Lyla gallery proudly brings together cross generational transnational border breaking international artists. The gallery is situated in Chiang Mai but this does not locate the gallery’s ambitious projects. Having a strong curatorial focus from within and outside of Asia it seeks to present the current situation. With its humble location in Thailand Lyla gallery seeks to represent and present the best of Thai and international art.
Continuing our commitment to support platforms that reflect contemporary art practice, we are hosting a one-night event, with Thai and French performance artists on 26 February 2015, 6.30 pm onward.
This event is a joint project between Lyla Gallery and Toot Yung Art Center. For more information and press inquiries, please contact [email protected] or 084-3881488.
