Arts and Culture
The period of the mid 1990s witnessed the merging of interdisciplinary experimentations and explorations between different artistic fields which could be seen as experimental forms of “art exhibitions”. These include ‘Two Installations’ (1991) by Liew Kung Yu and Raja Shariman; ‘Bamboo and Glass’ conceived by Raja Shahriman and choreographed by Marion D'Cruz; and ‘Chinese Prayer Altars’ by Liew Kung Yu in Alter Art, a site-specific and interdisciplinary installation and performance works at Fort Canning, Singapore. Subsequently, other collaborative exhibitions could be seen in ‘What About Converging Extremes?’ (1993) by Bayu Utomo Radjikin, Chai Chang Hwang, Marion D'Cruz, Raja Shariman, Ray Langenbach, Simryn Gill, and Wong Hoy Cheong. Situated between modern artistic practice, performance, installations and new media, this paper will examine these collaborative experiments and explorations within the context of exhibition history of Malaysia.
