#RIUHVisits: MoMo’s Art Fair is back!


The concept of viewing various artist's work in separate hotel rooms recently introduced in Kuala Lumpur post-pandemic, and MoMo’s Hotel was one of the firsts to organise this format of exhibition. If you were not able to catch the previous Art Fair at MoMo’s back in March, you’re in for a treat this time!

Participating artists are each given a hotel room to curate and set-up and make it their own. This gives the audience a chance to immerse in the artists’ worlds and explore different perspectives towards the artworks.

To give you guys an idea on how it will look like, see how the previous art fair went:

1. Andy Adlin

Born in Melaka, Andy came from an architecture background. He often interplays between visual exploration, highly surreal artworks ranging from paintings to doodles, most ideas came from reading art history, philosophy and practice as well as imagination and nightmares in my many attempts to interplay and understand fine art ideas since childhood.

3. Humana Art

Meet Vanessa Foo, is a graphic designer and freelance illustrator based in Kuala Lumpur. She created “Humana”, a quirky character who inspired her to demonstrate the fantasy world in her mind.
