Thonglor’s popular WTF Gallery and Café turned 10 in April. However, restrictions due to the peak of COVID-19 infections did not allow it to celebrate as expected.
But it is a place that combines the best of Thonglor art and creativity with an atmosphere full of joy, excitement, and beers. So it’s no surprise that the team has found a way to do it.
To celebrate a challenging and complicated year, WTF will gather its entire gang to eat and drink not for one but for three days at a belated but long-lasting party.
It starts today and will continue on Saturday and Wednesday. Besides, it will have a little of everything that characterizes and makes the place special. And everyone is invited! The celebration is extended to friends, clients, and collaborators of WTF.
With amusing sarcasm and reflections of their excitement for the celebration, the folks at WTF posted a particular announcement that reads: “The clear sunlight of a perfect Kingdom will wash over our rainbow-unicorn selves as we come together and look forward to the next decade of keeping it all too real.”
“We all know with every year, everything just gets better. The roads get safer, the poor grow prosperous, and the air becomes pure and fragrant. Our fairly elected government listens ever more closely to its people, as compassionate corporations work selflessly to clean the environment,” it added.
On Friday, attendees will be able to enjoy video projections of PSY 101 and Copode, a DJ established by Dudesweet founder Note Pongsuang.
There will also be live video projections by artist Gabriel Camelin from 7:00 p.m. See you later. On Saturday, the fun will last much longer. Attendees would drop by for a throwback block party that will last from 4:00 p.m. until 1:00 a.m.
There will be plenty of cold food and drink, with first-class DJ sets and video projections.
For those with a busy weekend, WFT also offers an alternative: the opening of its Project Pry exhibition on Wednesday. It will show works by three different artists, each curated by the project’s founding members: Soifa Saengkhamkon, Somrak Sila, and Penwadee Nophaket Manont.
WTF will also host talks and molam performances, as well as food and drinks at the bar downstairs.
Wednesday will also be the premiere of its new digital platform, whose objective is to exhibit contemporary works of art and represent a social change in a post-pandemic reality.
Bar, gallery and art? This is WTF, and you can find it on Soi Sukhumvit 51, arriving on foot from BTS Thong Lo.
