Bursting out: Pecha Kucha Vol. 6

Pecha Kucha Night Vol. 6 last Tuesday (31 Mar 09) was great. The fun vibe and enthusiastic crowd were especially welcome coming straight from the relative sombreness of Galeri Petronas’ Art Appreciation Series. Of course, the two events are not to be compared, since Pecha Kucha was held at cute new hotspot Urbanattic, and featured two words so dear to people’s hearts: free beer.

I trickled in late, but still managed to catch the better part of Beverly Yong’s introductory talk on contemporary art in Malaysia at Galeri Petronas on Tuesday. The turn out was pretty good. I mean, all the seats were filled. This was 6.30pm on a weekday so… kudos to you fellow die-hards.

Why so ssseriouss? Artist as joker

We have a new Prime Minister! If I had said that yesterday, I would have been able to wipe that glum, ponderous look off your face with ‘Haha! Just kidding! April Fool!’. Unfortunately, that wonderful day in the year when nothing can be taken seriously is no longer with us – slipped away completely unappreciated, as so many things do. Today, 2 April, Kampung Malaysia really does have a new Person-In-Charge. HRH the King announced his pwnage consent just hours ago.

by Tanya Soong

It is possibly one of the art world’s big little ironies that one of the hardest hit country in Southeast Asia by the current economic crisis is playing host to 80s ‘neo-expressionist’ extraordinaire, Julian Schnabel, who led the charge in painting’s postmodern renaissance and whose seemingly soaring fame and ego was neutered by the financial meltdown of ’87.

By Eva McGovern

I would like to take the opportunity to use my inaugural contribution to contribute an editorial of sorts since I have very kindly been accepted as contributing editor for Arteri. This entry therefore is about a question. A question I have been trying to understand so I can posit it in a more sophisticated way.
