To mark the 60th birthday of Montien Boonma _ a pioneer of Thai contemporary art from the 1980s to 2000 and who died on Aug 17, 13 years ago _ his close students and assistants have created a commemorative showcase to express their admiration and gratitude to the late master. This is another major event relating to the artist, after the exhibition on his life and work at the Jim Thompson Art Center, which will end early next month.
