Pameran Koleksi Lukisan Universiti Malaya 1955-1978

Date Event : 13 December 2022 - 16 January 2022


As part of the University of Malaya Art Gallery's mission to spread knowledge among the public through exhibition, this particular exhibition will be beneficial to viewers because it will allow them to expand their creativity by employing a variety of art-inspired development ideas rather than just the obvious ones that will be noticed.

A total of 40 painting units will be displayed, with 18 painters from the locals and abroad including Indonesia, Singapore, and India. The works on display will cover a variety of art trends by using various media techniques such as calligraphy, mixed media, collage, watercolour, acrylic, and oil paint.

Throughout the exhibition, a variety of interesting activities are available such as the Abstract Art Workshop. This workshop will introduce the participants about abstract art and a painting training session will be organised by a well-known Malaysian abstract artist. In addition, in the middle of December, visitors will be able to participate in live painting sessions with famous Malaysian artists.

Curator Note

Art is an experience that can be appreciated by one by using all of the senses. Today's art is an interesting spectrum of intellect, imagination, and emotion in the initiation of dialogue about life, existence and the world around us. It is essentially a human experience.

For the first time in the 11 years since its establishment in 2011, the Universiti Malaya Art Gallery is exhibiting the entire collection of Universiti Malaya's early paintings. This is where the idea was born to carry out the 55-78 Art Collection

Exhibition entitled Warisan which showcased as many as 40 units of the collection of paintings received from 1955 to 1978.

It aims to foster the development of the contemporary art scene in Malaysia by presenting the artworks of local and foreign artists. Additionally, each of these spaces is also enlivened with a unique atmosphere that invites interaction and aesthetic values ​​with contemporary elements and critical discourse.
