BANGKOK — Art on a bed, on a toilet or just hanging here and there throughout five floors of a Thong Lor hotel will be discoverable next week. Not to mention a robot.
More than 30 venues will contribute works for the fourth Hotel Art Fair, including Bangkok CityCity Gallery, Tentacles, YenakArt Villa and the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre.
Apart from getting to see a diverse body of work from the artists, visitors will get a chance to meet Paul, an advanced sketching robot showing off his drawing skills for the first time in Asia.
The Hotel Art Fair is an opportunity for galleries to showcase their collections and attract new visitors to encounter art in a chill environment.
At the June 23 opening, emerging Cambodian artist Lisa Mam will draw live starting at 8pm.
Explore a hotel filled with art June 23 to 25 at Volve Hotel in Soi Sukhumvit 53, which is a five-minute walk from BTS Thong Lo’s exit No. 1.
