BANGKOK | Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA BANGKOK) was opened by owner Boonchai Bencharongkulin in 2012, and is one of Asia’s largest contemporary art museums. The museum’s mission statement is to “constantly share, spread, and preserve true Thai art and culture with both Thais and others from across the world, especially the next generation”.
Across MOCA Bangkok’s architecturally impressive five floors and 20,000 square metres of exhibition space, you’ll find temporary and permanent exhibitions featuring over 800 paintings, sculptures, mixed media art, and installations from contemporary Thai artists.
Featured artists include the likes of Paitun Muangsomboon, Thongchai Srisukprasert, and Thawan Duchanee. The first four floors are dedicated to Thai artists, while the fifth floor features works from international artists. Works cover an assortment of topics, including traditional Thai philosophy and culture, and modern Thailand.
MOCA Bangkok is open from 10:00am until 6:00pm, Tuesday to Sunday. Along with the art, there’s also a souvenir and book shop, café, and outdoor garden featuring sculptures.
