Currencies of the Contemporary
In probably the first serious study of Thai art this century, the author, an experienced curator of Thai and other art exhibitions, is mainly concerned with the interplay between global pressures on the better known artists and their attempts to retain their 'Thainess.' He sets this conflict against a backdrop of the weakened sovereignty of the Thai monarchy and the political and economic troubles that have beset the country this century. 274 pages.
