The Art Gallery is honoured to present Nasir Nadzir’s first posthumous solo exhibition, Nasir Nadzir, In Remembrance. He was a very young bubbly, gifted and talented artist who left us as a result of complications due to Covid-19 infection on 24th January 2021.
Nasir Nadzir, In Remembrance features 20 artworks (including one installation of the recreation of his studio space) from 2016 till 2020 focusing mainly on his wildlife series. This was his way of highlighting the plight of the critically endangered Malaysian wildlife as well as other nature works which he was experimenting with. Some works are incomplete but we have decided to showcase them as well. I hope this exhibition will allow art lovers to enjoy his works as well as to allow him to leave his legacy in the art community. Already, his works are included in the permanent collection of the Penang State Art Gallery.
For this exhibition, we shall be giving hourly guided tours starting from 2pm and the last being at 5pm. Please RSVP as we have limited spaces following SOP. Walk-ins will not be entertained. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
As we are currently observing MCO 3.0 now, the exhibition can only be viewed on this website. Please follow us on social media or this page for further announcement for a possibility of extension of this exhibition, depending on current MCO duration. Please contact us if you have any questions.
