GMCA is a vision to push Malaysian Contemporary art into both local and international prominence and a vision to gain recognition for its critical and investment value. GMCA in fact is a mission that serves many fronts.

Showcasing the high quality of Malaysian contemporary art

GMCA is a curated exhibition that will showcase the months of painstaking effort that is required to produce a seminal artwork. All these artists have been specifically selected for being the best, or amongst the best, in their specific genre from painting, sculpture, installation art to assemblage. This first exhibition of the GMCA focuses on Abdul Muthalib Musa, Ahmad Fuad Osman, Ali Nurazmal Yusoff, Anuar Rashid, Eng Hwee Chu, Fadli Yusof, Hamir Soib, Husin Hourmain, Mohd Noor Mahmud, Shooshie Sulaiman, Suhami Fadzir, Tan Chin Kuan and Zulkifli Yusoff. GMCA is not limited to only showing these selected artists but intends to continually search for those with critical acclaim, whether young emerging artists or those in their mid careers for future exhibitions.

Reaching out to both local and international markets to create awareness

The GMCA serves to create awareness of Malaysian art by ensuring that these works are accessible to the public at major art events. Hopefully the Malaysian Art Expo will be the first of many such events. Currently, access to Malaysian art is through public galleries and auction houses. Showing at art fairs creates yet another option in reaching out. We have to recognise the reality of the lack of infrastructure development in the management of Malaysian art which prevents or inhibits this acceptance on an international platform. GMCA’s entry into the Malaysian Art Expo is a step into this direction. GMCA subsequently hopes to venture into the international art fairs.
