Bangkok Art Biennale (BAB) is a biannual art festival set in the capital of Thailand.
BAB spans across a period of 4 months in which the bustling city of Bangkok is transformed into a live hub that celebrates art, creativity, and culture.
Visitors are able to immerse themselves in an array of artworks and performances from a diverse range of artists, both local and international, throughout the heart of Bangkok, in galleries, public spaces, and iconic landmarks
In addition, they are accompanied by conferences, workshops, guided visits, and publications to ensure a memorable and holistic experience.
This year marks the second installment of BAB which commences from 29 October 2020 through to 31 January 2021.
We hope to see you at BAB!

In this series of construction workers portraits, Tooten transforms local and migrant workers who are often overlooked as anonymous into people with pride and dignity. Their life is always at risk during their work at building sites.
Despite the hooded mask, these laborers suffer from dust, noise, pollution, and hardship.
For the Bangkok Art Biennale, Tooten’s portraits of construction workers are placed at public sights such as department stores and in high-rise buildings, a reminder that the labor workers are the essential part of a system that built the Bangkok, we are all living in today.
In 2018, Tooten was selected as one of the Artists for the first Bangkok Art Biennale by Artistic Director Prof. Dr. Apinan Poshyananda and this curator team, to display and screen this Worker Portrait photographs + Videos all over multiple locations within Bangkok.
