Nouveau Art Gallery

May 05, 2014
GOJA Gallery Cafe
Bangkok art lovers, if you haven’t yet noticed, it’s time to put aside the city’s biggest art names – i.e. MOCA, 100 Tonson Gallery, and Warp54  – for just a moment. A new wave of young artists and collectors has swept the city, correlating directly with the recent crop of independent galleries sprouting up around town, and including one of our favourites, the new GOJA gallery and café. Soft opened in February in a renovated Phra Kanong shophouse, the collective is dedicated to showcasing the works of emerging names both local and international, but with a firm focus on the Japanese scene.

To that end, GOJA debuted with two consecutive exhibitions, titled ‘Paintbox Vol. 1’ and ‘Paintbox Vol. 2’, each promoting the works of 13 contemporary artists and well-received in the local community; followed by the April launch of ‘Fresh Photo Japan’, a temporary pop-up exhibition held by Japan’s Einstein Studio, intended to highlight upcoming Japanese photographers and expose them to an international audience. And if perusing the pieces leaves you peckish, the gallery café doesn’t disappoint with its line-up of fresh breads, brews, and bistro bites. Out with the old, in with the noveau!
