About Early Years Project

An initiative conceived by BACC Exhibition Deaprtment to foster the talents of fledgling artists, the program selects participating works from a range of public submissions with the goal of igniting the careers of young artists with effective opportunities to create in Thailand and overseas. The project’s long-term goal is to develop a support base for one generation of artists for a certain period of time while also offering artists of various origins and styles the opportunity to learn new skills and build experience that will feed into their growth as artists. The project’s activities cover opportunities to create new works of art, display said works, exchange experiences, develop creative processes in a professional manner, and create contemporary attitudes towards art itself. These activities are carried out in tandem with studies of each artist’s body of work, including analyses and discussions on interpretation and artistic value as well as public access and participation.
