In an effort to spice up our metropolitan skies with style, Art in The City brings to the people an outdoor art display initiative to create a deeper appreciation and awareness on our Malaysian arts and cultural landscape!
Starting from the 22nd of January to the 9th of March 2018, AITC is opening up submissions for your artwork to be showcased on skyscrapers across Kuala Lumpur!
In addition to that, the collection of artworks from the nation’s legendary artists in partnership with Balai Seni Negara and not forgetting grassroots artists will be made for the public to vote. The image of the top most-voted artworks will then be enlarged and displayed on top of buildings across Kuala Lumpur city.
As announced by the Minister of Communications and Multimedia, YB Dato’ Seri Salleh Said Keruak during the launch of the Kuala Lumpur as a Cultural and Creative City report, Art in The City aims to not only make the visual arts more accessible to the public, it also serves as a platform to promote and amplify works by independent artists that may not necessarily be known to the wider public.
CENDANA is pleased to invite Malaysian visual artists to participate in giving the city the unique imagery that it deserves whilst promoting it as a cultural creative destination.
Artworks can be in the form of a painting, photography and visual design that contain relevance to Malaysia in contributing diverse cultural expression and allowing engagement with the public by exposing differing perspectives or fosters increased understanding of the arts.
Submitted artworks will then be shortlisted by the selection panel, followed by an online voting system by the public to determine which artworks are most suitable to be displayed on buildings in the city.
