The National Visual Arts Gallery is currently holding a group exhibition entitled Pameran Seni Arca: Aneh dan Indah which literally means Sculpture Exhibition: Strange and Beautiful. This is essentially an exhibition which, as the name implies will showcase some of the most intriguing and mysterious looking sculptures from the rich culture of Malaysia. The exhibition is held at the lobby on the third floor of the National Visual Arts Gallery where it will be a truly unique showcase of Malaysian culture and traditions intertwined with the arts.
The Aneh dan Indah show will involve 24 pieces of artwork that will encompass a variety of medium used in the completion of these highly unique and original sculptures and there will be works on wood, steel and many others. The abstract and mystical sculptures are specifically selected to exude the national identity of Malaysia which are appropriately used to represent the multi-cultural society of the country.
Among the artists who are involved in this group exhibition are renowned sculptors like Tengku Sabri, Jeri Azhari, Zainudin Abidinhazir and the widely popular Raja Shahriman Raja Aziddin who is a Diploma Fine Art graduate from Universiti Teknologi Mara majoring in sculpture. Apart from that, there are also works from the Orang Asli community where sculptures from the Bidayuh people and the Mah Meri are also exhibited.
Opening hours: Mon-Sun, 10am-6pm
