Elio D’Anna, Co-founder of HOFA Gallery, explains, "With the emergence of new AI models and techniques, a profound technological evolution occurred in 2023. ‘New Beginnings’ captures the first major works conceived and produced in the post-transition period, juxtaposing them with early era AI creations of immense significance. It effectively narrates the evolution of AI-generated artistry while simultaneously redefining contemporary perceptions of art in the digital age."

‘New Beginnings’ showcases a diverse spectrum of mediums and methodologies to reflect on AI’s journey and its dual role as both inspiration and instrument in the artistic process. The art creators selected for this showcase are at the vanguard of integrating AI technologies with creative expression through their innovative practices.

Show highlights include:

  • Niceaunties, a Singapore-based architect and AI artist, who draws inspirations from the rich tapestry of her culture and explores themes of aging, personal freedom and everyday life through generative AI and digital art.
  • Multi award-winning Sougwen 愫君 Chung, a Chinese-Canadian artist, who is widely regarded as a pioneer in human-machine collaboration. Recognised as one of TIME100’s esteemed AI innovators, their MEMORY (Drawing Operations Unit: Generation 2) piece has the distinction of being the first AI model acquired by London’s Victoria and Albert Museum.
  • New York based artist Emily Xie harnesses algorithms to create life like textures and forms, navigating delicate balances between chance and control, and the abstract and representational. Her work has been showcased internationally, including at the Singapore ArtScience Museum and the Armory Show.
  • Agoria, the visionary artist celebrated for his avant-garde BioGenArt, has captivated the art world with his groundbreaking exhibition at the Musée d’Orsay. As a DJ and a master of digital artistry, he is poised to unveil ‘I Feel Good’, a cinematic exploration that weaves together the complex tapestry of AI and humanity, all viewed through the discerning eye of an anthropologist.
  • Artist Elman Mansimov is a Senior Applied Scientist, who is known for pioneering research in AI. His 2015 alignDRAW project, the first text-to-image model that marked a new era of human-machine collaboration, has been compared to the revolutionary impact of the first fixed photographs in the 1820s.

HOFA, founded in 2012, specialises in curating and showcasing contemporary artworks that blend traditional techniques with digital innovation. The gallery’s dedication to merging these elements is symbolic of its broader mission to catalyse a renaissance in art acquisition, connecting the tangible with the digital to enchant a discerning global audience. Similarly, Fellowship aims to bridge the past and present, shaping the future of art by leveraging blockchain technology to introduce art to a new generation of collectors.

Sunny Cheung, who oversees Design & Architecture curation at M+, Asia’s first global museum of contemporary visual culture, says in his curatorial statement about ‘New Beginnings’, "The recent advancements in AI and generative art processes often feel like magic. Through this exhibition, we explore this magic in AI’s evolution and its impact on creative practices. The artists selected have embraced digital tools to create works that reflect new, faster and collaborative production methods. With vast data flows and virtualisation, artists can draw from lived experiences to create new meanings."

He adds "Like all great relationships, we don’t necessarily know where the relationship with AI and art is heading, but we are excited by the new possibilities that come with New Beginnings."

FOSTER ENVIRONMENTAL CONSCIOUSNESS DURING AIDILFITRI CELEBRATION – NRES


PUTRAJAYA, The Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Sustainability (NRES) encourages the public to foster environmental consciousness during the Hari Raya Aidilfitri festivities.

Its minister Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad said that one of the practices that can be adopted is to avoid food wastage and use more eco-friendly utensils.

“We often opt to save costs and avoid washing dishes so we tend to use plastic or paper products for our gatherings.

“We have the choice to use regular utensils, or if needed, avoid plastic and polystyrene, and if necessary, opt for paper which can biodegrade unlike plastic,” he said after the NRES’ monthly assembly and iftar event held today.

He emphasised that everyone should play a role in ensuring that the choices made during the Hari Raya celebration do not have a negative impact on the environment.

“I hope that all of us can make this year’s Hari Raya Aidilfitri more positive in terms of environmental sustainability and cultivate these practices,” he said.

In his spee
ch, Nik Nazmi stressed that all NRES members, including departments and agencies, should lead by example in adopting sustainable practices, like reducing single-use plastics, to lessen environmental impacts.

“NRES, through the Yayasan Hijau Malaysia, actively promotes green living by providing alternatives to businesses and the public for composting food waste.

