Art happenings this month that will pique your interest
If you haven't already checked out this fairly new and unique gallery in town, you should! Located in Chinatown, RAW Art Space is an artist-run indie art space-meets-experimental music venue. Right now it's hosting 'Curious Houses', a group show curated by Raksasa Print Studio with plenty of fascinating artworks that are bound to rouse your curiousity.
This ongoing art exhibition traces the emergence of modern art as a cultural phenomenon in Malaysia in the 1960s through the early works of seven pioneering local modern artists: Anthony Lau, Cheong Laitong, Ibrahim Hussein, Jolly Koh, Latiff Mohidin, Syed Ahmad Jamal, and Yeoh Jin Leng.
Making plans to hang out at The Gardens Mall over the weekend? Take a walk to the rooftop for a healthy dose of art at Wei-Ling Gallery. There's an eclectic mix of works currently on exhibit, including Kim Ng's Walking on the Grounds of Someone's Dream (2012), Zulkifli Yusoff's mixed media Untitled (2014), and a selection of Yau Bee Ling's art pieces.
By this time, Christmas will be just a little over a month away - time to gift hunt. A diverse string of local designers, makers and artisans will be showcasing their work at this installation, and there will be mini workshops for you to pick up a craft or two too. Learn how to make a tapir memo clip with Moo.Nicholas, or try your hand at calligraphy with Inez Calligraphy.
