During a challenging year of lockdowns and art galleries and museum closures in 2020, Ilham Gallery made strides with its digital platform, by offering virtual tours of exhibitions and introducing new online projects and content.

“One of the unexpected positives of the MCO was that Ilham was able to transition its programmes onto the digital platform, by publishing video content like artist interviews, curatorial tours and other public programmes on our social media sites. This allowed us to connect to much larger audiences, outside the Klang Valley and Malaysia, ” says gallery director Rahel Joseph.