“Nowadays, food waste isn’t just seen as useless garbage but holds potential and can benefit the environment when turned into compost. This initiative aims to lessen the amount of food waste ending up in landfills,” he added.

PENANG LEVERAGING ASSETS TO DRAW VISITORS


GEORGE TOWN, The Penang government is utilising every opportunity available, especially the state’s internationally recognised advantages, to attract more tourists to Penang.

State Tourism and Creative Economy Committee (PETACE) chairman Wong Hon Wai said Penang is using these opportunities to enhance existing tourism products as new attractions, including natural beauty, delicious food, cultural heritage, traditional customs and unique arts.

He said efforts have been made to promote Penang’s attractions to international tourists so they can enjoy new experiences, and discover and get to know the distinctiveness of Penang.

“We introduce various tourism themes and packages, such as weddings, conferences, medical exhibitions, cruise ships and cultural heritage, to provide a variety of tourism experiences,” he told Bernama today.

He said this when commenting on a report by Post Office, a leading UK retailer, which named Penang as the 11th cheapest tourism destination worldwide.

The announcement was made as
part of the Holiday Money Report 2024 edition, where Penang was not only recognised as the 11th best destination worldwide but was also conferred the title of the fourth best destination in Asia.

Wong said the current exchange rate of the ringgit is favourable to the tourism industry, offering foreign tourists the opportunity to enjoy various culinary and entertainment experiences at reasonable prices in Penang.

He said Penang’s tourism products are known for being good and high-quality choices, allowing tourists to enjoy stays in luxury hotels at reasonable costs.

Upcoming projects like the Penang LRT, Penang International Airport (LTAPP) expansion and Penang Hill cable car system would further strengthen Penang’s position as a leading tourist destination, he said.

“All stakeholders and every strata of society should join forces to develop the tourism industry in Penang,’ he added.

Wong said that in the past six months, he had visited Mumbai, Chennai, Kochi and New Delhi to promote Penang and is confide
nt that the visa-free travel policy will bring in more Indian tourists by the end of the year.

“The implementation of a 30-day visa exemption between Malaysia and China has given a significant boost to the tourism industry, but the positive effects of the visa waiver policy for India are still not visible,” he said.

He said the number of international cruise ships arriving in Penang has also increased.

In the first two months of this year, there were 45 voyages bringing 131,208 tourists, compared to 31 arrivals with 108,039 tourists in the same period last year.

“During the same period, the number of domestic and foreign tourists arriving at LTAPP increased by 26.93 per cent to 577,329 people from 454,839 people in the corresponding period last year. I believe the number of tourists will continue to increase,” he said.

STAMP MUSEUM: MCO, WORKER SHORTAGE AMONG FACTORS FOR COMPLETION DELAY – EXCO


SHAH ALAM, The construction of the Stamp Museum in Section 14 here is experiencing delays, with one of the factors attributed to the Movement Control Order (MCO) period, thus pushing back its expected completion date.

Selangor Housing and Culture Committee chairman Borhan Aman Shah said for now the construction progress for Selangor’s first stamp museum is at 65 per cent, and the project is expected to be fully completed by 2026.

He said although there was a construction delay from the set schedule, work is ongoing and closely monitored by him.

“The museum was scheduled to be ready by this year, however, the project’s progress was disrupted during the implementation of the MCO due to a manpower shortage at the construction site,” he said when contacted by Bernama here today.

“There was indeed project delays but work is ongoing and being closely monitored too by the Public Works Department (JKR).’

Borhan said apart from the MCO factor, there were also several technical issues that contributed to the dela
y, however, the contractors involved had been warned to complete the construction works as stipulated.

Previously, Borhan was reported to have said that the state government would open three new museums early this year in order to continue efforts to preserve and document Selangor’s history, heritage and culture.

According to him, besides the Stamp Museum, the other two museums are the Selangor Art Gallery in Shah Alam and Textile Museum in Klang.

Meanwhile, when commenting on the progress of the renovation work at the Sultan Alam Shah Museum in Section 14, Borhan said the museum is expected to reopen to the public in August at the earliest.

The Sultan Alam Shah Museum has been closed since 2019 for the upgrading works of its galleries, namely the History Gallery, Custom and Culture Gallery as well as Nature Gallery.
