Synopsis : The Black & White Fest is a mini multi-arts fest that is a celebration of Diversity.
Divided into three parts, the fest promises:
Diversity – a Photography Exhibition
Featuring works by Alan Ng, Alex Moh, Azril Ismail, Azrul K. Abdullah, Bernice Chauly, Caecar Chong, Erna Dyanty, Lim Hock Seng, Pang Khee Teik and Tan Chee Hon.
Ten Malaysian photographers return to their first love, black & white photography, to seek diversity in a monochromatic world. All works are shot on black & white film and printed on silver gelatin paper.
Buyers’ Preview: Thu 18 Sep 2008 (1pm – 8pm). Please contact Pang Khee Teik at 03-2070 1137.
Photographers’ Talk: Sat 20 Sep 2008 (3pm).
Wayang Kita-Kita – Poster Exhibition
Filmmaker Amir Muhammad and designer Liza Manshoor celebrate the 75th anniversary of Malay cinema by turning hundreds of “found” black & white stills from early Malay movies into quirky posters. The show implicitly acknowledges the crucial role of piracy in constructing our cultural memory.
Constitutional Amendments – Text Installation
The Malaysian Constitution has been amended over 600 times since 1957. The Centre for Independent Journalism’s interactive exhibition highlights some of the more dubious changes and asks you to mark your preferences between the original and the amended ones. Do you dare make an informed choice?
The opening of the Black & White Fest will take place on Fri 19 Sep, 2008 at 8pm. Refreshments will be served.
