Bridge Art Space is still riding the buzz that followed its launch in 2014. But now, one year later, the venue is no longer a fresh face on the scene. Through projects like its Threshold series, Bridge has added a welcome wrinkle to Bangkok’s art world. This month, it celebrates its first anniversary with a continuation of Threshold that draws on fellow curators to cull the work of top international artists.
Studying the spaces between places and states—both the physical and the metaphysical—through the lens of digital artists and photographers, the latest Threshold exhibition gathered curators who inspired Bridge’s Dan Burman in the first place. Involved are Myrtille Tybarenc of the nomadic Toot Yung Art Space and Brian Curtin of H Gallery.The collaboration further cements the bond between figures in Bangkok’s art world, celebrating the rise of a gallery while rallying around provocative art.
Tybarenc has curated the work of Skall, the French artist, active since the 1980s, whose self-portraits fuse the natural and artificial worlds. Curtin presents the work of Dhanainun Dhanarachwattana, whose photographs of Bangkok and its outskirts float between social commentary, shots of personal significance, and art for the sake of beauty. From Burman comes a medley of artwork from Sabato Visconti, Esra Kalk, Jessica Ta, Chris Clarke, and Jay Curtis.
Threshold Pt. 3 launched in October with a sight-and-sound performance by Thai artist Liew Niyomkarn. The exhibition runs until November 30 at Bridge Art Space.
