About "Legendary Masters"
The exhibition ‘Legendary Masters’ shown at Qing Gallery provides a glimpse into the history and the art historical narrative The AFK Collection has set down via the act of collection building. By showcasing a series of seminal artworks by Malaysian contemporary art masters this exhibition traces the way a local contemporary art movement blossomed, along with the manner in which The AFK Collection identified this art movement and created a cohesive home for it. Working with Qing Gallery demonstrates the collection’s continuing desire to engage with dynamic and current modes of art presentation. Exhibiting important historical art in Qing Gallery offers an opportunity for new audiences to interact with the culture of Malaysia, understand how this contemporary movement developed and its socio-cultural value. And so, the aims of The AFK Collection to bring Malaysian art to the world and of Qing Gallery to showcase incredible quality art is further realised.
