From the launching of Jun Ong’s brilliant STAR/KL, to the numerous exhibitions held all over town, the announcement of the Krishen Jit fund recipients, DBKL’s Youth Festival, Gallery Gerimis opening, the burst of bamboo and traditional craft seen all over the city … not to mention choirs and concerts! Phew!

Shifting gears from @klwknd202, CENDANA presents Sensorium of Inversion/ Immersion (SENSORii), an immersive media art exhibition in conjunction with Art In The City 2021.

SENSORii is curated by Yap Sau Bin with music composition by Ahmad Muriz Che Rose, project managed by Melissa Teoh and technical direction by Fabu Design Sdn Bhd. It takes place from Dec 1-28 (closed on Mondays), between noon and 8pm, at REXKL. Admission is free but you’ll need a ticket (register here).
