KORAKRIT ARUNANONDCHAI

Korakrit Arunanondchai (b. 1986, Bangkok, Thailand) lives and works in Thailand and New York. A leading international conceptual and installation artist, Arunanondchai blends pop culture, music, video, painting, and performance, resulting in immersive multimedia experiences. Often collaborating with other artists and family members, he engages themes of history, memory, and self-representation. The artist moved to the U.S. to study at the Rhode Island School of Design and Columbia University under renowned relational aesthetics artist Rirkrit Tiravanija, and this experience inhabiting two cultures has come to inform his work. His notable use of denim as both fashion and artistic medium resonates with his experience as a cultural transplant, using the fabric to symbolize the spread of western culture around the world. Receiving his first solo museum show at New York’s MoMA PS1 in 2014, Arunanondchai’s work has been featured in solo exhibitions at the Mistake Room in Los Angeles (2014), the Palais de Tokyo in Paris (2015) and the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma in Helsinki (2017).
