How does one get into the penang state art gallery? I recently saw a malay Mail article about ivan gabriel who curated the belang show. Who’s this guy? How did he get invited to curate a show at the state art gallery? Usually I see participation only from the art societies, so this was different. But I would like to know what’s the process? Is there transparent procedures for this? I looked up this curator but it seems like he’s an artist, and not much about him being a curator. Good to see the state art gallery open its doors but what’s the criteria? Seems like have to be in some sort of secret circle only can take part? Can any artist who is participating in the belang show please enlighten me?
@Finch Lou, you want to get in as an artist ke or curator? They did a talk once in Hin Bus Depot on the process, maybe you can approach some of the people at Hin to share with you what was mentioned during the talk.
