A bench­mark for Malaysia’s art and cul­ture scene, the first Kuala Lumpur Bi­en­nale is a cel­e­bra­tion of Asian art through the theme of “Alami Be­las/Be Loved”. Sep­a­rated into five sto­ries of na­ture, her­itage, peo­ple, an­i­mals, and leg­endary icons, the ex­hi­bi­tion shines light on dif­fer­ent so­ci­etal val­ues and cul­tural iden­ti­ties. With works from artists such as Bibi Chew, Diana Lui, and Je­ganathan Ra­machan­dram on dis­play, the KL Bi­en­nale is an in­vi­ta­tion to im­merse in the sym­bolic world of art through sight and sound. Un­til March 31 at Na­tional Art Gallery, Kuala Lumpur. Tel: 03-4026 7000. www.art­gallery.gov.my/KLBi­en­nale
