ART FIELDS: The Ferry Gallery
The Ferry Gallery is a public contemporary art space on privately owned ferry operating on the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok.
The gallery was founded on January 2014 by Thai artist and entrepreneur, Kawita Vatanayankur, as a mean to promote the contemporary art scene in the capital city and to bring contemporary art to the masses.
The sheer number of daily crossriver commuters puts The Ferry Gallery in a special spot where large number of audience is guaranteed and often repeated, thus creating opportunity for maximum exposure for the works exhibited.
Vatanajyankur has high plans and expectation for the project as a first step in democratizing art and being a game changer in Thailand’s contemporary art scene.
