Twenty-two artists present their artworks in response to the idea of what it means to be a “good” woman in society, addressing issues of identity and self, community and nationality.
The exhibition, “The Good Malaysian Woman: Ethnicity, Religion, Politics”, organized by the All Women’s Action Society (AWAM) and Interpr8 Art Space, will be held from May 18 to 25 at Black Box, MAP Publika, Solaris Dutamas, Kuala Lumpur.
Featuring 22 artists and more than 30 artworks in a variety of mediums, the exhibition raises questions such as “whose view”, “what is right or wrong”, “who judges”, “should they judge” . . .
