CREATIVE Space Art Gallery and Studio is currently hosting an exhibition titled ‘Pause and Rewind’, which pays tributes to Brunei’s senior artists at the Sengkurong gallery, from January 7 to February 24.

‘Pause and Rewind’ marks the beginning of a new initiative by Creative Space, in line with its mission to record, conserve and preserve Brunei’s artistic-cultural heritage, alongside projects such as ‘EMERGE’ which focusses on Brunei’s young and emerging artists.

The exhibition’s curatorial team is made up of local youths from the creative industry: Khairul Ibrahim (Curator), Osveanne Osman (Project Manager), Ayumi Yusof (Marketing Executive) and Amalina Abu Bakar (Designer).
