‘Black & White ‘is a Fine Art Department group exhibition at the Malaysian Institute of Art gallery
From 25th October – 5th November 2022
Black and White is the continuity of the ‘Mark-Making’ departmental show back in 2019. It’s one of the most important fundamentals of artwork creation. Colors are wavelengths reflected by objects to the human eye. White is pure light and black is the absence of light. For essential questions about identity, the opposites black and white are often chosen. According to Marinus Boezem, ‘The absence of the artist’ (1970), black and white addresses themes such as identity, presence, and absence. In an educational context, black and white often applied and appeared in most of their works. Our aspiration would not limit our students and graduates to include all black-and-white elements that are made visible as an expression of applied or gestural energy lines, shapes, and countless values in this exhibition. This October, the Malaysian Institute of Art is proud to present a showcase of some of its Fine Art Department students and graduate works that celebrate this theme. Visitors can delight in viewing black-and-white executions using charcoal, acrylic, emulsion paint, enamel, pyro technique, and other unconventional techniques applied by students of MIA between Semesters 2- 6 and graduates. These aspiring young artists apply experiments in their unique approach, and each medium has distinctive tag qualities. The purest artwork process methods are the most attractive among the existing dry and mixed media.
