Gajah Gallery presents GENSET, bringing together multiple generations of artists from Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines and Singapore. Curated by Syed Muhammad Hafiz, GENSET aims to rediscover what sparks artists and their desire to create, exploring the relationship between mentor and mentees, and how one’s art can resonate with and continue to inspire future generations. Exploring the topic of contemporary inspiration, one asks the question: how are artists inspired, and how do they inspire in turn?
Participating artists include Ashley Bickerton (USA/Indonesia), Choong Kam Kow (Malaysia), Erizal As (Indonesia), Fadilah Karim (Malaysia), Hamir Soib (Malaysia), Handiwirman Saputra (Indonesia), Jai Abu Hassan (Malaysia), Jason Lim (Singapore), Jigger Cruz (Philippines), Kayleigh Goh (Malaysia), Khairulddin Wahab (Singapore), Kuat Zhi Hooi (Malaysia), Rudi Mantofani (Indonesia), Sabri Idrus (Malaysia), Samsudin Wahab (Malaysia), Semsar Siahaan (Indonesia), Sulaiman Esa (Indonesia), Suzann Victor (Singapore), Yunizar (Indonesia) and Zul Lee (Malaysia).
