The Japan Foundation, Kuala Lumpur presents ESCAPE from the SEA, a group exhibition featuring 14 contemporary artists from Malaysia, Japan and Southeast Asia. From video installations to performance pieces, these curated works of art all centre around the theme of identity, the sense of belonging and the history of border politics both near and far. Ranging from personal experiences to a wider view of geographical borders and even the erasing of this sort of separation entirely, ESCAPE from the SEA is an interesting way to tackle this pertinent issue.

When: 24 February to 23 April 2017
Where: National Art Gallery, 10am to 6pm daily
              Art Printing Works Sdn. Bhd., 12pm to 8pm daily
Tickets: Free admission
