The Bangkok Art and Culture Centre is showcasing a slice of Bangkok's past, present and future through works of art. The exhibition, on until February 15 of next year, takes us back to 1782 when Bangkok was officially established as a new capital, through a journey of time. It is an opportunity for fellow Bangkokians and historical enthusiasts alike to see and learn more about the history of the city itself, as reflected in art pieces created since the dawn of Bangkok. The exhibition illustrates how a group of artists view the city at present and how they envision the city to look like in the future.
Krungthep 226 is an attempt to explore and disclose how Bangkok has physically and spiritually changed since its establishment, as recorded by artists in their artworks. The event is comprised of two major parts: Visual art and related activities

The four zones are: Bangkok's Early Days, Modernised Bangkok versus Nostalgic Past, New Bangkok Skyline and Dream Bangkok.The Bangkok Art and Culture Centre exhibition is open from 10am to 9pm (closed on Mondays).
