    The Oklahoma City Museum of Art (OKCMOA) is presenting a rare opportunity to view the works of Cannes Film Festival award winning filmmaker Apichatpong Weerasethakul, a leading figure in contemporary film and art. Opening Saturday, March 31, OKCMOA’s “Apichatpong Weerasethakul: The Serenity of Madness” uniquely presents a selected survey of rarely seen experimental short films and video installations by the Thai filmmaker, alongside his photography, sketches and archival materials that explore threads of socio-political commentary.

    Apichatpong’s work is an outward expression of his passionate positions regarding class, labor, sexuality, science and spirituality. As an immersive, conceptual and contemporary experience, the exhibition reveals stories often excluded in history in and out of Thailand: voices of the poor and the ill, marginalized people, and those silenced and censored for personal and political reasons. He has developed a realist-surrealist style in which the portrayal of the everyday alongside supernatural elements suggests a distortion between fact and folklore, the subconscious and the exposed, and various disparities of power.

    The exhibition will be accompanied by a retrospective of Apichatpong’s theatrical releases in the Samuel Roberts Noble Theater. The exhibition will run March 31 through June 10.

    Adult admission is $12, with discounts available for seniors, students and members of the military. Admission for Museum members is always free.

    The Museum is open Tuesday to Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Thursday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday noon to 5 p.m.
