Virtual sessions to lorry tour: welcome to the Rahime Harun art archival project

The ‘Melawati - This Place: Displays: Displace’ tour session, curated by Mark Teh, paraded artworks from the collection of the late Rahime Harun around Taman Melawati in Kuala Lumpur on Jan 29. Photo: A.P. Art Gallery

If you happened to be in Taman Melawati in Kuala Lumpur late last month, you might have seen a lorry carrying artworks from the collection of the late Rahime Harun (1954-2008), former National Art Gallery director-general, art administrator, collector and artist/writer.

If you had lingered, you would have seen this same truck making its rounds around the neighbourhood several times, but with a different set of paintings each time, including Ahmad Zakii Anwar’s The Dancers (1994), Ismail Zain’s My Friend Vincent (1988), Bhanu Achan’s Alam (1992) and Lim Joo Sun's Chinese Wedding (1988).
