For a short period of 6 years since it was first established in 2013, Hotel Art Fair has become one of Bangkok’s most anticipated art event. This annual event brings galleries, local and international artists and collectors, and art enthusiasts together under one hotel roof for a weekend. Here are 5 things you need to know about Hotel Art Fair 2019.
Where is Hotel Art Fair This Year?
This year’s Hotel Art Fair will partner with W Hotel Bangkok to showcase diverse array artworks from all over Asia. Reflected in its innovative design, W Hotel Bangkok’s passion for art, fashion, music and entertainment makes it the perfect location for this year’s Hotel Art Fair.
What’s The Theme This Year?
Hotel Art Fair 2019 will feature the theme “Breaking Boundaries,” which means blurring and blending the lines that define what art should be. This theme also represents the creation of something that defies the norm and, in the process, discovers a new path where creativity is nurtured. For a weekend, you can witness how artists have stepped out of their comfort zone to discover the undiscovered, and perhaps, become inspired to also step out of your comfort zone — however you may define it.
What’s The Purpose Of Hotel Art Fair?
In 2013, Hotel Art Fair started as a mission “to move further than the status-quo and initiate the new,” and that hasn’t changed. This year, the event also aims to “create a vibrant and supportive community for the arts to thrive”. The artworks housed at the Hotel Art Fair also provide a thought-provoking medium for people to engage in conversation of the arts and how it embodies one’s view of the world. So come prepared to be amazed.
Where Are The Artists From?
This year’s Hotel Art Fair is the most diverse yet, with participants from all over Asia including Singapore, Malaysia, Korea, Japan and, yours truly, Thailand. The event’s ability to convene such a wide variety of cultures, as reflected in different artworks, provides an eye-opening experience for all.
What’s Special About This Year’s Hotel Art Fair?
Can anyone create art? Of course, they can. This year’s Hotel Art Fair marks the first time that the event will feature numerous intriguing artworks created by autistic children. As with the concept of defying expectations, these artworks will blow you away.
