Invitation: 26 May-26 June 2011 Photo Exhibition “Metaphorical Garden”, at KL Gallery


Goethe-Institut is opening yet another Cityscapes Exhibition on Kuala Lumpur, the fourth in sequence after “Mapping Invisible Cities” (GI SEA), “Creative Economies”(ASEF), and ” Beyond Our City: Lights and Myths”, this time by the title of “Metaphorical Garden”.

This exhibition is showcasing the works from a group of photographers calling themselves The Shooting Stars.
