Pavilion Kuala Lumpur aims to unite people from all walks of life under one hub, by bringing to life culturally-rich traditions that are close to Malaysian’s hearts. This Raya, we place the limelight on the age-old art of Songket-weaving by introducing the nation’s heritage to the lives of urban shoppers and tourists. To revitalize the art of Songket-weaving, Pavilion Kuala Lumpur will be having an exhibition to feature the rich origins of Songket-weaving.

Also look forward to an exhibition hosted by Ken Yang, an international Malaysian painter and royal portraitist who lived and worked in Paris for more than 12 years. He is a first-class historical painter and lends crucial importance to the preservation of traditions. As an artist who makes it his mission to revitalize forgotten artwork, he is a perfect fit for Pavilion Kuala Lumpur’s Hari Raya 2014 theme. Yang’s artwork and royal portraits will be displayed at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur throughout the Hari Raya celebrations.
