The Managing Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art has the immense task of making this museum of mostly personal but nonetheless large collection of her father’s art relevant to her generation and beyond. She co-founded AFFA last year, which demonstrated her focus on the task, though it remains to be seen if MOCA, under Bencharongkul’s stewardship, can go the distance. When not running the museum she occupies her time with entrepreneurial start-ups that are heavily promoted on social media from her Pette’s Box concept to Pette’s Balloons and recently Pette’s t-shirts.
