Sight Seen : Beautiful Malaysia With Flight - ILHAM

Kuala Lumpur - ILHAM

KL's latest public art gallery provides an excellent reason to admire close-up the slick 60-storey ILHAM Tower designed by Foster + Partners. With a mission to showcase modern and contemporary Malaysian art, ILHAM kicked off with a blockbuster show of works by Hoessein Enas (1924–95). There's no permanent collection, with exhibitions changing every three to four months.

Talks, performances, film screenings and children's workshops are also held here, often tying in with the theme of the current exhibition. Outside the tower the giant copper-clad sculptures are the first permanent public work by Chinese artist Ai Weiwei to be installed in Southeast Asia.
