Since opening its doors to the public, The Ledge has brought in a string of contemporary art works that has garnered a lot of hype and to the people around the mall.
Its latest show is entitled Superhero and this is one which will target the younger crowd of art lovers and enthusiasts.

By offering a different perspective and expression of their respective methods and techniques, artists like Anne Samat, Azzat Daniel haris, Baktiar Naim, Donald Abraham, Izzal Khairul Ramli, Steven Menon, Jazmi Mohammd Sharif, Fauzul Yusoff, Mohd Sarip, Shahrul Niza and others are proving that the new generation of contemporary art would be like.
