Works/San Jose is pleased to announce – California to Bangkok and Back, its next exhibition, opening December 4th, 2007, and on view through January 19th, 2008.
In August, 2007, a three-week residency and workshop hosted by Silpakorn University in Bangkok Thailand, included three San Jose State University faculty artists who were invited to participate as part of a larger group of artists from several California Universities. The artists worked in Bangkok, alongside faculty artists from Thailand in the production of a major exhibition which opened in September 2007 at the Art Centre at Silpakorn University.
This exhibition at Works/San Jose represents the California portion of the ongoing exchange of Thai and California artists which was begun a number of years ago by art faculty from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo (Cal Poly.) It includes work from all of the artists who have participated in the latest exchanges. Four of these Thai artists have just recently completed residencies at San Jose State and at Cal Poly.
Exhibit Preview: Dec 6th, 2007 – 6:30pm, Works/San Jose
Public Reception: Dec 7th, 2007 – 7:00pm, Works/San Jose
