It was a first for Galeri Chandan to host an opening night on a Tuesday. But in celebrating family, love and affection and in conjunction with Valentine’s Day, we made an exception for Haris Abadi’s first solo show “Cosmic Playground “.
We began the night by welcoming all guests to our first show for 2017 to a good crowd of art students, lecturers, artists and also family and friends to Malaysia’s emerging artist in the new media art. “Cosmic Playground” leverages on Haris’s interests in digital culture and post humanism to communicate his hopes and fears for the children, and the generation to come. Its also a personal projection of his hopes and fears for humanity.Read more

The show features 25 selected drawings in graphite from Fuad’s studies. Matter At Hand was planned by the artist as part of his studio requirement for his Ph.D research, as well as another stage for his artist’s journey.Read more
