The Serenity of Madness

September 15, 2017 - December 8, 2017

Apichatpong Weerasethakul: The Serenity of Madness is a traveling exhibition curated by Gridthiya Gaweewong and produced by Independent Curators International (ICI), New York. This new solo exhibition uniquely presents a selected survey of rarely-seen experimental short films and video installations by Weerasethakul, alongside his photography, sketches, and archival materials that explore threads of socio-political commentary which has continually guided his practice. His passionate positions regarding class, labor, sexuality, and spirituality paint a portrait of an artist concerned with ethics, power, science, and liberation in equal measures. 

Apichatpong Weerasethakul and Gridthiya Gaweewong both received ACC Fellowships, in 2004 and 2002 respectively, for creative research.
