大放异彩Time To Shine

想看当今最前沿、崭新的当代艺术展,不必老远飞到欧美大都会,在邻近的东南亚国家就能看得到。在这之前,尽管当代东南亚艺术品备受国际买家青睐,然而因东南亚缺乏国际水平的展出,让许多杰出艺术家很难得到更大的曝光率。近两年,在有钱有谋的私人收藏家的推动下,一家又一家崭新私人美术馆在东南亚各城市崛起,赶在国家文化机构之前弥补这空缺。无可置疑,这一两年是东南亚私人美术馆的兴盛时代,东南亚当代艺术的推展也归功于这些热血独立推手。随着本区域至少有五家当代美术馆开幕,今明两年都是艺术发烧友满东南亚飞,抢看东南亚当代美术品的大好时机。

Ho Chi Minh City
The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre

由多个集装箱组建而成,胡志明市去年开幕的The Factory当代艺术中心位于Thao Dien 2区,中心总面积100平方米,外观展现粗犷的工业建筑风格,30度斜倚入口的长方形集装箱是中心的一大设计特色。除了展览厅、表演黑箱之外,中心还有艺术类图书馆、书店和共用工作空间,非常符合崇尚自由的创意工作者。艺术中心以当代艺术为展出主力,去年3月开幕时便展出了表现现代人对科技又爱又抗拒的心理的装置艺术展“Technophobe”,以及当代雕刻家Bui Cong Khanh使用菠萝蜜木雕刻的大型空间装置作品“Dislocate”,反映出越南当代社会的矛盾。

Bangkok
O Museum

曼谷大学主席兼大学美术馆馆长、泰国饮料大王、艺人和人寿保险企业家Petch Osathanugrah名列亚洲十大收藏家,他正在筹建自己的美术馆O Museum,将自己收藏的500多件艺术品与当代巨匠村上隆和Damien Hirst等人的作品一起展出。博物馆将设在曼谷市中心Rama IV路,预计占地1万2800平方米。Petch去年接受泰国《国家报》(The Nation)访问时透露,O Museum要在数年后才能完成。在这之前,他将在泰国国家体育馆附近的Ramkhamhaeng路上一块2000平方米的地皮,投入1亿泰铢(400万新元),聘请泰国建筑名家Supermachine兴建一栋美术仓库,以展示与修复他的艺术藏品。这家“艺术仓库”预计将在2018年开幕,为O Museum造势。

Chiang Mai
MAIIAM Contemporary Art Museum

清迈首个当代美术馆去年中开幕,由泰国建筑事务所Allzone操刀设计,半圆形的外墙嵌满镜片,远看像面宁静的湖水,成了美术馆的注册商标。美术馆背后推手是1998年从巴黎移居泰国的画廊经营者Jean-Michel Beurdeley与他已故的妻子Patsri Bunnag,他儿子Eric Bunnag Booth也有份经营。美术馆取名MAIIAM,在泰文是“全新”的意思,象征美术馆展示泰国当代最前沿的艺术作品。美术馆展出馆主个人收藏,以及泰国新晋及杰出当代艺术家作品,包括Montien Boonma、Kamin Lertchaiprasert、

Jakarta
Museum MACAN

印度尼西亚首个现代与当代美术馆将在今年11月7日,配合同月展开的雅加达双年展开幕。MACAN美术馆由印尼著名艺术藏家与慈善家翁玮光(Haryanto Adikoesoemo)创设,将用来展出他过去25年来收藏的800件现代与当代艺术作品。美术馆占地4000平方米,其中一半是展廊,另外500平方米是室内雕塑花园。开幕重头戏《世界随着艺术转动》(Art Turns. World Turns. Exploring the Collection of Museum MACAN)将从这800件藏品选出90件,其中包括印尼艺术家Raden Saleh、S. Sudjojono、FX Harsono、Arahmaini,以及数十年未曾曝光的Sudjana Kerton、Trubus Soedarsono和Nashar的作品,与首次到印尼展出的国际名家如草间弥生、Jeff Koons、Damien Hirst、Mark Rothko、Robert Rauschenberg同场展出,进行一场“印尼美术史与世界美术史的对话”。

