Curating in Asia
The mission to establish Navinland was begun by founding father Chairman Navin back in 2006 with the launch of the Navin Party. Chairman Navin is also known as Navin Rawanchaikul, an artist from Chiang Mai in northern Thailand. A Thai national of Indian origins, Navin has always had issues with his identity. He has embarked upon an epic journey to discover who he really is. One day while visiting India, the land of his parents, he met the great guru Navin Mahaprabhu, who taught him to be at peace with himself. He finally learnt what his special purpose was, to unite all the Navins of the world. Navin has a dream that one day all Navins will rise up and live out the true meaning of Navinity, that all Navins are created equal. In the historic year of 2011, upon the soil of the Giardini in Venice, Navinland was declared as a borderless community bringing people together around the shared name of Navin.
