Art in Penang, Today and Tomorrow, Panel Discussion
15 June 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
From the birth of modern art through the likes of the Penang Impressionists in the 18th century to becoming “the unexpected street art hub of Southeast Asia” today – what makes Penang the place to be for creative exchange? This panel discussion explores the role of Penang as a regional and international art hub while navigating the state government’s vision for Penang to be a global art tourism destination.
Panelists include Lee Khai, Chairman of Penang State Art Gallery; Doris Hafner, artist and art historian; James Springer, writer of “Malaysia’s Canvas”; and Hoo Fan Chon, founder of an art collective; moderated by Stephanie Kee of Penang Art District.
