Palettes of Unity 2020: Online Photography Exhibition

Petaling Jaya – On  12th August 2020, 60 students from IACT’s Exposure Class participated in an online exhibition, titled ‘Palettes of Unity’ showcasing their amazing photography skills on Malaysian culture and heritage. Both still images and cinemagraphs took centrestage in this exhibition which also made up a part of the student’s final year project.

Image titled “Cheers!” showcases a group of Malaysian youth sharing a light moment.

Led by Ms. Nicola Wong from the School of Creative Arts, the event was nothing short but a feast for the eyes depicting the rich history and vivid lives of Malaysians in the new normal through the lenses of our nation’s youth. As we approach Merdeka Day, it was a great opportunity to highlight the true meaning of “merdeka” and how we stood united as one nation amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

The exhibition also struck a chord with one of the audience, Kanichlevan Ravi, who remarked the stills as “-subtlety of many unchanging paradoxical uniqueness of Malaysia. The masked characters in the stills which may seem unnoticeable at first glance, marks a new page in Malaysia’s well captured album of diversity…”.


Kudos to the students of IACT for capturing the symbolic colours of Malaysia!
