Home / News / Art Expo Malaysia PLUS • 10th Edition @Kuala Lumpur // The Embassy Of Colombia features ‘Treasure Of Bachué’ Exhibition by Katherine Gailer

webbanner_layerThe Art Expo Malaysia (AEM) is celebrating its 10th edition in 2016 as the longest running international art fair in Southeast Asia, a rainbow package of art from the East and West, from the South and Central America, apart from Central Asia. This year, the art fair runs from October 20 to 23, at Matrade Exhibition and Convention Centre (MECC), featuring 60 established and reputable art galleries from 30 countries, exhibiting 2,000 pieces of artworks (including paintings, sculptures, installation and photography), under one roof.

The Art Expo Malaysia Plus is an upgraded art fair in standards and procedures with a spruced up presentation. Also, ensuring that more reputable artists, bona-fide better run galleries and artwork stipulations get priority.
AEM was started in 2007 by art philanthropist Datuk Vincent Sim Tiak Choo, with the dream of having an art fair to bring together some of the finest artworks from all over the world to Kuala Lumpur, under one roof. Back then, exhibition spaces were allocated to artists in exchange of artworks donation.

In 2008, his son Sim Pojinn who is a business consultant stepped in to lead, revamped the entire business model and organisation, bringing AEM a big leap forward. His brother Sim Polenn subsequently joined in 2009. They understand the importance of an art fair to the development of the visual arts industry, thus, together they upgraded AEM in meeting international expectations, made linkages with more than 80 media with outreach across 62 countries, and instrumental in getting participation of reputable galleries at home and abroad, to sustain AEM as a successful annual art fair until today!

The Embassy of Colombia presents in this year’s Art Expo Malaysia Plus ‘Treasure Of Bachué’ exhibition by Katherine Gailer. With a showcase of six paintings inspired by people and mythical tales from Colombia,the artist aims to unfold a narrative in which strengths and dreams of the Land of Bachué are revealed. Bachué is a goddess that according to the Muiscas (people from the central Andean highlands of present-day Colombia) is the mother of humanity, a source of life and her treasure remains hidden in the sacred mountains and people of Colombia. Most of the paintings presented in this exhibition portray women going through an experience of transformation, representing the different aspects of a land that is woven, where the tropical rain forests are embodied and diversity springs out of the nests of golden women.
