This catalogue accompanies the Mit Jai Inn exhibition: Dreamworld (15 September — 21 November 2021)
Dreamworld is the first major solo exhibition in Europe by artist Mit Jai Inn (b.1960, Chiang Mai). A leading figure of contemporary art in Thailand, Mit is known for his colourful artworks that merge painting and sculpture. The exhibition features recent and new works made for Ikon which embody his vision of art “as a utopian dream within everyday life”.
This publication includes full-colour documentation of the exhibition and recent work, alongside projects from the 1980s, when Mit was living in Vienna and working with Franz West. Essays by Ikon Curator Melanie Pocock, art historian Simon Soon, and critic and curator Brian Curtin, as well as an interview with the artist by Gridthiya Gaweewong, Artistic Director, The Jim Thompson Art Center, Bangkok.
Published by Ikon and ArtAsiaPacific Foundation.
This exhibition is supported by Birmingham School of Art and Centre for Chinese Visual Arts, Birmingham City University. It is accompanied by a comprehensive monograph on Mit’s life and work, published by Ikon and ArtAsiaPacific Foundation.
Dreamworld tours to MAIIAM Contemporary Art Museum, Chiang Mai (8 September 2022 – 28 April 2023).
