- Wei-Ling gallery is a beautiful gallery housed in a pre-war shop lot in the historical area of Brickfields. Wei-Ling, the owner, brings the works of contemporary local artists to the forefront. They play host to up to 12 exhibitions a year. Besides featuring local artists, Wei-Ling Gallery also brings in works of foreign artist such as renowned Cuban artist Nelson Dominguez, Pakistani sculptor Amin Gulgee, and the photographic works of Michal. The building is itself a work of art. Crumbling and damaged – it was refurbished by Wei -Ling's dad, an architect. Expect plenty of wood, glass and whitewashed walls. Pay attention to the fragments of charred beams (a fire destroyed most of the shop house in 2004) among the newly laid rafters. The multi-leveled space is a successful mix of modern architecture and historical structure. Wei Ling in April 2011 opened Wei-Ling Contemporary at the Gardens Mall; a 3800 square foot of exhibition space to bring even more contemporary art events to the general public. It's a great place to discover the contemporary art scene in Malaysia.
