23 Jan These Are Bangkok’s 10 Best Contemporary Art Galleries | Prestige
Bangkok is a city full of artistry – from the grand and ornate temples that line the banks of the Chao Phraya River, to the wild graffiti murals that add a dash of colour to the mean streets of Bang Rak (and beyond). In-between these two extremes there’s a thriving gallery scene in the city, and art shows featuring both Thai and international talents are constantly coming and going, which is a positive boon for both serious collectors and casual onlookers who just like to see what’s new and inspiring.
There are literally dozens and dozens of worthwhile galleries in downtown Bangkok alone, which makes picking the best of the bunch something of a tough call. However, this list of Bangkok’s 10 best gallery spots below consistently offer exhibitions that never fail to be both engaging and intriguing.
Founded by Subhashok Angsuvarnsiri, an avid supporter of Thai contemporary art and a collector for many decades, S.A.C. Subhashok The Arts Centre is a two-storey gallery space in the Phrom Phong district that actively promotes young and emerging Thai and Southeast Asian contemporary artists – often hosting two shows simultaneously in their ample interior. Head curator Linjie Zhou has a knack for finding the most extraordinary talents, who collectively represent a vast range of styles, disciplines and techniques. Open Tuesday to Friday from 10am to 6pm, and weekends from 11am to 6pm.
