If you go to one art exhibition this weekend (Jun 23-25), make it Hotel Art Fair.

Since 2013 Farmgroup design consultancy firm has been taking over hotels across the city in collaboration with Bangkok’s top galleries. Each participant gets their own room to curate basically however they choose, and this year has one of the biggest lineups yet.

Since it’s taking place at Volve Hotel on Sukhumvit Soi 53 this year, you won’t have to trek far from Thonglor to check out exhibits from Gallery Seescape, Atta Gallery, Gallery Ver, H Gallery, Bangkok City City, YenakArt Villa and 23 others. Find the full list of participants at fb.com/HotelArtFair.

You’ll find us in the YenAkart room, five glasses of prosecco down and having our picture sketched by a robot artist called Paul who’ll be doing portraits all weekend. There will also be DJs throughout the weekend including Maft Sai (Fri) and Pichy (Sat). 

This is the fifth time Bangkok’s hosted the Hotel Art Fair. As always, admission is free. Check out some highlights below:
