  • Bangkok's 5 best new art spaces of 2016
    Gallery Ver

Galerie Adler Bangkok 

Set on the ground floor of the recently renovated mall, the space is designed to pay homage to the style of Dutch painter Piet Mondrian and his signature pattern of intertwining white and colored grids which spread across the floor and walls of the gallery. The art itself is displayed across a series of rooms connected by tunnels in a minimalistic style. In collaboration with its sister branch in Paris, the gallery selects highlight pieces from artists, rather than entire series, and presents them all in the same space to create a dynamic and engaging gallery.
M/F, Siam Discovery, Rama 4 Rd., 02-106-8495. Open daily 10am-10:30pm. BTS Siam.
 

Gallery Ver 

Sathorn’s latest contemporary art gallery comes in the form of a large, open space with airy high ceilings perfect for welcoming large-scale artworks. The gallery dedicates itself to exhibiting conceptual, often confronting, artworks in an attempt to promote more experimental art in Bangkok. Also attached to the building is Tentacles, an art space-slash-cafe that frequently hosts art workshops, exhibitions and activities while serving up coffee and snacks.
Narathiwas Soi 15 (Sathu Pradit), 089-988-5890. Open Tue-Sun noon-6pm.
 

Tang Contemporary Art

The long-standing art gallery and institution that was previously at Silom Galleria finds itself a new home. In keeping with the mission of its branches in Beijing and Hong Kong, the new space focuses on showcasing the modern works of contemporary art heavyweights from China and Southeast Asia. Its upcoming exhibition, dubbed “Angel’s Exodus,” running from Nov 19-Dec 31, showcases the latest works from Indonesian visual artist Heri Dono whose work often explores political and social problems in Indonesia.
3/F, The Golden Place Plaza, Ratchadamri Rd., 02-652-2732. Open Tue-Sat 11am-7pm.
 

Humble Projects 

Founded by Nigel Power and Mat Trusler, two visual art professors from King Mongkut's University of Technology, this art space sits in a four-story renovated shop-house in Chinatown. On the ground floor, visitors will find an open-access print studio for hands-on learning about letterpress printing and other creative workshops. Meanwhile, the upstairs floors are dedicated to small-scale art exhibitions, screenings and seminars.
41/40 Sunthonphimol, Banthat Thong Rd. Open Sat 5-10pm. 
 
 

MoST Gallery

The creative agency of the same name that works with brands like Gucci, Vogue, GQ, Monocle and Dior now has a space dedicated to showcasing their custom photography, graphic and illustrative works. After hosting exhibitions at various galleries around town in the past, the new gallery now joins the artsy street of Charoenkrung and promises work from many big names.
672-36 Charoenkrung Soi 26, 02-639-6582. Open by appointment only.
