Established by HOM Art Trans in 2007, the Young & New group show is an open-call exhibition for Malaysian artists under 35 years of age.
This group show offers newer talents the chance to exhibit and expose their works to a wider audience. It also serves as a stepping stone for the new talents to kick-start their professional careers as visual artists.
This year, the organisers received over 100 "submissions" from various public and private art institutions such as UiTM, Dasein Academy of Art, ASWARA, One Academy and UPSI as well as by self-taught artists across the nation.
A total of 53 artists were short-listed and more that 60 artworks will be exhibited.
