The idea behind Ken Gallery is to make art accessible by everyone. This is the very philosophy of the gallery which sets out to dispel the impression that an art gallery is meant only for the elite group. As such, the Ken Gallery provides the platform where art can engage with the community and for the artist to communicate better with their audiences.
New art culture
The vision behind Ken Gallery is Developing Your Future and that is where it wants to focus on culture in shaping the lives of the people. A brainchild of Dato Kenny Tan, the founding chairman of Ken Holdings Berhad, the gallery is housed within 4 major halls and a conversation centre occupying about 2,000 square feet. A strong advocate of art, the main hall here is where the permanent collection of Dato Kenny is exhibited which includes a series of antiques.
Located at Menara KEN in Taman Tun Dr Ismail, the Ken Gallery hosts exhibitions with the aim of preserving the cultural heritage of Malaysian art for the future and the generations that come after that.
