Bangkok Art & Culture Centre review 9 Users say 4/5 Rate it

Spiral up the Guggenheim-esque atrium of the Bangkok Art & Culture Centre where the top three of the building's 11 storeys are exhibition halls. Beyond painting and sculpture, you'll see video, conceptual photography, installation and performance - sometimes all at once, in the case of a show by Navin Ravanchaikul. Rotating BACC curators like Luckana Kunavichayanont and Apinan Poshyananda mix up categories even further by showing cutting-edge work alongside traditional Thai, Western academic, modernist and foreign shows.

I never skip the BACC while in Bangkok. It is always worth a few hours and never ceases to amaze me. A real gem.

BACC is always one of my first destination choices when visiting Pathumwan district. It locates between two major department stores (MBK and Siam Paragon). It is free of charge. You can visit this art center for a bit of artistic experience or just taking a break after hours of shopping.

The center exhibits contemporary art. There always have at least 7-8 interesting exhibitions showing. My favorite point is that one or more of these exhibitions always have good interactive aspects. For example, in the “Good to Walk” exhibition that currently exhibits in the center, you can walk in a white narrow path that seemed to lead you to a fantasy place; or when you dance in front of certain characters in the wall, they will follow your step.

The shops and restaurants in the center provide creative product and service in a reasonable price. I like traditional Thai dessert ice cream of the iceDEA, the ice cream restaurant. There is also the theatre that shows art movie and it is free.

The only art center in Bangkok that can be compared with BACC in size may be the Queen’s Gallery at Ratchadamnoen. However, for me, BACC is better in term of facility and interactive art. So I can say that it is the best of its kind in Thailand :)

the map for the Bangkok Art & Culture Centre is not showing the correct place for the muesum. the address is right but the map below is misleading as it directs you to a totally different part of Bangkok. it is still a nice area but no muesum in sight. please correct it so other people will find it for first attempt.

While the building is impressive, most of the art on show is either derivative or third-rate or both. It is probably the best modern art space in Thailand, but that really isn't saying much.
