As the foremost international exhibition of contemporary art in Thailand, the Office of Contemporary Art and Culture (OCAC), Ministry of Culture in Bangkok, is organising the First Thailand Biennale. As a national initiative of contemporary art, the organising institution of this biennial is planned to choose different cities and sites in Thailand for each edition. Unlike conventional art museum exhibitions, Thailand’s first Biennale will be staged outdoor on natural sites in Krabi.

Krabi, with its majestic mountain ranges, beautiful beaches, stunning coasts, and hundreds of fertile islands, is truly the wonderland of the Andaman. However, it is not only these splendid natural resources, but also a long history, hospitality, amiability, and a simple way of life of the people of Krabi that charm and attract wanderlusters from all over the globe, making Krabi one of the most famous destinations in the world. Renowned for the rich in nature, hospitality and history, Krabi will serve as the most exciting site for international exhibition of contemporary art in Thailand.
