Since opening in 2015, Ilham Gallery has strived to present thought-provoking exhibitions that engage and provoke viewers in a myriad of ways. This month, the space hosts a group exhibition that delves into the complex history and current situation of Thailand’s Patani region, an area plagued by conflict for decades.
Featuring the works of 27 artists, the exhibition seeks to highlight the underlying causes and everyday realities of the conflict. From visual artists and architects to filmmakers and beyond, the exhibition is the result of 13 years of experiences distilled into one showcase.

100 Markah = A+ ?
Aspiring artist MeiKei Ho marks a major milestone with her debut solo exhibition at Taksu Kuala Lumpur this month, inviting viewers to question the state of Malaysian education and how societal pressures have shaped, for better or worse, its holistic development.
Each piece in the collection, composed of dozens and sometimes hundreds of tiny colourful print-like drawings, comes with a title that hopes to spark discussion on how we measure success in today’s age. Should 100 marks really equate to an A+?
