1Malaysia Contemporary Art Tourism Festival (1MCAT), a large-scale international art exhibition, was first organized in 2010! It was popular not only locally but also internationally and gained a reception of 42,000 visitors! With more of Malaysia’s States participating this year, exhibitions and events are also held in several shopping malls too.

Let’s take a look of the pictures on the launching of 1MCAT!

This three-month long festival brings different talented artists together as well as some notables.Suhaimi Fadzir, a fusion artist, is one of the participants! He also thinks that different exhibitions can motivate the young to fight for a career in contemporary art. Not only does the festival boost the economy of the country, but it also provides a platform for young artists to showcase their works to the world! More opportunities are given, and more local artists can pursue their dreams!

Through the package, people may also be able to visit artists’ studios, or attend art talks and exhibitions! Promoting the local art culture can provide young artists opportunities and let the others know more about art happenings in the society.

Chance of showcasing our works to the public can be scarce, but still possible! For all passionate Lomographers, don’t forget you are able to present your masterpieces internationally through our LomoHome!
