Crossings: Pushing Boundaries

GALERI PETRONAS will be having its next exhibition Crossings: Pushing Boundaries from 6 September until 30 October 2016. This exhibition showcases narratives by 15 Malaysian artists responding to world issues and events shaped by socio-economic and political development in the 1970s through the 1990s.

This exhibition presents art from three generations of Malaysian artists (established, mid-career and young), who work internationally and embraced the changing pace of contemporary art practice globally.

Curated by Shireen Naziree, an independent curator and art historian, this exhibition seeks to explore the theme of internationalization and diaspora. The exhibition features artists who at some stage of their career have lived abroad and returned home, or others who have made permanent homes abroad.

The list of artists includes Ali ‘Mabuha’ Rahamad, Anuar Rashid, Bayu Utomo Radjikin, Chang Fee Ming, Chong Siew Ying, Dolly Unithan, Eng Tay, Ahmad Fuad Osman, Hayati Mokhtar, Khoo Sui Hoe, Nadiah Bamadhaj, Sabri Idrus, Roslisham ‘Ise’ Ismail, Wong Perng Fey and Latiff Mohidin.

Through their artworks, these artists convey the value of defying conventions, resilience and adaptability, which is parallel to the spirit of PETRONAS, as a patron of the visual arts and culture of a modern and progressive nation.
