When visits to art galleries are out of the question, what happens next? Many local galleries in Malaysia are looking to engage with their audience online. Their doors might be closed to the public until April 14 (the last day of the Government's movement control order to contain the Covid-19 outbreak), but they are trying to find new ways to reach out to people. Behind the scenes, it is business as usual – as much as they can get it to be anyway.
Lim Wei-Ling, founder of Wei-Ling Gallery and Wei-Ling Contemporary shares that she doesn’t see this pandemic as a huge shift for the gallery or the industry.
