Exhibition: "Apichatpong Weerasethakul: The Serenity of Madness"
“The Serenity of Madness” is structured into distinct sections: one corresponding to the artist’s private world, peopled with friends, family and long-time collaborators; another takes up the public sphere but with a more abstract dimension of experience, utilizing light, memory and temporal, spatial and spiritual displacement. The survey culminates with a selection of recent work addressing the social reality in his homeland.
Curated by Gridthiya Gaweewong, a longtime collaborator of the filmmaker’s, this exhibition will be accompanied by a retrospective of the director’s theatrical releases in the Samuel Roberts Noble Theater. It will also include a special opening event for the Museum’s newly launched Film Society.
“Apichatpong Weerasethakul: The Serenity of Madness” is a traveling exhibition curated by Gridthiya Gaweewong and produced by Independent Curators International (ICI), New York. The exhibition and tour are made possible, in part, with the generous support from MAIIAM Contemporary Art Museum, Chiang Mai; the ICI Board of Trustees and ICI’s International Forum.
