ALLEGORIES OF THE MALAYSIAN LANDSCAPE : SELECTED ARTWORKS OF PETRONAS ART COLLECTION

July 4, 2013

 

CONVERGENCE: Allegories of the Malaysian Landscape emphasises the notion that the art historical grounded judgement of Malaysian Contemporary Art practice is an engaged mode of thought that serves as an anchor in the constantly changing interpretation of the Malaysian landscape.

 

Represented here is a critical investigation of received ideas and individual approaches to art, while never losing sight of the importance of the Malaysian Landscape as a means for theorising within these artworks the recognitions of various stylistic elements as embedded cultural expressions.