Bangkok
Asean Cultural Gateway

耗资37亿泰铢(约1.5亿新元),由泰国文化部打造的泰国文化中心将以“亚细安文化闸道”(Asean Cultural Gateway)之名问世。泰国文化部本身收藏超过700件泰国当代艺术品,近年还不断投入资金扩大收藏数目。文化中心位于曼谷Ratchadaphisek路,内部具体内容及正式开幕日期仍未对外宣布,但中心刻意强调亚细安,明显猜得出日后的展览内容和项目不单专注于泰国作品,也包括亚细安艺术品。

One no longer has to fly all the way to Europe or the United States to get your fix of cutting-edge contemporary art. These days, a quick stop in neighbouring cities will do just as well. 
While modern South-east Asian art has been gaining favour with international collectors, the lack of world-class venues means many talented artists struggle to gain exposure. In recent years, however, collectors with deep pockets have invested in several private art museums in this part of the world, giving artists a bigger platform and the regional art scene a boost. 
With at least five more museums slated to open, art enthusiasts will have plenty to look forward to this year and next. 

Ho Chi Minh City
The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre

The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre, made up of several shipping containers, stands out for its unhewn industrial vibe. It fills a gap in southern Vietnam’s largest city, which has been lacking an arts centre with exhibition and performance facilities. Located in Thao Dien in District 2, the independently run centre has drawn a steady number of local visitors despite its distance from the city centre. The 100-sq-m centre is also home to an arts-centric library, a bookstore and shared working spaces.

Bangkok
O Museum

Petch Osathanugrah not only is the chairman of Bangkok University and head of its art museum, he is also a performing artist as well as the owner of a life insurance company. Soon, he will add museum owner to the mix. An avid art enthusiast said to be among Asia’s top 10 collectors, he is building a private museum, called the O Museum, to exhibit the 500-plus artworks in his collection, alongside works by the likes of Takashi Murakami and Damien Hirst. It is expected to occupy 12,800 sq m and will take a few years to complete. 
In the meantime, he is setting up another space called Art Warehouse, at a cost of 100 million baht (S$4 million), on Ramkhamhaeng Road. The facility is where Osathanugrah will showcase and restore the works in his collection. Art Warehouse is slated to open next year.

 

Chiang Mai
MAIIAM Contemporary Art Museum

Chatchai Puipia、Araya Rasdjarmrearnsook、Navin Rawanchaikul、Natee Utarit、Vasan Sitthiket、Pinaree Sanpitak与Rirkrit等。
MAIIAM Contemporary Art Museum, Chiang Mai’s first museum of contemporary art, opened in July last year. It has a curved mirrored cladding that evokes the calm surface of a lake from afar. Converted from a 3,000-sq-m warehouse, the museum is the brainchild of Jean-Michel Beurdeley, who moved from Paris to Thailand in 1998, and his late wife Patsri Bunnag. The word “maiiam” means “all new” in Thai and is a reference to the cutting-edge works that are on display here. Items from the owners’ collection are shown, including works by emerging and established Thai contemporary artists like Montien Boonma, Kamin Lertchaiprasert, Chatchai Puipia, Araya Rasdjarmrearnsook and Navin Rawanchaikul.

Bangkok
Asean Cultural Gateway

The Thailand Cultural Centre, a project by the Thai Ministry of Culture costing 3.7 billion baht (S$150 million), will make its debut as the “Asean Cultural Gateway”. Its official opening date has not been announced, but the centre has signalled that it will promote the Asean identity, so exhibitions will not focus only on Thai works. The Ministry of Culture owns more 700 pieces of contemporary Thai art and has been expanding its collection in recent years.
