Genuinely surprised at the beautiful galleries/exhibitions in the art gallery. I wish to come back again and spend more time in the gallery, as it was close to closing time when I visited. Totally worth a visit as admission is free!

Most of the gallery are closed for maintenance & repairing works at this moment. Not worth a visit even no admission fee

Huge improvement from last year, a whole new exhibition on several floors showing both old and new, Malaysian and other Asian art, open till the end of March. The title "Be loved" sounds overly sweet, but the works from all over the region are divided...More

Spent 4 hours and thoroughly enjoyed the Biennale. Did not disapoint. And it is free! It made my KL trip special. Don't miss the "school bags "exhibition at the side before the entrance.

Nicely curated pieces with a wide ranging variety from oil, photography & installation pieces. Some areas could do with spot lights pointed at the description, too dark to even read.

On previous occasions I have enjoyed original Malaysian art here so I was quite dissappointed to find the permanent collection under reorganizing. The Young Contemporary show mainly mimicked Western art trends and offered the possibility to take funny pictures. One artist, Syed Zanzur Aksah rose...More
