It may be best-known for its hedonistic side, but the city hosts a thriving community of artists and some impressive showcases for their works.
Often overshadowed by its formidable gastronomic and nightlife scenes, Bangkok’s nascent artistic movement is quickly becoming one of the city’s biggest draws. As Thai painters, sculptors, and installation artists rise in prominence, the city has created a number of galleries to help bring their work to an affluent international audience. The following spots range from the achingly hip to the truly avant-garde and are a must for travelling culture-hounds.
One of the slickest galleries in the city, this stark white space’s mercurial interiors serve as a blank canvas for exhibitions spotlighting everything from street art to video installations. Supamas Phahulo, one of the driving forces behind the Thailand Creative Design Centre (TCDC), and his partner curator Akapol Sudasna are behind this ambitious project.
It may require an appointment to visit, but the expertly curated exhibitions in this gallery housed in a striking mansion in Sathorn more than merit the extra effort. Restaurateur Frederic Meyer and and French diplomat Jeremy Opitresco combined their considerable talents and social networks to launch this space.
This world-class gallery, the first to represent Thailand at Art Basel, Switzerland, packs in a mix of global heavy-hitters such as Yayoi Kusama and Damien Hirst, as well as highly regarded local artists. The elegantly minimalist space designed by Christian Liaigre is the perfect showcase for the wide diversity of works.
As the name suggests, this quirky gallery resides in a building once used to produce Asia’s most ubiquitous condiment. Nowadays, it plays host to all sorts of events ranging from raucous opening parties with free-flowing wine to more subdued exhibitions. The curatorial team here are also connected with Speedy Grandma, another institution where Bangkok’s cool kids go to see and be seen.
Located on Soi Nana, a street in Chinatown where refurbished shophouses are now home to trendy bars and restaurants, this multipurpose space organises everything from rooftop paella parties to photography exhibitions. Their opening events serve as de facto gatherings for the city’s creative community.
