Description

Functionned as a non-profit art space, Project 304 was founded by a small group of Thai artists and art lovers in July 1996 to bridge the gap between art and society and to integrate art into the comunity. This visual art organisation is dedicated to providing exhibition space and promoting public access to contemporary art. Project 304 provides a forum for emerging local artists, as well as established local and international ones. artists will be able to developp and hone their skills, exchange information, execute collaborative projects and exhibit their work in an interdisciplinary setting. While no shy away from aesthetics, exhibitions will be concept-orientated, focusing on social, cultural and political issues. They will range from painting, sculpture, installations, prints and photography to video, film screenings and performance. Educational programs are also a major component. These will include seminars, informal gallery talks, didactic materials, hand outs and school outreach programs. Project 304 offers 90 square meters of exhibition space, in a three-storey town house building.
