Southeast Asia Globe - - Closeup / Delving Deeper Into Arts And Culture -

This cut­ting-edge con­tem­po­rary art space is tucked away down leafy Sathorn Soi 12, in­side a strik­ing late-19th cen­tury wooden villa. Plac­ing its spot­light on Asia's most cre­ative tal­ents, the mod­ern gallery isn't afraid to push bound­aries. It has ex­hib­ited con­tro­ver­sial work by artists such as Bangkok's Jakkai Siributr, whose de­tailed wo­ven tex­tiles ex­plore the po­lit­i­cal in­sta­bil­ity of Thai­land, as well as painter Mit Jai Inn from Chi­ang Mai, and pho­tog­ra­pher Tada Hengsap­kul, whose haunt­ing and of­ten-provoca­tive work ref­er­ences youth and sex­u­al­ity, pol­i­tics and the naked hu­man body.
