Musik is a curatorial and art collecting project by Dallas-based Artist, Art Collector, and Curator Narong Tintamusik. Tintamusik is passionate in supporting emerging artists (without gallery representation) by offering opportunities in-person and virtually. He hopes this project will help up and coming artists provide a space to exhibit work, but also connect them to other artists, art collectors, and curators.
Virtual exhibitions (primarily solo shows) will be presented each year through invitational and open-call processes. The artists are free to showcase works without fear of censorship and inhibition.
Narong Tintamusik is an artist based in Dallas, TX. His work speak about his life as a sexual abuse survivor. Through painting and its iterations, he reconciles the innocence lost during his youth and makes attempts to understand how past trauma reincarnates into various forms in the present. He lived in Bangkok, Thailand for 10 years and obtained his Biology undergraduate degree from the University of Texas at Dallas with a minor in visual arts. He has exhibited in group shows locally in Dallas, TX and beyond including New York, Canada, and Germany. He is currently a part of Artist Co-op 500X Gallery and had his first solo there in early 2020. He has been the recipient the DeGoyler Memorial Fund from the Dallas Museum of Art in 2015.
In addition to being an artist, Tintamusik is an art collector and curator where his focus often lies on the ideas of identity, queerness, sexuality, Asian diaspora, figuration, abstraction, fashion, love, and nature. He is an advocate for emerging artists in terms of collecting their works early in their careers. His curatorial projects include Queer Me Now: The Queer Body and Gaze at 500X Gallery and The MAC in Dallas, TX and Human/Nature at Fort Worth Community Arts Center in Fort Worth, TX. He also started Musik, a virtual curatorial platform that offer solo exhibitions to artists without gallery representation through invitational and open calls.
