GALLERY WEEKEND KUALA LUMPUR:
December 8 – 10, 2017
“The next Berlin? Kuala Lumpur launches gallery weekend. Dealers and museums join forces to put the Malaysian capital on the art map.”
– The Art Newspaper, 2016
ART FOR ALL.
GWKL is a novel, annual 3-day celebration of aesthetic and cultural diversity, in Malaysia’s capital city. Having launched successfully last year, GWKL returns this December bringing together galleries, institutions, projects and more across Greater KL.
Coinciding with Malaysia’s 60th year of Independence, GWKL 2017 promotes Malaysia’s dynamic cultural scene, creating connections across the globe.
GWKL offers a quality inter-disciplinary program.
“The inaugural Gallery Weekend KL provided visitors like myself with fast-track access to the city’s rapidly growing art scene. Well-organized and including a wide range of events, it offered many opportunities for in-depth conversation with local artists, gallerists, collectors, curators, and museum directors. Gallery Weekend KL opened my eyes to the unexpected riches of KL’s artistic culture. ” Christopher Phillips, Curator, International Center of Photography
“The GWKL is a great initiative and will undoubtedly help reinforce the identity of KL and draw strong attention over time.” Hanif Kara, Design Engineer & Professor, Harvard Graduate School of Design
This year’s edition welcomes a partnership with other international gallery weekends, including Brussels and Barcelona.
