The eighth church attacked as we write. To neutralise this atmosphere of mistrust and hate, the young people of Kuala Lumpur decided to stage a rally tomorrow by distributing flowers to the public at a busy intersection in town, noon last Saturday.

Saturday Outing: Rimbun Dahan + Lost Gen Space

Published on 21 May, 2009 by | Comments closed | Filed under: News | Tags: , ,


It’s almost unreal that the Klang Valley art scene has been buzzing with activities non-stop for the past month. You’d think that as we enter into what is described as the worst recession since the Depression that programmes would have been scaled down or decommissioned altogether.

Some Rooms, Contemporary Southeast Asian art

By Eva McGovern

From February – May 2009 Ossage Gallery, Kwun Tong, Hong Kong is presenting Some Rooms, an exhibition that is a slice of contemporary art from Southeast Asia. 5 Curators were paired with two artists (selected by Ossage) each from Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and, (strangely in my mind) Hong Kong. I had the opportunity to work as one of the curators, and managed to learn an incredible amount about curating, about creating meaning, about categorising artists by nationality and the challenges of representation.

Brand New 2009: Thailand’s new set of creative Younglings

It has come to a point where I’m not sure if this exhibition is recognised solely as a platform for promoting the works of new Thai artists or that there’s an expectation that these artists would soon join the ranks of their predecessors to become the hot new thing in Thailand’s contemporary art scene. After all, the exhibtion is known to be a launch pad for the career of some of Thailand’s most well-known contemporary artists (Arin Roongjang, Porntaweesak Rimsakul, Yuree Kensakoo etc.). Reflecting on this, I reckon it does work both ways. And actually… why waste time doubting it anyway? It’s a good art project when you get right down to it.
