Wei-Ling Gallery is pleased to announce the second installation of the WLG Incubator Young Artists Show, featuring Alya Hatta, Anwar Suhaimi, and Shika. As part of the mentorship this year, these three emerging Malaysian artists dedicated their time to exchange, explore, and create new possibilities to extend their practices, with Anurendra Jegadeva as their mentor. The WLG Incubator is an initiative by Wei-Ling Galleries that was launched as a platform to highlight and collaborate on projects with emerging Malaysian artists. It is dedicated to help artists create a sustainable art practice, which allows them to develop their confidence towards making art that is authentic, experimental and progressive. Through this Incubator, we hope to discover and nurture artists and projects, which are critical towards shaping the voice of the next generation. Launched in 2020, the WLG Young Artists Collaborative Mentorship Program is a WLG Incubator program that provides the opportunity for emerging artists to be advised and guided by an established artist. Earlier in the year, thorough research was conducted to identify the next generation of young progressive artists from Malaysia, whereupon the identified group of artists were invited to submit their portfolios for consideration and selection. The shortlisted candidates were then involved in a two-tier interview process whereupon three artists were selected for participation. ‘WLG Incubator Young Artists Show 2021’ features at Wei-Ling Gallery, Brickfields from 12 October - 13 November 2021. Exhibition is open by appointment only. For appointments and further assistance, please contact +60322601106 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org Images: 1. Alya Hatta - Why are they here?
