After having skipped its usual annual time earlier this year due to the pandemic, a night of gallery hopping returns to the Bangkok art scene, and it’s tonight!
Slated to run tonight at 10 venues across several neighborhoods – Silom, Sathorn, Charoen Krung and Bang Rak – Gallery Hopping Night is taking place this evening with stenciled street art, photographs, prints and multimedia installations.
Participating galleries include British drum ‘n bass icon Goldie’s Aurum Gallery, riverside creative space The Jam Factory, 120-year-old school-turned art hub Att 19, Surasak art-bar space Jam and plant-based eatery Broccoli Revolution on Soi Charoen Krung 42/1.
The Kolophone, a recently opened library inside Central: The Original Store, will showcase archives about Charoen Krung Road’s post-World War II era, when international travelers and locals mingled, and how the first waves of imported visual cultures affected Thai prints at the time. See more details about the exhibition here.
Over at the River City shopping center, an upstairs gallery shows images captured by Phichai Kaewvichit, a motorbike taxi rider-turned-celeb photographer whose Instagram now has more than 86,000 followers. His exhibition Unlock features 30 photographs that detail distinct chapters of his life en route to becoming the artist he is today.
Gallery Hopping Night starts this evening. A map of the participating venues is available online.
