Love Me in My Batik: Modern Batik Art from Malaysia and Beyond
‘Rubber Trees’ by Tay Mo-Leong

This exhibition at ILHAM Gallery explores two connected stories of the batik: its birth in the 1950s and the process of publicity that surrounded it in the 1960s which led to the growth of the batik craft industry. Featuring over 39 artists with notable names like Chuah Thean Teng, Tay Mo- Leong and Khalil Ibrahim to more contemporary artists like Liew Kung Yu and Yee I-Lann, the exhibition also showcases modern batik designs from 1960s to 1980s which were donated by Raja Fuziah to the Department of Museums Malaysia. Beyond that, a small collection of contemporary batik works by Indonesian artists will be on display to demonstrate the comparisons between the batiks of Malaysia and Indonesia.
