Aside from eating out at cafes or restaurants (only until 9pm, though!), there might not be much to do in Bangkok right now. But the show goes on in the art world. Here are seven cool exhibitions you can check out right now, or later—with social distancing taken into account, of course.


“Two Sisters” by Auguste Renoir


The Impressionists

The Museum of Digital Art, or MODA, at River City Bangkok lets you immerse yourself in the life of the world’s most famous impressionists, such as Eduard Manet, Auguste Renoir, Vincent Van Gogh, and Claude Monet. The exhibition includes panels that tell the story of the artists and the period, recreations of 19th century Paris street life and café culture, reproductions of each artist’s most famous works, and visual projections displayed alongside evocative music. 
Through Apr 18. Museum of Digital Art (MODA), 2/F River City Bangkok Shopping Centre, 23 Charoenkrung Soi 24



Photo by Phichai Kaewvichit



Despite restraining his artistic urges for the better part of two decades, Phichai “Eak” Kaewvichit is now one of Thailand’s best-known photographers. Eak stakes his reputation on capturing Bangkok in his own minimalistic way, and now he is putting that aesthetic on display at RCB for “Unlock.” The exhibition features 30 photographs that detail four distinct chapters of his life en route to becoming the artist he is today. 

Through Feb 7. RCB Photographer’s Gallery 2, 2/F River City Bangkok Shopping Centre, 23 Charoenkrung Soi 24. Free entry



 “The Empress” by Phannapast “Yoon” Taychamaythakool


Venus in the Shell

“Venus in the Shell” is a solo exhibition by Phannapast “Yoon” Taychamaythakool, a young Bangkok artist who has collaborated with Italian fashion behemoth Gucci on numerous occasions. This exhibition will let you delve into the deepest corners of human emotion: fragility, anger, disappointment, love, joy, jealousy, brightness, darkness. 

Through Feb 28. 2/F River City Bangkok Shopping Centre, 23 Charoenkrung Soi 24

A Practice of Slowing Down

Offbeat Box hosts this ceramics exhibition by artist Sukanjana “Eve” Kanjanabatr, which explores the concepts of mindfulness and self-discovery. The pieces on display are simple, symmetrical, and minimalistic, expressing freeness, tranquility, and simple living, which, according to Eve, is the meaning of life itself.
