Independent galleries

Plenty to choose from

Photo of Independent galleries, , Kuala Lumpur

What we say: 4 stars

Among the best are the Annexe Gallery and the Art House Gallery, in the Central Market Annexe; the Wei-Ling Gallery, in a beautifully converted shophouse in Brickfields; Art Seni, on the Muse Floor at Starhill Gallery shopping centre; and Purplehouz Fine Arts on Jalan Gasing in Petaling Jaya, a street which has become somewhat of a hub of artistic activity.

Clearly these places exist to sell art, but they all welcome casual browsing. Set in an even more obscure location is MAP @ Publika, a great new space to showcase contemporary art, in KL's funkiest shopping centre, Publika. Two foreign cultural organisations, the Goethe Institut and Alliance Francaise, do great work supporting contemporary art in KL.
