migration of populations and industries, ideas and spiritual beliefs, aesthetics and technologies, and artists themselves are continually remaking our world—within and beyond the region we call Southeast Asia—and how this is manifested in the practices of the exhibiting artists. That is, the exhibition is about the process of movement itself as the hinge on which the works turn, rather than about questions that can be said to inhere in any single location. All of the exhibited works were created not in the artists’ ‘home’ cities, but rather in distant sites charged with locally-specific meanings, both historical and contemporary.
