For the fifth time in Bangkok, Galleries’ Night will invite art lovers and curious people to visit more than 50 galleries in Bangkok. Getting from a gallery to another one with dedicated tuktuks, the visitors will enjoy contemporary artistic creations, exhibitions, special events and much more. In 2017 more than 8 000 visitors joined the adventure, this year we are expecting more than 14 000! Once again, Galleries’ Night will turn the City of Angels into a large, surprising, festive and friendly open-museum. The colors of the contemporary will rise and shine from all the participating galleries and will continue online with #GN18.
First launched in Thailand in 2013 and inspired by “La Nuit Blanche” (The white nights of Paris), Galleries’ Night is nowadays a highlight of the cultural season in Bangkok bringing together, year after year, a larger audience of curious minded people and art lovers. On the night of Friday 9th February, visitors will discover Silom/Riverside galleries and on the night of Saturday 10th February, they will discover Sukhumvit galleries.
The audience is invited to go from one gallery to another. To help the visitors through this journey, 30 dedicated tuktuks will travel through specific routes. Moreover, this year there is a special project of a mobile gallery inside the tuktuks created by Liv_id that will light up your experience during the journey. Off course, audiences can also take public transportation as well as walking to access each gallery. The website (French-highlights.com) and the Facebook pages (La Fête and Galleries’ Night) will also be here to help. For something a little more classic, a print map with all the galleries and tuktuk routes will be provided. More than 80 volunteers will be available to answers to questions and concerns.
EXHIBITIONS & SPECIAL EVENTS
The galleries will be open from 5pm till late; the list will be available on Facebook, the map and the app. Some of them will host special events such as dance or painting performances. Kids will also have a special event on Saturday afternoon at BACC. To launch the Bangkok weekend, we will invite all the partners, press, guests and the public to join us for a special launching drink on Friday 9th February (place to be announced).
