Art and Culture Guide Events for the Weekend of 11-13 December

Welcome to the latest edition of the weekend events guide! While many of you may be traveling around the country (for where else is there to go) during this long Constitution Day weekend, those of you in Bangkok are still in luck. There are, as always, cool art events in the city for you to explore.

If you know of any events that you would like to see featured, please drop me a message on Twitter at @kevrpat!

Exhibition/Performance/Film/Discussion: A House in Many Parts

Where: Various locations in Bangkok

When: Remaining events on 11, 13, and 16 December

“A House in Many Parts” is an end-of-year festival organized with the support of the French Embassy and the Goethe-Institut. Artists in France and Germany were paired with Thai artists to create joint projects. The Europeans sent surprise “inspiration packages” to their Thai counterparts, as a way to maintain the possibility of international collaboration in a world where in-person meetings between artists from different nations are impossible.

Three events remain in the program; the first event on Friday the 11th at Gallery VER is a film program based on the theme of kinship across worlds, including animal and spiritual. The second event on Sunday the 13th at JAM Café is a series of performances and talks focused on the relationship between sound and resistance, and will include conversations on issues such as the role that musicians can play in popular movements and the experience of working in nightlife in a city like Bangkok. The final event on Wednesday the 16th at Monitor Lizard House features an installation highlighting the consequences of climate change and the irreversible damage that will be wrought on Thailand’s Chao Phraya delta wetlands unless serious action is taken.
