THE ART OF THE MAT­TER

Southeast Asia Globe - - Incoming -

With its claim of be­ing the long­est-run­ning in­ter­na­tional art fair in South­east Asia, Art Expo Malaysia Plus (AEMP) re­turns this month for its 11th year. For­tu­nately for those wish­ing to spend their cash on art rather than tick­ets, the or­gan­is­ers have con­tin­ued their com­mit­ment to keep­ing the event free and, with ap­prox­i­mately 70 art gal­leries from 25 coun­tries ex­hibit­ing 2,000 art­works, there will be plenty of choice for visi­tors look­ing to run through some ring­git. Keep an eye out for cel­e­brated Malaysian ab­stract painter Awang Damit Ah­mad, who will be one of 11 artists fea­tured in the solo ex­hi­bi­tion zone.
