10 Jan “Circus” comes to town!
After a successful run in November 2012 at Penang’sÂ ChinaHouse, it is with great pleasure to announce that the Cracko Art Group’s CIRCUS Exhibition continues at Artemis Art. This will be the inaugural exhibition to be held at our brand new gallery, located at Lot 21 & 22, Level G4 Publika @ Dutamas, No. 1 Jalan Dutamas 1, 50480 Kuala Lumpur.
The Cracko Art Group (CAG) is a collective of young Sabah artists, mostly based out of Kota Kinabalu, covering a variety ofÂ artisticÂ styles. One of them is Harold “Egn” Eswar whose works have been on display at our gallery, and who participated in the “Emergence” group exhibition last year.
CAG’s Circus Exhibition is a showcase of fifteen artists from Sabah – the Land Below the Wind: Alex Fong, Anddy Romeo Dulait, April Tsen, Ashly Nandong, Aye Axe, Cracko, Flanegan Bainon, Harold Egn Eswar, Irwan Azman Awang, Kwan @ Aks, Lybby Iliyas, Nofie. J, Taco Joe, and ZK Teo.
Sabah’s cohesive diversity makes itÂ a unique state in the Federation of Malaysia. It is not unusual to find, for instance, ethnic Chinese eating in a Malay eatery – or vice versa – without watchful eyes frowning upon such socializing. Many who have lived there for any considerable time would agree that it is the model upon which the ideal manifestation of a united Malaysia should be.
And in that unity lies diversity of a much larger degree, something that is very well represented in this exhibition. Not only is CAG’s Circus diverse in terms of the art genres represented, but also of the diversity of the artists participating.
The group exhibition opens on Sunday, January 13, 2013Â at 3pm, and is scheduled to run at least until the end of January.

The Circus Exhibition is Artemis Art’s first collaboration with the wonderful folks at ChinaHouse in Penang. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Ms. Narelle McMurtrie and Ms. Gaik Cheng for their tireless efforts and assistance. A big thank you as well to the fifteen artists participating in the exhibition.
In the pipeline will be more collaborative exhibitions in the coming months, making 2013 a year to definitely look forward to!
