2nd e-book Project

#The curator will personally invite 50 artists only from all over the world to participate in this project.

Dear friends;

     The world is now suffering from Coronavirus, a disease which was first identified in Wuhan, China and has since spread globally, resulting in an ongoing pandemic.  It is a highly infectious disease that easily spread between people during close contact and thus affecting all kinds of movements and activities. The world seems to be interrupted and stopped. It may be that some of our loved ones, acquaintances, or even our families are affected by this pandemic. As painters, the surroundings and situations often trigger the idea for us to express our voices through works of art, such as drawing, painting, print, photography or sculpture. In March/April 2020, the Faculty of Fine Art, National Academy of Arts, Culture & Heritage (ASWARA) MALAYSIA announced an 'art call' to produce an ART JOURNALS named COVIXED (1st e-book project). The e-book will be launched by the Minister of Art & Culture Malaysia in the middle of June 2020. 


       In the wake of this success, the Faculty of Fine Art has launched an international art call to produce The International Collaboration Art Project titled 'THE BRIDGE' (2nd e-book project). Only 50 selected artists worldwide are invited to join the collaboration project. The theme of the artworks produced by the artists must represent current situation during the pandemic but not necessarily confined to COVID 19. Nude is not allowed. Artists are free to use any types of medium in their works.
