NEWS ON THE FERRY GALLERY


ABOUT THE FERRY GALLERY


The Ferry Gallery is a public contemporary art  space on privately  owned  ferry  operating on the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok. 


The gallery was founded on January 2014 by  Thai artist and entrepreneur, Kawita
Vatanayankur, as a mean to promote the  contemporary art scene in the capital city  and to bring contemporary art to the masses.

The sheer number of daily cross-­river commuters  puts The Ferry Gallery in a special spot where large  number of audience is guaranteed and often  repeated,  thus  creating  opportunity  for  maximum  exposure  for  the  works  exhibited.    

Vatanajyankur has high plans and expectation for the  project as a first step in democratizing art and being  a game changer in Thailand’s contemporary art scene.  

Vision: 


• To initiate a global creative exchange in  Thailand through cross collaboration with  international artists.   


• To be a pioneer in art tourism in Thailand  through the innovation of the “art  cruise”  concept of creative experience. 


Mission: 


• To bring art to the everyday people

  

Key objectives: 


• To create noise and excitement around the  event in order to grab and maintain attention    

• To create a community around The Ferry  Gallery 

 

• To create a creative space for conversation
