If These Walls Could Talk: Kanachai “Kit” Bencharongkul Takes Us on an Exclusive Tour of MOCA Bangkok

Bruce Scott, Prestige
In the mid-2000s I was given a private tour of The Hermitage, Russia’s famed museum of art and culture in Saint Petersburg, by one of the head curators (the cousin of a Canadian colleague of mine). It was an incredible way to experience the museum, seeing it through the eyes of someone so intimately connected to each artwork on display.
Fast forward 15 years and I find myself in a similar situation as I prepare to meet Kanachai “Kit” Bencharongkul, Managing Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art, better known as MOCA Bangkok. Today, Kit is going to walk us through this five-storey treasure trove of Thai and international art, which his father (Boonchai Bencharongkul, the founder of DTAC) built back in 2012 to house his own vast personal collection.
