The BACC is the central point of Bangkok’s contemporary art movement. Holding regular exhibitions by some of the city’s most innovative free-thinkers, the center is a sounding board for artists to lend a voice to many of the current issues in Thailand, from politics to the question of the artist’s role in the modern world. The Center also has a number of interesting cafes where students and artists come to relax and debate. A fascinating visit for anyone wishing to explore the growth of modern art in Bangkok.

When you travel to Thailand or Asian countries, you would probably expect to see ancient cultural art like temple, palace, and Buddhist-related place.

Well, Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (bacc) would definitely surprise you, this art gallery/museum locates right at the heart of Bangkok. It's next to the MBK, Siam Discovery, Siam Square, and Siam Paragon, which I'm pretty sure all of you tourists must visit. It's conveniently connected to BTS (Sky Train) National Stadium station (It's the last stop of Silom Line) after Siam station. Walk toward exit 3, but don't take exit 3 because there's a bridge connect to the building.

For me, exhibits over there are not bad, but not too good. Please check out, I believe, the 7th floor. As of July 2012, it's an exhibit honoring King of Thailand. The paintings and sculptures are superb. They left me speechless and gave me goosebumps. They show how much Thai people respect and tribute to the King.

In conclusion, I highly recommend bacc if you have an hour or couple more to spare during visit to Siam Square area. Shopping in MBK is fun but can get boring quickly when you seeing same stuffs all over again everywhere, so if you are bored with that, check out bacc, just right opposite MBK. This might give you a new perspective of contemporary art of Thailand.

First to Review

BACC is always one of my first destination choices when visiting Pathumwan district. It locates between two major department stores (MBK and Siam Paragon). It is free of charge. You can visit this art center for a bit of artistic experience or just taking a break after hours of shopping.

The center exhibits contemporary art. There always have at least 7-8 interesting exhibitions showing. My favorite point is that one or more of these exhibitions always have good interactive aspects. For example, in the “Good to Walk” exhibition that currently exhibits in the center, you can walk in a white narrow path that seemed to lead you to a fantasy place; or when you dance in front of certain characters in the wall, they will follow your step.

The shops and restaurants in the center provide creative product and service in a reasonable price. I like traditional Thai dessert ice cream of the iceDEA, the ice cream restaurant. There is also the theatre that shows art movie and it is free.

The only art center in Bangkok that can be compared with BACC in size may be the Queen’s Gallery at Ratchadamnoen. However, for me, BACC is better in term of facility and interactive art. So I can say that it is the best of its kind in Thailand :)
