Y.Bhg. Prof Raja Dato’ Zahabuddin Raja Yaacob (Ahli Lembaga Amanah/Board of Trustees) together with Y.Bhg Prof Madya Mohd. Said Abu (Pengarah/ Director) had a meeting with Liew Kian Yap recently. On behalf of Galeri Shah Alam, they are very happy & honoured to be invited to participate in Langkawi Art Biennale 2016. They wish to thank Yayasan Tunku Kassim and ArtMalaysia for the opportunity.
Galeri Shah Alam has already confirmed with ten emerging artists and they are all set for the event. This is the first time they are sending their gallery’s artists to participate at an international art event. This will surely be a good experience and exposure for their artists and pave the way for participation in many more international art events in the future.
Many thanks to En Iszuan bin Ismail for organizing this meeting.
