Wawasan 2020: Townhall



31 December 2020 - 10 January 2021
Tun Perak Co-Op, Kuala Lumpur

Opening as we bring the year 2020 to a close, Wawasan 2020: Townhall is an exhibition by A+ Works of Art that reckons with the fault lines, reverberations and inheritance of Wawasan 2020. Wawasan 2020, also known as Vision 2020, was announced in 1991 by then Prime Minister Dr. Mahathir Mohamad to launch Malaysia into the status of a developed nation with a single Bangsa Malaysia.


To tell a story of Wawasan 2020 is to engage in disjuncture, anachronism and lateness. This exhibition, which opens at the close of the year 2020, brings together artists, writers and performers in the format of a townhall, a democratic space of discordance, disagreement and difference. It holds ground upon which a diverse set of viewpoints may be articulated, without presuming easy resolution. This townhall, like Wawasan 2020, exists as an ideal, but with far humbler ambitions.


The end of the year 2020 does not spell the death of Wawasan 2020. We instead present a collective re-reckoning.

List of Artists:
Azizan Paiman & Hamzah Yazd
Chang Fee Ming
Kenneth Chan/PB4000XL
L!PAS
Liew Kung Yu
Lim Sheau Yun
