CHINATOWN-2020

Unique gastronomy Diverging cultures Historic treasures

In a nostalgic refuge from the city centre, yesteryear’s commercial hub makes for an eclectic playground of creativity and culture, with plenty to discover.

The buzzing business of Charoenkrung still echoes in the characterful shophouses of Charoenkrung and you can taste the Chinese influence in Yaowarat’s sizzling street food scene. Explore Bangkok’s old town to uncover a lively new community of cafes, bars and galleries that nod to the neighbourhood’s storied past.

We’ll be open for bookings soon. In the meantime, stay in the loop.

The Temporary Observer by Eve - Marisa Rungroj (ABOVE THE MARS) a photo exhibition about emotional transitions. It discusses the artist’s journey within and outside of herself through travel photos, as she is the kind of human who is fond of observations. Marisa believes that everything is temporary. Since growth leads to diverse ideas and different feelings, the fact that nothing lasts forever became clearer.

Barely Human Gallery is proud to present “un”, a group exhibition featuring four artists. “un” will run from February 14th 2020 – April 14th, 2020 with an opening event during the Bangkok Galleries Night (Sathorn, Riverside night) on Friday, February 14th from 5-11.30pm. This opening event will also feature a live sound performance by artists Lafyna and An.OnlyChild.

“un” is an undisclosed reunion, an unknown self-portrait, an undiscovered journey. Bringing together four artists: Nicha Thaveecharoensook (Lafyna), Chaipitak Thapbunchakun (Try.T), Lindhana Lertratanansuphachai (Linnatamm) and Sarah Nakamura (An.OnlyChild), all whom have created a commercial brand and following for their illustrative, animation and photographic works but share the sentiment of being stunted in their personal creative expression and own interests. How do you manage the struggle between artistic expression and making a living with your pen stroke in today’s world? Addressing topics of identity through and removed from the digital platform, past and present, external and internal; each artist presents their own take on the disparity between identification through their social media self-branding and how they see themselves.
