Dream World by Ong Xing Ru Opening Reception
A Year In The Life of Galeri Chandan
Throughout the 2014–15 fiscal year, Galeri Chandan explored exciting new horizons to bring people together with art. We created new perspectives on established artists, we introduced emerging artists to new audiences, we expanded our connections around the world and gave back to society through humanitarian projects.
Over the course of the year,many art lovers and visitors came through our doors to see, experience and understand the art world in new ways. We engaged the public with art talks, where we initiated ‘The Future of Malaysian Art Project’, an art talk focusing on artists and their role in society in April 2015 .We discussed, explored and shared ideas and views through their creative practices.
A Positioning Approach at NAFAS Residensi Showcase 2014
Last Friday night, 11 December 2015, Galeri Chandan once again hosted the homecoming of ” Road to Artistic Diversity” NAFAS Residensi Showcase 2014 . The heavy Friday traffic and rain did not hinder Friends of Galeri Chandan to drop by and give their support to artworks from Malaysia and Indonesia. The night was filled with good food,music (a guitar acoustic accompaniment) and an exchange of the goings on in the art scene amongst our guests. Artists, Hafidz Shabri, Arikwibowo Amril and Nadia Zawani, were on hand in sharing their experiences whilst in residence in Yogyakarta that night.
