BACC is proud to present I Am You, a contemporary art exhibition featuring the works of Vasan Sitthiket. This Vasan exhibition gathers together more than 100 master works.

The uniqueness of Vasan’s paintings lies in its attractive, but challenging nature. His personally created free-form artistic language and diversified patterns of movement respond to the contemporary societal issues at hand. Through the elements of sarcasm, satire, and implicative comparison, his works are shaped and tempered to perfection by the artist’s well-versed artistic expertise in exploring various means of expression, which also include various initiatives with artist groups and activists from both private and public sectors who fight for societal, political, and environmental justice. Vasan has been one of the Thai artist representatives to participate in various international exhibitions in Australia, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, and United States of America.

I Am You exhibition presents works spanning from the year 1975 to the present day; starting with a retrospective look into the beginning of the artist’s journey to understand the essence of his ideas and works through his present participation in various social activities.

In addition to the narration of Vasan Sitthiket’s work concepts and life as an artist and activist, educational activities such as Curator’s Tour, Artist’s Talk, Critic’s Talk and workshops are also available at the exhibition.
