One of the most important events of the annual cultural art program in Bangkok is the La Fête Galleries’ Night, organized by the French Embassy of Thailand. This will be the 4th staging of this annual event, which aims to promote contemporary art and highlights all dynamic creativity—Thai and international—introducing new experiences and pleasures, both small and large, to the gallery going public. Over the course of the two nights—Friday, February 3rd and Saturday, February 4th, gallery goers will discover a wide variety of activities, including exhibitions, performances, artist meet-ups, film and video screenings, talks, and even live music. And with more than 40 participating galleries and art spaces in Bangkok, there’s sure to be something for everyone. This year the Galleries’ Night will also feature “clusters”, with several galleries and art spaces in one area, enhancing the activities, with places to rest and refreshments available along the Silom/ Sathorn BTS line and riverside on Friday 3rd and along the Sukhumvit BTS line on Saturday, February 4th. There will also be a special platform with activities for children, young people, and families at the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (BACC) during the afternoon of Saturday, February 4th, from 2pm onwards. As always, volunteers at each gallery and art space will be on hand to help and provide useful information to visitors. So download the free app and make your way down the gallery gauntlet. However, if you happen to have missed this year’s event, our special photo feature presents a few highlights from some of the galleries participating (with most of these shows continuing throughout the month).
