Pridi Banomyang Institute

A small taste of art

Photo of , , Bangkok

What we say: 3 stars

This interestingly-designed cultural centre is home to a few small rooms serving as art galleries and offices.

The primary focus of the place is to view sporadically rotating art by local and international artists and to provoke cultural interest and discussion among young Thais.

Named after Pridi Banomyang, one of the leaders in the 1932 coup, the institute holds semi-regular screenings of eclectic films based around a changing theme (war or technology, for example) in the main theatre. It's a sincere attempt to educate the public about art in a city that historically doesn't care much about it. The website is in Thai, but if you call or e-mail they will be happy to provide English information on what's currently on display.
