Kamin Lertchaiprasert: 31st Century Museum of Contemporary Spirit (Laboratory)
Chicago , IL 60603
Curators work at the intersection of many protagonists and professions in the making of exhibitions; their task is always a cooperative, if not a collaborative, venture. Thai artist Kamin Lertchaiprasert in collaboration with SAIC students in the Department of Exhibition’s Advanced Curatorial Practice course create an installation of work based on personal experiences. This exhibition extends from Kamin’s most recent project, 31st Century Museum of Contemporary Spirit (Kanazawa, Japan, 2008 and Chiang Mai, Thailand, 2011), which aims to restore people’s freedom of expression and strengthen confidence in hidden abilities. Kamin’s practice is concerned with combining the creative process involved in artmaking with the daily rituals and disciplines underpinning his personal beliefs. He is also the co-founder of The Land Project in Chiang Mai, Thailand, along with Rirkit Tiravanija and will be exhibiting recent work this fall at the Museum of Contemporary Art Bochum, Germany and at the 4th Guangzhou Triennial in China.
