Per commemorare il 30° anniversario dello stabilimento delle relazioni diplomatiche Thailandia-Lettonia, una mostra From Life to Arts: The Reflections of Thai Communities through Local Thai Contemporary Artists and Textiles è in mostra nella Sala Bosse al Museo d’Arte RIGA BOURSE a Riga (Doma laukums 6) dal 22 aprile al 26 giugno 2022.

La Thailandia è una terra di diversità culturale con una popolazione di circa 70 milioni di persone. Viaggiando dalla parte settentrionale alla parte meridionale del paese, ognuno può sperimentare culture ricche e diverse, credenze e identità uniche.

I contatti interpersonali tra la Thailandia e la Lettonia sono una parte importante delle strette relazioni tra i due paesi, con quasi 10.000 turisti lettoni che visitano la Thailandia ogni anno, così come un certo numero di lettoni che vivono in Thailandia e thailandesi che vivono e studiano in Lettonia.

L’Ambasciata Reale Thailandese a Stoccolma insieme al Museo d’Arte RIGA BOURSE presentano con orgoglio la mostra che rappresenta l’autenticità culturale di diverse parti della Thailandia attraverso dipinti e tessuti. L’esposizione comprende due parti: opere d’arte di artisti contemporanei tailandesi e tessuti tailandesi. Quattro artisti contemporanei thailandesi Angkrit Ajchariyasophon, Jehabdulloh Jehsorhoh, Tanupon En-on e Jakkai Siributr attraverso le loro opere riflettono sulle lotte dell’anno passato, le ispirazioni dalla cultura, dalla natura e dagli stili di vita delle comunità locali e le loro opinioni su ciò che è la Thailandia. I tessuti thailandesi in mostra provengono dal nord, dal nord-est, dal sud e dalla parte centrale della Thailandia e mostrano varie tecniche di tessitura e colorazione della seta, così come una varietà di splendidi modelli.

To commemorate the 30th anniversary of the establishment of Thailand–Latvia diplomatic relations, an exhibition From Life to Arts: The Reflections of Thai Communities through Local Thai Contemporary Artists and Textiles is on view in the Bosse Hall at the Art Museum RIGA BOURSE in Riga (Doma laukums 6) from 22 April until 26 June 2022.

Thailand is a land of cultural diversity with a population of around 70 million. Travelling from the northern part to the southern part of the country, everyone can experience rich and diverse cultures, beliefs, and unique identities.

People-to-people contact between Thailand and Latvia is an important part of the close relations between the two countries, with almost 10,000 Latvian tourists visiting Thailand each year as well as a number of Latvians living in Thailand and Thais living and studying in Latvia.

The Royal Thai Embassy in Stockholm together with the Art Museum RIGA BOURSE proudly present the exhibition depicting cultural authenticity from different parts of Thailand through paintings and textiles. The exposition comprises two parts: artworks from Thai contemporary artists and textiles of Thailand. Four Thai contemporary artists Angkrit Ajchariyasophon, Jehabdulloh Jehsorhoh, Tanupon En-on and Jakkai Siributr through their works reflect on past year’s struggles, inspirations from the culture, nature and lifestyles of local communities and their views on what is Thainess. The Thai textiles on display are from the north, north-eastern, south, and central part of Thailand and showcase various silk weaving and colouring techniques, as well as a variety of gorgeous patterns.
