The Space Between
A major new survey show The Space Between curated by Anurendra Jegadeva and Rahel Joseph is set to preview on March 21st at Wei-Ling Contemporary.
The exhibition aims to explore the role of artists in society – what it is and what it could be – through the works of 18 artists who, in novel and exciting ways, are also making major contributions to the current visual vocabularies of contemporary Malaysian art.
The exhibition which features the work of some of Malaysia’s most prominent artists including Ahmad Fuad Osman, Ahmad Shukri Mohamed, Chan Kok Hooi, Chen Wei Meng, Choy Chun Wei, Eiffel Chong, HH Lim, Ivan Lam, Jalaini Abu Hassan, Kim Ng, Liew Kung Yu, Paiman, Sean Lean, Umibaizurah Mahir Ismail, Vincent Leong, Wong Chee Meng, Yau Bee Ling and Yee I-Lann, and draws from current issues in Malaysian life with regard to themes, content and other approaches employed by Malaysian artists to convey the real world around them.
The Space Between will also feature an earlier work by each of the invited artists. In bookending each of these artists’ new works with an earlier iconic work from their careers, the exhibition will serve as both a survey of the development of these artists’ individual practices as well as a valuable reading of the development of Malaysian art in the last two decades.
The Space Between will show from April and will continue until June 2015 at Wei-Ling Contemporary.
Wei-Ling Contemporary is located at RT01 Sixth Floor, The Gardens Mall, 59200, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
