As this is an exclusive event, there will be admission charges where adults would have to pay RM12 while students will enjoy 50% off.
If you haven’t already know, Ann Dunham is the late mother of US President Barack Obama and the exhibition will showcase the family’s batik collection when they resided in Indonesia. This took place around the 1960s and through to the 70s when Ann was an anthropologists and scholar. There will be 20 pieces of work that will be on display and this is shown only for the first time outside the United States.
