City Art Guide: Bangkok...
Bangkok, or Krung Thep as it’s locally known, has a vibrant creative scene that can easily pass a visitor by. Though innovative product and interior designs are obvious in commercial spaces, galleries are not given much importance in Thai culture and have to be sought out. The following list of venues is by no means exhaustive, but should offer a reasonable starting point for lovers of contemporary art....

Illuminating India: Chila Kumari Burman at the Science Museum, London...
Entering London’s Science Museum, before the turbines and rockets and light-up thingamajigs, there is an auto rickshaw: the humble A-to-B for many in India, also known as an auto, a three-wheeler, a Bajaj (after the company that manufactures them) or a tuk-tuk (after the noise they make when started up). The vehicle sits behind a rope. It is covered with dazzling stickers, its entrances blocked with clear perspex, passenger seats removed, and a makeshift shrine not quite visible on the auto’s fl...

In May this year, when TCDC (Thailand Creative and Design Center) reopened in the Grand Postal Building on Bangkok’s Charoen Krung Road, not everyone was delighted. “There goes the neighborhood,” sighed BK Magazine, anticipating the influx of dungarees and MacBooks. Certainly, in its previous home in Emporium Mall, cheek by jowl with the gourmet chutneys, TCDC could become impossibly congested with freelancers and design students by midday. And the neighborhood of Bang Rak, where the Postal Buil...

MAIIAM: Brand New...
Chiang Mai has long been known as Thailand’s creative heartland, but the languorous second city never had a crowd-pulling art museum – until, that is, the arrival of MAIIAM in 2016. The 3,000 square-meter gallery, which hosts the extensive collection of the Bunnag-Beurdeley family as well as temporary exhibitions, has made Chiang Mai a must-visit destination for the art crowd in ASEAN and beyond, complementing the smaller, experimental spaces in the university district of Nimmanhaemin. And in th...
