Guests Curators from Germany, Japan and Hong Kong will attend the festival in person, they are Michael Brynntrup, Hiroaki Sato, Katsuyuki Hattori, Kotaro Tanaka, and Phoebe Man Ching Ying. These invited guests will each present a Guest Program featuring works from their respective countries. Additionally, video artist and scholar Michael Brynntrup is the KLEX Feature Artist for this year’s festival. Brynntrup will present a retrospective program with personal works dating from 1986-present.

KLEX is very grateful to host these aspiring artists and scholars at our little festival here in Kuala Lumpur! We anticipate interesting exchanges of inspiration and invaluable conversations at KLEX 2011. We’re also very curious to see what the Malaysian audience’s reaction will be to these selected experimental works from this region and across the world.
