  • Remembering His Majesty...

In a tribute to the beloved late monarch His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the Museum of Contemporary Art (Moca) is organising a photography exhibition “King of Kings” by 16 photographers until October 29.

The exhibition is divided into three parts: a collection of black-and-white images of his Majesty throughout his life, his images captured during the royal duties and ceremonies, and pictures inspired by the late King’s contribution to the country. A selection of black-and-white pictures from the archive of the museum is also on display.

“The exhibition illustrates the memories we have of His Majesty, and the pictures portray memorable moments throughout his life, such as pictures from his childhood and images with the royal family, as well as historic moments during his reign. His Majesty did a tremendous amount of work, using his talents and dedication to bring happiness to his people throughout the 70 years of his reign. These images reflect the loyalty that Thai people have for His Majesty,” said Kanachai Bencharongkul, associate creative director of Moca.

The museum has also organised a wall painting exhibition by celebrities and socialites, such as Suriyon Srioathaikul, Vatanika Patamasungh, Rijiraporn Wanglee, Varit Hongsanan, Sopidnapa Chumpani, Woranuch Bhirombhakdi, Nittha Jirayungyurn and Nut Sakdatorn.

Moca is on Vibhavadi-Rangsit Road, next to the Benchachinda Building. It’s open weekdays except Mondays from 10am to 5pm and on weekends from 11 am to 6pm. Find out more at (02) 016 5666 and www.MoCABangkok.com.
