Wei-Ling Gallery will be hosting the annual [email protected] KUL-SIN group art exhibition where this years instalment will be held in Singapore. The exhibition will run from 12th to 19th December 2012 at ION Art down south which will feature a string of artists and their respective expressions of a specific theme for this year. After that, the exhibition will return to Wei-Ling Contemporary where it will run until next January 8th.
The [email protected] exhibition has become quite an icon in the Malaysian art scene since it first started in 2005 at the then newly established Jalan Scotts gallery. The name was drawn from the fact that there will be 18 artists selected for the show. In 2006, the [email protected] travelled to Karachi at the Amin Gulgee Gallery which was then entitled [email protected] KUL-KHI, which is the same way it is named this time around.
The [email protected] series would then continue to grow where in 2008 saw the conception of [email protected] Vice and Virtue where 9 artists were involved to produce 2 artworks each. In 2009, Wei-Ling Gallery expanded the show through the [email protected] 1Malaysia: Beyond the Canvas in which artists were required to produce artwork that were not of the conventional canvas paintings medium. In 2010, [email protected] again changed its theme through the Absolut [email protected]@ show where artists gave their rendition of Absolut Vodka bottles which would then be auctioned off and then donated to the SPCA.
For 2012, renowned artists like Anurendra Jegadeva, Ivan Lam, Chin Kong Yee and Zulkifli Yusoff will be involved while there will also be Jason Wee from Singapore who will be showcasing their artworks at this highly reputable group show.
