The GWKL Luminary Programme presents renowned creators: curators, artists, museum directors, critics, and commentators, both global and local, for audience appreciation and discourse. See WEBINAR for the 2021 Programme.

GWKL annually recommends important institutional, gallery, independent project and other creative features, many of which continue to be relevant throughout the year, albeit with changing programmes. Keep sight of happenings by connecting with Recommended.


“Like all art worlds seeking to enhance their ecologies, the Malaysian cultural scene needs a platform like GWKL to bring creative agents of various persuasions together to see art and to talk about it.”
