19 local artists to display work at Dermaga Diraja

NINETEEN local artists will display their artworks for the Emerge Exclusive: Retrospective at Dermaga Diraja Art Gallery, from today until August 2.

The exhibition celebrates the Emerge series organised by Creative Space Art Gallery and Studio after hosting seven exhibitions over the years and reaching its first capstone of recording 53 of the emerging Bruneian artists.

The exhibition aims to provide an insight into the development by contemporary artists in producing works that are distinctly ‘Bruneian’ either on an aesthetic or conceptual level while still maintaining the ability to serve as a vehicle for a message that can transcend cultural boundaries and effectively communicate to a global audience.

The retrospective exhibition will also showcase the development of the gallery in a chronological timeline featuring artists and works that have been presented in past Emerge exhibitions.

The exhibition is dedicated to the artists and passionate individuals in the industry who have actively participated and contributed to the project’s success.

The exhibition is open to the public daily from 9am to 4pm.
