Artists in this exhibition: Chatchai Puipia

100 Tonson Gallery cordially invite you to the opening reception of an project “A Leg Up Society" (Thai name: Chom Rom Kon Mai Ao Nai ) by Chatchai Puipia on September Saturday 20, 2008 at 6 pm.

This is Puipia’s first exhibition in many years; it also is the first time that Puipia works in collaboration with other artists in the area of film, photography, sculpture, video and literature.

Apart from sculpture installation that will transform the visual presentation of 100 Tonson Gallery in the next several months, the content or focus of the exhibitions may vary according to different inputs of the collaborative artists. The aim of the project is to raise funds as grants for artists and writers, either to enable them to create their artworks or sometimes producing/ presenting something that would impact art society on a larger scale.

Viewers are welcome to visit the gallery to see A Leg Up Society in the next several months as usual (without entrance fee). For those who would like to be more involved, this project will be open to the public to apply for membership. Details about membership applications and benefits will be announced soon but the very least that the member would receive is the publication produced and edited by Puipia.

A Leg Up Society will be on view at the galllery from September 2008 - January 2009,

"Chapter 1: Count me in" will be from September 20 to October 26, 2008
