FLOATED: MALAYSIAN CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS EXHIBITION

Venue: Kendra Gallery . Seminyak , Bali . Indonesia

The practices of contemporary art in Malaysia might not be as animated as in Indonesia. Many changes, however, are taking place in this neighbouring country of ours. Some of them might prove to be intriguing art movements. They are not merely about the celebration for globalisation; rather, they reveal the different aspects of the maturing process within the art institutions there. This is a distinct advantage for Malaysian artists in the future, as we see the better infrastructure and the serious management efforts of such art institutions as the Balai Seni Visual Negara (National Gallery of Visual Art). Private initiatives like the Petronas Gallery in Kuala Lumpur have also sprung up, with the objective of furthering the art in Malaysia. This interesting development has so far escaped our notice in Indonesia, and there are not many exhibitions of works by Malaysian artists in Indonesia. Fortunately, three Malaysian contemporary artists—Jalaini Abu Hassan (Jai Jalak), Bayu Utomo Radjikin, and Chong Siew Ying—have now the opportunity to exhibit their latest works in Bali. The three of them have distinct characteristics, technical expertise, and talk about different themes.
