As Malaysia Day draws near, Four Points by Sheraton KL in Chinatown presents an array of exciting experiences for you to immerse in Malaysian art and culture.
A meaningful art showcase that will touch your heart to local culinary experiences, immersive in-house activities and even a social media competition – there’s something for everyone.
Special Exhibition: The 3 Graces of Malaysia
The 3 Graces of Malaysia is a special exhibit celebrating unity in conjunction with Malaysia Day. Presented by the Masteron Group and local talent Alice Chang from Lai Lai Art, the exhibit is a part of the year-long Moving Art Gallery collaboration. Whether you’re fond of contemporary or traditional Malaysian art, the exhibition flaunts a diverse range of works that are sure to appeal, including pieces from Janet Lee and Dato’ Luciano Mirri.
Upon entrance to the hotel lobby at Level 7, guests are greeted by Alice’s mosaic sculptural masterpiece of three life-sized statues of expectant mothers. “The 3 Graces of Malaysia”, Siti, Ah Lian and Shanti, can be seen dressed in traditional clothing. Rope binds the statues, symbolising unity, harmony, togetherness, and the beauty of racial diversity as they carry generations to come.
Art enthusiasts can also enjoy browsing through Alice’s “Legacy Series”, a debut feature showcasing a collection of Malaysian gift boxes made from Chinese porcelain. “Navigating through the wave of emotions during this pandemic has brought our community closer together and tested our resilience in more ways than one. My idea was to present gifts to everybody,” says Alice.
Painter and architect Dato’ Luciano Mirri’s “Colour, Light & Hope in 2021” collection features geometric designs painted in acrylic on canvas. Dato’ Luciano Mirri’s works in architecture and painting have often depicted geometric themes, which have evolved into his own language with a profoundly poetic style.
The exhibition also celebrates the differently-abled artist and colourist Janet Lee, who overcomes communication challenges through her love of vibrant hues. Janet’s Hibiscus Series offers Malaysians a message of hope, optimism, and gratitude in the face of darkness. Janet’s mother Joyce Moi is her most loving and ardent supporter, who seeks new opportunities for her to showcase her #artbeyondthecanvas.
All artworks, including Alice’s two-metre-high sculptures, are for sale, with earnings going to children and other beneficiaries. Janet Lee actively sets aside 10% of all her sales and proceeds to help and support Rumah Sayangan, a home for underprivileged children.
