Today, I had a real good peek into Malaysia’s undergound art movement…. That’s www.galleriiizu.com – 2 ‘L’s 3 ‘I’s….
Please read this whole post so you know why I’m begging all of you to come next Sunday!
I spent 4 hours there. Can you imagine? It helped that they offered free refreshments, great music in the background, aired short films, had an art auction, and I got to meet so many lively people! Including the founders Izu and Suzanne… so friendly and REAL about what they do… Also…
Rena had her work exhibited – really cool stuff! See more of her work here.
And, I found a use for my hard earned salary… ended up spending RM163... on what?
RM88 – They were auctioning artwork… I won 2 prints of artwork… One huge one from The UseAgain Exhibition, which is a super interesting project – where artists put together artwork from a miscellany of other artwork previously rejected by clients in advertising… and another print by a local artist, Mohd Noor (click here to see it!)
RM20 – A shirt from YuanGarden. Visit their site – admirable – 5 guys building silk screens and selling shirts wherever they can. I will be meeting up to yamcha with them soon.
RM27 – Another shirt from EightyFourCube.
All this really inspires me to make MindValley’s new office into something orgasmic.
OK – NOW WHY YOU SHOULD COME NEXT WEEK
You can buy goodies that will make your friends will ask “Where did you get that from???” in protruding-vein-envy.
A major art auction at 2p.m – selling prints to fine arts to photographs… at bargain prices! And auctions are so much fun.
A party to celebrate a great 3 weeks of Art Lelong… Party begins at 6p.m where everyone will be bringing their friend’s friend’s friend.
Very good vibes going all around – I guarantee you will be invigorated to be extra productive in the week to come.
You can expect to be surprised – Especially if you think Malaysia has no youth-culture/ artistic talent…
