Vans Malaysia and Tun Perak Co-Op bring you the debut solo exhibition by Kide Baharuddin entitled Pe’el. This exhibition opened on 17 July and will run until 2 August 2020 at the newly activated Tun Perak Co-Op situated on Jalan Tun Perak, Kuala Lumpur.
Pe’el is a walk down memory lane captured by Kide’s colourful imagination as an interpretation of old Malaysiana told by his parents. Feeding off inspiration from small towns and kampongs in the 60s and 70s, Kide retells the wonderful days of yesteryears in fashion of how manuscripts were illustrated in times before the advent of print. Hailing from Kg. Sawah Lebar, Negeri Sembilan - Kides work has been included in many group exhibitions, locally and regionally. In 2017, Kide made his mark as he emerged champion for Vans Asia Custom Culture competition, gaining him recognition as much as respect in the streetwear community and globally.
Kide’s style of work has captivated the hearts of many Malaysians, and he returns the energy through an exhibition that showcases 12 paintings, a sculpture and specially reworked wooden window frames for an immersive exhibition that will take you back in time and ponder about the good old days. This inaugural exhibition for Tun Perak Co-Op is a sight to behold especially for fans of Kide, where one can enjoy Kide’s distinct mesmerising style unfolding a myriad of stories bound only by canvas and the viewer’s imagination.
Visitors can also experience Pe’el and the exhibited artworks online via augmented reality with narrations voiced by Datuk Lat and curator Sharina Shahrin, follow special Zoom Art Tours by guest curators and join in experiential walking tours by Jane’s Walk and Curiocity KL. Plus, get to stream live music performances brought to you by Tapau Asia.
Pe’el by Kide Baharuddin will be exhibiting until 2 August 2020 at Tun Perak Co-Op and via www.tunperak.com
