    Another week, and another Bangkok mall

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 04/05/2016

    » Just when we thought we have had enough of community malls in Bangkok, yet another one has popped up. This time it's Suanplern Market on Rama IV, across from Channel 3 headquarters. The mall was officially opened in March but restaurants, shops and stalls have only just started to occupy the space.

    » 'Have you been to Korakrit's show?" This seems a common conversation topic in the art scene for now. This is followed by, "How do you like the show?", and if you don't, it feels like you are up against the contemporary art world, and that's just too much pressure. What's universally agreed, however, is his cushions are really comfortable.

    News, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 28/04/2016

    » There's this huge elephant in this room, of which no one -- neither the military government nor the general public -- talks about out loud, and it's one of the most likely explanations why the regime has held on to power as long as it has.

    Cool Thailand?

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 29/04/2016

    » It is only with reference to J-pop or K-pop that we have a clue as to what the word "T-pop" could possibly mean: an attempt at cultural export -- film, music and other forms of entertainment -- to create a "Thai brand" of cool. It's better late than never, so the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has recently launched a campaign, with Thai star Mario Maurer as the presenter, with the aim to boost tourism in Thailand and expand the entertainment market in China.

    Roving eye

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 13/04/2016

    » After a trip to Saatchi Gallery, a major exhibition by 23 artists called "Thailand Eye" has finally made it home to Bangkok Art and Culture Centre, where it will continue through August. When the exhibition first opened late last year in London, it created a buzz, with these 23 artists being selected from a longlist of as many as 200. The exhibition is the final instalment of a series of three cultural events marking the 60th birthday of Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn, the first two being a khon performance at the Royal Albert Hall and the Thai Film Festival at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts in June last year.
