SLOW CITY PENANG – AN INVITATION
From the New Mobility Fine Arts Collection, Summer 2017. From 1 July – 1 September
An online exhibit of shared photos, drawings, renderings, street art, child scribblings, videos, poems, proposed projects events . . . .illustrating these two very different sides of life in Penang: fast and slow. the good, the bad and the at times very ugly.
– See https://www.facebook.com/NewMobilityArts/ for details
We hope that Penangites and others will share their photographs, drawings, cartoons, etc. contrasting historical and current renderings of street scenes. Also if you have renderings illustrating proposed new projects, and contrasting them with another perhaps quieter and slower Penang.
