Whatchoo Doing This Weekend?

Sweet hot happening jumping skinny jeans – there’s so much stuff on the art calendar it’s driving us a bit crazy! What you should check out this weekend:

Meeting of Styles KL

Asia’s first ever MOS is happening in none other than our city of stink and sparkle – Kuala Lumpur! Graffiti artists from all over the world will converge on the banks of Sg. Klang and Pasar Seni LRT station. We bet they’ll cover many square meters of urban concrete with some great art, and look damn hot while doing it (ahem). If you need proof, just look at the promo video:

MOS KL starts at 10am SAT 4 Dec and carries on till 10.30pm the next day, SUN 5 Dec. More info here.


Pekan Frinjan 16: Hak Asasi Manusia

Pekan Frinjan is a monthly art event happening mostly around Shah Alam. This is the last Pekan Frinjan of the year, so you’ll want to be there. The theme is Human Rights and they’ve got a great line-up including Meor, Mono Lyssa, Tilu, and regular Arteri contributor and Main Dengan Rakyat raconteur Chi Too. [Since I’m writing this, I should also mention that I’ll be doing a performance art piece called ‘Passing Screams, Passing Laughs’ under Buka Kolektif – SC]

Pekan Frinjan will take place at i-City Amphitheater, Seksyen 7 Shah Alam, 5pm – 12am, SAT 4 Dec. Come out and see something different at this strangely named part of Shah Alam! More info here.


Catch it now, or regret it forever

Shaifuddin Mamat @ Poodien, Victim of Circumstances, 2010, Pastel & acrylic on canvas, 145 x 216cm

This weekend is also your last chance to see two exhibitions by young Malaysian artists:

3rd Malaysian Emerging Artists (MEA) Awards Showcase featuring ‘End Game’ by Shaifuddin Mamat @ Poodien and ‘Monolog’ by Mohd Bakir Baharom @ Kat at Galeri Chandan. Darkly beautiful work from two promising artists.

Buka Jalan | Open Roads at PJ’s lovely new independent art space Small Talk With The Moon.


Congratulations, Yee I-Lann!

Finally, we want to say congratulations to Yee I-Lann on the launch of her book Fluid World, which happened at Valentine Willie Fine Art on TUES 30 Nov 2010. I haven’t yet had a look at the volume, but I’ve heard it’s beautifully produced. Now if only Arteri could get its dirty mitts on a review copy…

More info on Fluid World here. The book can be found at Valentine Willie Fine Art.


There you go. Have a good weekend! Remember, you can upload your event to Arteri’s Event Calendar here. If you’ve got something burning to say about art and culture and want it to be published on Arteri, go here. I leave you with a video from the good Hennessy Youngman, giving you advice about How To Be A Successful Artist. Guaranteed to offend all your politically correct sensibilities. Until next week.
