CURRENT EXHIBITION (LEVEL 5)
ILHAM Art Show 2022
17 MAY - 23 OCTOBER 2022
ILHAM Gallery is delighted to present the inaugural ILHAM Art Show, a triennial exhibition platform initiated to give artists in Malaysia the opportunity to experiment and make new work.
When we announced the inception of the ILHAM Art Show, the country was under its second lockdown as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. With museums and galleries closed for extended periods, it felt more important than ever to introduce a programme that would support contemporary artists and stimulate public discussion and critical debate in Malaysia.
PAST EXHIBITION (LEVEL 3)
Skola Gambar Enrique de Malacca
Ahmad Fuad Osman
15 MARCH - 12 JUNE 2022
The first circumnavigation around the world by the Magellan-Elcano expedition in 1519 has, over time, gained allegorical significance, marking the start of the age of globalisation. And yet, this story of heroism, tribulation and adventure is primarily told through a Eurocentric (Western-centric) lens.
Records show that among the 270 crew members who undertook the perilous three-year-long expedition on five ships was an enslaved Malay sailor and interpreter named Enrique de Malacca. This insight offers us an opportunity to revisit this historical moment, through the perspective of a person from the Malay Archipelago. Skola Gambar Enrique de Malacca is the fourth iteration of the Enrique de Malacca Memorial Project by Ahmad Fuad Osman.
