9 Galleries + 1 Secret Location
Secret Art Night invites art lovers to experience Chiang Mai’s art scene in a friendly, fun and enjoyable atmosphere! For one evening, on 28th November, from 4 p.m. to midnight, 9 galleries, a temple and a secret place will open their doors to the public.
The secret show is to highlight some of the amazing galleries, artists and their amazing work in Chiang Mai city.
With the map in hands, people will discover and visit some of the main art galleries in Chiang Mai and experience some unexpected art performances and art shows on the way. To end on a good note, there will have a secret finale party. The location is kept secret and can only be found via the participating venues.
For this first edition, the galleries to discover from 4 p.m. are: The Meeting Room Art Gallery, Gallery Seescape, La Luna, Nuer Sang, Jojo Kobe, Dreamspace, Maispace, Kit’nCaboodle, Lido Art Space. The Toot Yung Art Center, located in Mae Rim 30 km north of Chiang Mai will also be present through a “pop-up” exhibition by the French artist and curator Myrtille Tibayrenc at Lido Art Space.
From 10 pm, a “secret” place will open its doors to the public. This secret place is a brand new gallery in Chiang Mai which will take advantage of Secret Art Night to make its official inauguration!
Secret Art Night is an urban setting and we would like to ensure that our transport impact remains low and easy for people to navigate. You can easily take red trucks that we have provided between venues, and we would encourage you to do so.

Where does it come from
The idea to organize an art event in Chiang Mai emerged during the lockdown last April while walking on the empty street with all the businesses closed down and zero social activities. What else to do than dream about the return of a normal life, how to help some of our friends who are going through a difficult time, what do the people need to do?
Quickly, we came up with the idea to organize a one-night art event. We started to talk with the owners of different galleries in Chiang Mai and it appears that all together we could make more noise, it’s when you are working hand in hand that you can create something bigger, attract more attention and help to elevate the art scene in Chiang Mai.
Slowly but maturely, the idea started to gain ground and became more of a collective idea that has more and more galleries joined, from 5 to 8 to 11.
How can we elevate Chiang Mai art scene and its people into the international scene? Join the conversation.
