Artworks from Harit Srikhao's "Whitewash" exhibition

On Jun 16, the military visited two galleries near Sathorn, Cartel Artspace and Gallery Ver on Narathiwat Rajanagarindra Soi 22, and ordered Gallery Ver to remove five works relating to the political protests of 2010, as part of Harit Srikhao's Whitewash exhibition. Jirat ‘Tae’ Ratthawongjirakul, 29, has managed the gallery for the past six years, and was there when the raid took place. Here, he discusses exactly what happened, as well as the state of artistic expression in Bangkok.

All the highlights from the exhibition which reinvented viewing art in Bangkok.
