Awakening Bangkok 2020
Time Out Bangkok reveals highlight features and activities of Awakening Bangkok lighting festival
Bangkok’s shiniest lighting installation fair Awakening Bangkok by Time Out Bangkok has now gained full force to make a comeback for the third time next week. Like people say, “third time’s a charm,” this return will be bigger than before with more artworks and a longer location route across the creative district of Charoenkrung-Taladnoi.
We are well aware that 2020 has been uneasy to you. That’s why we have invited a large horde of artistic masterminds from all over Bangkok and beyond to delve into this year’s theme of “RE/WIND/FAST/FORWARD” and create captivating artworks that reflect on tough times during the pandemic and allow us to learn, contemplate, and understand what it means to be alive amidst the hardship so that we can move forward onto the next chapter.
Taking place between December 11 and 20, 2020, art admirers will get to witness meaningful site-specific lighting installations from 25 Thai and international artists located at various attractions around Charoenkrung-Talad Noi like Prince Theatre Heritage Stay, The Grand Postal Building, Bangrak Riverview, ATT19, River City Bangkok, Patina Bangkok, Continuum Warehouse, ICONSIAM, and many more.
