The current Bangkok has now come a long way for the art scene to rise exponentially with many art galleries opening up everywhere in the city, all the while talented artists also increase in number.

This means Bangkok in each month has a plethora of art exhibitions to visit across the town, and we have rounded up what's good to see here for you.

Due to the current situation of COVID-19, each venue may have different regulations for the visitors, such as social distancing and limiting the number of visitors. Please check with the galleries before the visit.

Invented in the mid-1800s, glass plate negatives became a popular alternative to other photographic processes of the time, such as daguerreotype negatives, for its ability to produce sharper images with less exposure time. These days, the antiquated method of documentation is used by fine art photographers to give a charming old-school feel to images.

Some of Bangkok’s most historical structures are captured on glass plate negatives in Civilizing Siam Through Collodion, an exhibition by Thapphawut Parinyapariwat of Red Light Lab Studio that depicts 12 spots across Rattanakosin Island in hauntingly beautiful black and white.

Civilizing Siam Through Collodion is part of Cultural District Bangkok 2021, and is now on display at Museum Siam until October 31.
