Saturday – A Talk on The ‘Globalizability’ of Lat’s Work @ THE CUBE**, 2.30pm
The talk titled The Work of Lat in the Age of Globalizability as hosted by the University of Malaya’s Visual Art Department will be presented by Dr. Fiona Lee. Her interests on post-colonial studies bring Lat’s celebrated comical works to focus, relating it to the role of how race plays a part in post-colonial modernity, which is a large part of what his work represents that unfortunately goes unnoticed by casual readers.

Sunday – The Opening of Make Art Not War, A Showcase of 10 Indonesian Artists @ FINDARS, 3pm
Running from 19 to 23 February ’17, Make Art Not War is an exhibition showcasing the works of 10 Indonesian artists with a simple message; that of peace through art. Quoting Edgar Degas’ famous quote, “Art is not what you see, but what you make others see,” they intend to express a kind of serenity that’s oftentimes difficult to articulate orally or via prose. Expect works from Ady ‘Oi’ Rasatya, Adrian Bima, Ken Terror, Bharata Yudha, Jo’rwk, Semogabarokahwerk, Oik Wasfuk, RupaRusak, Raampunks, and Teguh Susanto.
