100 Tonson Foundation is accepting applications for the second "Open Call For Art Projects". A complete proposal with a recent or newly developed project should be submitted by April 30.

Eligible applicants are Thai contemporary artists in any discipline, Thai or international curators and scholars working on a project about Thai contemporary art, as well as international contemporary artists who want to present their collaborative projects with Thai contemporary artists, Thai curators or Thai scholars.

The selected project will be exhibited at 100 Tonson Foundation in Bangkok for six months from November this year to May 2025. It will also receive marketing and organising support from the foundation's team and also an exhibition budget of 500,000 baht.

The project is one of the grant programmes that aim to elevate the stature of Thai contemporary art further internationally and support the progress of the local art community. The first "Open Call For Art Projects" was a resounding success in 2022.

The selected artists were Savinee Buranasilapin and Tom Dannecker from Thingsmatter, who created a remarkable site-specific architecture-based installation, Field Collapse, together with six well-attended public programmes.

Beyond a physical exhibition space, 100 Tonson Foundation bolsters and nurtures Thai art's infrastructure by giving generous grants to artists, curators, writers, researchers, and art institutions to fulfil independent projects and exhibitions worldwide.

This year, it plans to build upon its collaborative projects through funding and partnering with the Bangkok Art Biennale Foundation to showcase The Spirits Of Maritime Crossing, curated by Apinan Poshyananda.

This major project from Southeast Asia will be part of the 60th International Art Exhibition at Venice Biennale 2024.
