A leading figure in both contemporary film and art, Apichatpong Weerasethakul (born 1970) has developed a singular, realist-surrealist style in which the portrayal of the everyday alongside supernatural elements suggests a distortion between fact and folklore, the subconscious and the exposed and various disparities of power. His work reveals stories often excluded in history, in and out of Thailand: voices of the poor and the ill, marginalized humans and those silenced and censored for personal and political reasons. This new solo exhibition uniquely presents a selected survey of rarely seen experimental short films and video installations by Weerasethakul, alongside his photography, sketches and archival materials that explore threads of sociopolitical commentary. His passionate positions on class, labor, sexuality and spirituality contribute to a body of work concerned with ethics, power, science and liberation. “The Serenity of Madness” is structured into distinct sections: one corresponding to the artist’s private world, peopled with friends, family and long-time collaborators; another takes up the public sphere but with a more abstract dimension of experience, utilizing light, memory and temporal, spatial and spiritual displacement. The survey culminates with a selection of recent work addressing the social reality in his homeland. Curated by Gridthiya Gaweewong, a longtime collaborator of the filmmaker’s, this exhibition will be accompanied by a retrospective of the director’s theatrical releases in the Samuel Roberts Noble Theater. It will also include a special opening event for the Museum’s newly launched Film Society. “Apichatpong Weerasethakul: The Serenity of Madness” is a traveling exhibition curated by Gridthiya Gaweewong and produced by Independent Curators International (ICI), New York. The exhibition and tour are made possible, in part, with the generous support from MAIIAM Contemporary Art Museum, Chiang Mai; the ICI Board of Trustees and ICI’s International Forum.

2018 Native American Cultural Symposium: The Theme of the 2018 Symposium is “Reunification through Reinvention: The Creative Visions of Contemporary Native America.” The Symposium will bring together an array of Native Elders and Youth for a weekend of performances, presentations, and workshops. MONAH seeks to renew the connection between the historical traditions presented in its permanent collection and modern Native peoples. By utilizing community and museum space, visitors and presenters alike will be invited into opportunities for understanding, respect, and increased awareness of cultural context by promoting Native art, performance, writing, fashion, cuisine, and film. MONAH will host a number of activities throughout the weekend. In partnership with Fulcrum Press, the Museum will be home to readings, storytellers, including renowned storyteller Gayle Ross, and meet-and-greets with the Symposium presenters and performers. The museum will host workshops covering topics from Lakota Bow Making, led by Joseph Marshall III, to a writer’s workshop. The Symposium will conclude at the Museum’s front lawn with a farm-to-table dining experience. This year, MONAH is joining hands with Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. Kicking off the Symposium, Crystal Bridges will host the Thursday night film, featuring-- Rumble: The Indians who Rocked the World, winner of the Sundance World Cinema Documentary Jury Award: Masterful Storytelling. MONAH will also join Crystal Bridges’ free Garden Party and evening Forest Concert, featuring our roster of storytellers, performers, and presenters. MONAH has chosen The Record to host the Symposium on Friday, June 15, with a solo speaking engagement with Xiuhtezcatl Martinez in the afternoon. Xiuhtezcatl is our youngest presenter at 17 years old and the inspiration for the theme of this year’s event. At 15 he has addressed the United Nations--twice. He has a new book out “We Rise” and is recording with Quincy Jones. The evening Symposium featuring Suzan Shown Harjo as the keynote speaker who has received the Presidential Medal of Freedom will join our symposium panelists.
