If you’re still feeling Halloweeny, the good news is: so is Bangkok. Whether it’s the triennial art installation Ghost or a confinement-themed art exhibition by Karms, here are our picks of what to see and do this week.
Ghost 2565: Live Without Dead Time aims to mirror the ghosts that haunt our society. The theme “Live Without Dead Time” is lifted from the spray-painted French phrase on the Walls of Sorbonne University—placed there in the midst of 1968 Paris riots. Touched by the bravery of protestors, curator Christina Li has selected a host of artworks to reflect the tense political climate in Bangkok. The two-part exhibition covers motion pictures and installations as well as live music and late night gatherings.
Jim Thompson Arts Center, 10/1 Kasem San 2 Alley
Until November 13, Wednesday-Sunday 1-6pm

Experience an entire month of “Living with Art”.

The project highlights four top street artists—Thanachai Ujjin (Pod Moderndog), Nev3r, Linecensor, and Mamablues—who have teamed up to transform the Noble Create retail gallery in the heart of Ekamai-Ramindra expressway. Four sample rooms have been transformed into the artist’s personal creative space filled with artworks, daily necessities, and various collectibles that bear significance to the artists.
