The 100 m2 of exhibition space proposes highly curated
exhibitions every 3 months, with a special focus on Thai artists from all
regions of the country.
Artistic director Myrtille Tibayrenc has been working closely with a carefully selected group of artists since 2008, following their practice and evolution. Now reckoned artists such as photographer Tada Hengsapkul or conceptual artist Piyarat Piyapongwiwat both made their debut exhibition with Toot Yung.
The center also acts as the representative of confirmed artists such as painters Pakitsilp Varamissara, Tawan Wattuya and sculptor Haritorn Akarapat. Tibayrenc also works with foreign artists, launching in 2010 the works of French photographer Claude Estebe, and promoting in Thailand since 2011 French performance artist Skall.
Occasionally, the center invites foreign artists in residence to develop large-scale projects hand in hand with local artisans, highlighting the region’s ancestral craft practices and local materials such as bamboo, silk, teak wood or silver.

The Toot Yung Art Center is proud to include for the first time this year Thai contemporary sculptor Sommai Ma-On as one of its represented artists. “Reminiscence”, a selection of old and recent works, will give an overview of the artist’s refined body of works.
The latest paintings of French artist, Myrtille Tibayrenc, will be exhibited at the famous Smalls bar at the corner of Suan Phlu soi 1 in Bangkok. Set as street windows the exhibition will allow passers by to enjoy new and older works by the provocative painter.
