KUANG: Rimbun Dahan will be hosting its annual exhibition at the end of February, 2010. A much anticipated event on Klang Valley’s arts calendar, the 15th Rimbun Dahan Residency Exhibition will showcase artworks by Monika Behrens (Australia), Rochelle Haley (Australia) and Samsudin Wahab (Malaysia). All three artists are residents of Rimbun Dahan, the family compound of architect Hijjas Kasturi and Angela Hijjas in Kuang, outside Kuala Lumpur.

 

Rimbun Dahan Residency Programme

Rimbun Dahan Residency Programme started in 1994 and has provided residencies for Australian and Malaysian visual artists. Each artist is provided with accommodation, working space and monthly stipend for the year as well as an exhibition. No commissions are taken on the sale of artworks, but Rimbun Dahan selects two pieces from each artist for its permanent collection. The residency programme is fully funded by architectural firm Hijjas Kasturi Associates Sdn in appreciation for the opportunities that the Hijjas family has enjoyed in Malaysia and Australia besides supporting the arts in encouraging artistic and cultural ties between the two countries.

The programme has expanded since its inception by also providing short-tem (6-week to 3-month) residency for Southeast Asian artists, writers, poets and choreographers. The Rimbun Dahan Dance Residency programme is run by Bilqis Hijjas.
