For the second-year running, we are organizing SENIKITA – a visual arts exhibition showcasing the works of Singapore Malay artists and indirectly an annual survey of current artistic practice of the Malay community in Singapore. Past SeniKita (2020) is documented at: https://sites.google.com/kamaldollah.com/senikita-2020
SENIKITA 2021 is jointly organised with Wisma Geylang Serai (Precinct Department) and supported by the National Arts Council, Singapore.
The curatorial committee comprises of the following artist/ educators:
● Mr. Ahmad Abu Bakar
● Mr. Kamal Dollah
● Mr. Suhaimi Sukiyar
The objective of this exhibition is to showcase the works of artists in the Malay community. It also creates an opportunity for artists to interact and inspire one another regardless of age or genre of art practice. Awards of recognition are awarded to inspire greater art-practice. Artworks will be judged by a panel of jury. Awards will be presented at the opening ceremony to the deserving winners for first and runner-up ‘Best of Show’ award and one ‘Promising Artist’ award.
Artists are not restricted to any specific theme. However, this is an event for the general public at a communal space, thus we advise participants to present quality works-of-art that inspire and educate the masses. Artists are advised to be sensitive and considerate of the general audience.
An online catalogue featuring works with artist’s particulars will be published and electronically archived on the organisers website.
