THIS year is another milestone for National Art Gallery (NAG) as it celebrates its 60th anniversary.

To mark this special year, NAG launched a calendar for its 2018 programmes together with the Kuala Lumpur Biennale Catalogue and the Go Gallery app.

National Art Gallery director-general Prof Datuk Dr Mohamed Najib Ahmad Dawa urged youths to visit the gallery and view the artworks on exhibit.

“We always try to organise events that are suitable for all levels of society.

“This year we will focus more on activities such as art performances, carving and activities for families,” he said.

He added that NAG would be opening a branch in Langkawi in March that will focus on upskilling and reskilling artists and curators.

The calendar is accessible through the Go Gallery apps, which can be found using the keyword “LPSVN”.

The mobile application is aimed at providing convenience to art collectors and gallery visitors to get the latest information on programmes organised by NAG as well as art exhibitions being held in Malaysia.

Meanwhile, the Kuala Lumpur Biennale Catalogue features a collection of beautiful art pieces and details of their artists.

The Biennale show opened last year on Nov 1 and will continue until March 30.
