Since 1994, upon founding his own artistic production company, leading Thai contemporary artist Navin Rawanchaikul has been working to bridge the divide between art and life in his wide-ranging projects. His works, as he writes, “rely heavily on team spirit and collaboration,” and include performances, films, public art projects, comic books, merchandise, and a “political party,” whose platform is to connect people named Navin worldwide. Such tongue-in-cheek projects stem from Rawanchaikul’s discontent with what he sees as the insularity of the art world. He wants to transform art into a product for mass consumption, without compromising its integrity. This democratic goal catalyzed the experiment that launched his career, “Navin Gallery Bangkok” (begun 1995), a taxicab-cum-gallery that surprised unsuspecting riders with a mobile art experience, and that models a vastly more generous system for distributing and presenting works of art.
