Narratives in Malaysian Art Volume 2: Reactions - New Critical Strategies looks at the ways in which Malaysian artists have responded to socio-political events that have taken place in Malaysia, and also at the changing approaches and attitudes in art-making over the past 45 years. Featuring leading critical voices in Malaysian art from the 70s to the 90s, to those of a younger generation of artists, writers and researchers, this volume captures something of the underlying urgency and passion that have informed the development of contemporary Malaysian art and artistic practice. Contained within this volume are polemical tracts by artists and art groups, existing and newly commissioned essays, as well as interviews with artists, and excerpts from seminal exhibition texts.The volume is also illustrated with black-and-white and colour documentation of over 100 art works and events.
