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 visitors will discover Silom/ Sathorn / Riverside galleries and on the night they will discover Sukhumvit galleries.
The audiences are invited to go from one gallery to another.
To help the visitors through this journey, 30 dedicated tuktuks will travel through specific routes.
Of course, audiences can also take public transportation as well as walking to access each gallery. The dedicated mobile application of Galleries Night (powered by Pimclick) is available for free on Android and Apple stores and aims to help the visitors to choose and find the galleries.
For something a little more classic, a print map with all the galleries and tuktuk routes will be provided for free. Also, more than 80 volunteers will be available to answer your inquiries.
EXHIBITIONS & SPECIAL EVENTS
The galleries will be open from 5 p.m. onwards; the list will be available on Facebook, printed map and mobile application.
Some of them will host special events such as dance, painting performances or live talks. For the official opening ceremony, we will invite partners, press, guests and the public to join us for a special launching drink on Friday February 14th 2020 (venue to be announced).
