Group Exhibition – ‘Dream of the Day’

Ilham Gallery, Ilham Tower, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

29 November 2022 – 14 May 2023

The exhibition title, ‘Dream of the Day’, draws from the 1965 manifesto of the Philippine-born artist David Medalla, well regarded for his long-lasting influence in the British and global contemporary art scene since the sixties. His work, as well as those of 38 other artists from the Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Singapore, Vietnam, Myanmar, Egypt, and Malaysia are included in this exhibition which explores a range of media, genres, and sensibilities— from surrealism, slow cinema and trans-performance, to queer photography and feminist painting.

‘Dream of the Day’ questions how the presence of dreams, monsters, myths, hybrids, omens,  spirits, and fantasies evoked in this assemblage of artworks sits in the context of contemporary Southeast Asia, where modern life typically centres around notions of realism, humanism and nationality.
