Jean Shin: Collections

March 22, 2018 - July 15, 2018

Contemporary artist Jean Shin (American, born South Korea 1971) transforms everyday objects—worn-out shoes, fashion remnants, military uniforms—to create dynamic works about connection and belonging. Her installations, often made from donated and discarded materials, raise provocative questions about what, and how, we consume.


On view in this exhibition are six large-scale installations and a video that tell powerful stories about the military, the fashion industry, and Shin’s own Asian American community.

Apichatpong Weerasethakul: The Serenity of Madness

March 31, 2018 - June 10, 2018

Apichatpong Weerasethakul: The Serenity of Madness, is a solo exhibition  by visual artist and ACC grantee Apichatpong Weerasethakul and is curated by ACC grantee Gridthiya Gaweewong. A leading figure in contemporary film and art, Apichatpong Weerasethakul has developed a singular realist-surrealist style in which he portrays the everyday alongside supernatural elements, suggesting a distortion between fact and folklore, the subconscious and the exposed, and various disparities of power. The artist’s passionate positions regarding class, labor, sexuality, science, and spirituality have informed his practice from early in his career to the present, and his work reveals stories often excluded in history in and out of Thailand: voices of the poor and the ill, marginalized beings, and those silenced and censored for personal and political reasons.

Curated by Gridthiya Gaweewong, Apichatpong Weerasethakul: The Serenity of Madness, uniquely presents a selected survey of rarely seen experimental short films and video installations by Weerasethakul, alongside his photography, drawings, sketches, and archival material that explore threads of sociopolitical commentary. In tandem with the exhibition, the Oklahoma City Museum of Art will present a retrospective of the director’s theatrical releases in its Samuel Roberts Noble Theater. The exhibition will also feature a special opening event for the Museum’s recently launched Film Society.
