Balai Seni Art Series
Balai Seni Maybank is one of the country’s earliest corporate galleries. Established in the 1980s, Balai Seni Maybank played a pivotal role in contributing to the development of the local visual arts scene. Many of Malaysia’s established artists have exhibited at the Balai Seni Maybank. For more than a decade, Maybank Group has played a significant national and international role in promoting our shared cultural, artistic and historical heritage.
Maybank’s commitment to arts, culture and heritage has been sustained with a long history of support for local artist, photographers, graphic designers and writers. Balai Seni has touched the lives of thousands of people, the artistic works of more than 300 artists displayed in more than 25 exhibitions held since 1988 have inspired and encouraged new artists to pursue their dreams. Over the period we have helped more than 300 local artists, photographers, graphic designers and writers by sponsoring and promoting a wide range of events that celebrate Malaysia’s unique, diverse and vibrant national heritage. Exhibitions are often held in conjunction with national cultural festivals held at special visits from international State Visits and friendship events.
With the revival of the gallery under the current management of Maybank Foundation in line with its Community Investment agenda which is to ‘Promote Artistic Creativity of the Youths’, Balai Seni Maybank is poised to reclaim the glory of its heyday and to emerge as one of the leading exhibition venue in the capital.
