It's not an exaggeration to say that Jim Thompson Art Center's latest exhibition is a paradise of inspiration for those who are passionate about textiles. Curated by artist and textile expert Yoshiko Iwamoto Wada, "mnemonikos: Art Of Memory In Contemporary Textiles" features works from 29 artists, Thai and international, who created their works through various techniques, from dyeing, painting, weaving, stitching, printing, laser etching to heat transfer and vacuum coating of metal onto fabric and more.
The word "textile" usually prompts an image of something prosaic - material for practical purposes, clothing and the like. But the works exhibited here belong rightly to the sphere of fine art.
Through different types of fabrics and techniques, the artists present their stories and historical and cultural backgrounds, making it enjoyable for those who are interested in contemporary art as well.
mnemonikos: Art Of MemoryIn Contemporary Textiles is on display at Jim Thompson Art Center until February.
