YOUNG MALAYSIAN ARTISTS: NEW OBJECT(ION) II (YMA II) EXHIBITION

YMA II is an exhibition initiated by Galeri Petronas to celebrate young artists. New Objection is a collective effort to create artwork that are free from any form of restrictions, regulations or barriers. It aims to explore new creative abilities in the hope of discovering new art idioms or vocabulary. Using the combination of modern techniques, these artists manage to skilfully maneuver the traditional aesthetic concepts while highlighting the meaning of their artworks.

As the co-organiser, Penang State Museum is proud to organise such a thematic exhibition which highlights 18 young Malaysian artists who engage in a ‘self-referential’ relationship with new technologies to discover the ‘self’ in making contemporary transformation determined by technological developments - new media.

New media art is the art of using new media technologies as a medium. New media works are sourced from telecommunication, digital media and electronics that will deliver art forms that involve interaction in between the artist and observer or inter-observer and artwork that reacts to them in various forms of art practice either conceptually or virtual art and presentation or installation.

These artists will exhibit objects resulting from the reflection of cultural and social events that could be considered as contesting with the traditional media such as drawings, paintings, sculptures and many more despite the opinion that defends the new media art as similar to other contemporary art practices.
