Who are they and what they do

the-annexe-galleryLaunched in January 2007, the Annexe Gallery is a Contemporary Art Center. It is located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur in the Annexe Central Market building, just opposite Central Market. It is managed by Central Market Sdn Bhd, the private company who recently bought Central Market and revamped it.
It offers five galleries (all together 7000 sq ft / 650 m2) at levels 1 and 2 of the building, each of them with timber flooring and high ceilings. The galleries are spacious; they combine heritage and contemporary ambiances; and are suitable for any form of contemporary art: dance, theatre, music, talks, lectures, exhibitions, cinema….
Pang Khee Teik, the Arts Programme Director encourages experimental art forms and socio-political expressions. He believes that challenging local artists will allow them to dream, share their dream with the public and go further in their artistic creation and expression.
Easily accessible by all public transportation and located in the heart of KL, the Annexe reaches young Malaysian urbanites and international tourists. The very eclectic and innovative programme is an ongoing invitation to discover Malaysian contemporary arts and artists.
