Introduced by HOM Art Trans in 2007, Young & New is an open call for Malaysian artists aged 35 and under to showcase their talent to a wider audience. This group exhibition offers positive opportunities for artists to establish themselves in the Malaysian art scene. It aims to nurture young artists to succeed by providing a solid platform for talents to be discovered and developed.
Young & New is a stepping-stone for artists to begin their professional careers and to attain their goals, stimulated by infectious creative energy fuelled by fellow artists. As the lifeblood of the visual art community, these young talents will be given the support they need to inspire others through this effort.
The sixth edition of Young & New received 100 submissions by graduates from public and private art institutions as well as by self-taught artists across the nation. A shortlist of 50 artists with more than 50 artworks will be on display at HOM Art Trans, Kuala Lumpur from 23 January until 6 February 2016.
