GALLERY WEEKEND KUALA LUMPUR  2017 hosted a tapestry program blending local talent, global perspective and heritage skill, all in a world-class environment.  Over 20 galleries and institutions showcased a quality and exciting range of aesthetic talent and collections.

In addition to the  varied and quality exhibition programs, GWKL 2017 saw curatorial tours of public and private collections,  artist-led projects,  public art, bespoke city tours and workshops.  The popular Luminary Talks attracted full house for both sessions with active discussions on Curatorial Conversations (Herwig Kempinger and Christine Boehler)  and  Creating & Collecting (Dr. Hugo Weihe and Sarah Ichioka)
