Power, Play, Perception is a group exhibition featuring 13 artists from four countries.

They are Ashley Bickerton, Erizal As, Fika Ria Santika, Handiwirman Saputra, Mangu Putra, Muhajidin Nurrahman, Rudi Mantofani anf Yunizar from Indonesia. Kayleigh Goh and Sabri Idrus from Malaysia as well as Jason Lim and Suzann Victor from Singapore.

The exhibition is said to provoke the following questions: How is power exercised in the distinct cultures, histories, spiritualities, and systems of knowledge of the contemporary Southeast Asian artists featured? 

How do these artists creatively respond to these powers through play and experimentation? 


And finally, how does their creative work affect the way these artists perceive and depict the world around them?


The exhibition also marks the gallery’s inaugural group exhibition in Kuala Lumpur.


The show opens on July 19 at 6pm.
