100 Tonson Gallery is dedicated to the profiling of contemporary art. Working across regional and international boundaries, the gallery has proven a preeminent, global force for the showcasing and reconsideration of global art practices.
The first gallery from Thailand and the only one from Southeast Asia exhibited in the prestigious art event, Art Basel in Switzerland in 2011. Cited in 2007 by Contemporary Art magazine (London) as ranking among the top 50 emerging galleries from around the world, the gallery has been the pioneer in various fields including showcasing installation art, video installation and conceptual context when it was rarely practiced among galleries and has set the direction since..
Named after its street address, 100 Tonson Gallery occupies a pristine minimalist space conceived by the noted French designer Christian Liaigre. The gallery's roster as well as its scholarly and educational programs, include renowned artists Yayoi Kusama, Damien Hirst, Louise Bourgeois, Araya Rasdjarmrearnsook, Chatchai Puipia, Phaptawan Suwanakudt, Pinaree Sanpitak, Sakarin Krue-On, and Rirkrit Tiravanija, among numerous others.
100 Tonson Gallery proactively features its artists in local and international venues and supports their dynamic development and participation in a global contemporary context. Its current selection of emerging Thai artists is another testimony of the gallery's widespread success, with Yuree Kensaku, Porntaweesak Rimsakul, Prateep Suthathongthai and Wit Pimkanchanapong rounding out an ever-widening circle whose works have entered distinguished international museums' collections. In bringing Thai and regional artists to international grounds, the gallery has participated in various art fairs in Basel (Volta, ArtBasel), Hong Kong (ArtHK, ArtBasel HK), Art Dubai, Singapore (Singapore Artfair, Showcase Singapore, ArtStage) Shanghai (SHContemporary) and Beijing (CIGE).
