KL Biennale 2017

WHAT IS KUALA LUMPUR BIENNALE
Kuala Lumpur Biennial (KL Biennale) 2017, is a mega-scale international contemporary art programme organised by the National Arts Gallery of Malaysia

 

THEME
The theme for KL Biennale 2017 is Be Loved or Alami Belas. According to the Malay dictionary, Kamus Edisi Keempat (2015) published by Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka (DBP), ‘Belas’ means sorrow, empathy and pity. Belas also means compassion or mercy. This theme is chosen to portray that KL Biennnale 2017 goes beyond the usual themes of the international biennales such as divergence, ethnic conflict, war and politic. This theme is also constructive and compassion in nature, instilling positive values such as compassion, sincerity, happiness, honesty, tolerance, mutual respect, solidarity, hope and sustainability.

 

By presenting “Awakening of Love – The Female Figures as Subjects in Art” SGM Art Collection Exhibition on this occasion, Soka Gakkai Malaysia (SGM) hopes to foster hearts who will pursue beauty and cherish nature, as well as create bonds of beautiful friendship.
