Arts & Letters Society Kuala Lumpur

1 September @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

RM12

DK and friends together co-host a very special, once-off conversation salon at the National Gallery in Kuala Lumpur. This is a conversation salon about design, as well as a chance to pop in together to see the exhibition ‘Contemporary Design.’ Meet us at the 2F of the National Gallery at PCLO Cafe. (When you go up the escalators, turn to the left. You’ll see PCLO and a sign for ‘Arts & Letters Society’ on the A-board, there.)

‘SHOULD I GO?’ I want to answer the question, ‘Why should I go?’ It’s a good one, and for a long time I’ve just avoided answering it because to me it’s a natural thing to want to go to things where I have no idea what might happen, or whom I’ll meet, as long as it’s not ‘Saturday night-y’ stuff. I don’t much go for the drinking and bar thing, and I don’t care to ‘connect’ through WhatsApp texting strings. I prefer real life, in which someone is designing a kind of conversation space that has a set intention and by design makes it small in scale. And especially at a venue that I’m curious about anyway. So I’m looking for people who are looking for me.

Why take part? Maybe you’re ready to talk with new people about new things, in real life, without having to do the hard work of setting up the social space. Let DK do that work to design and host you in S P A C E, which is where we are talking with people internationally both online and in real life conversation salons and ateliers together, in order to build a frame for dialogue, exchange, new input, and fresh ideas. Mix it up, catch the art show, and take a break from everything that is your ‘usual routine’ to pop into S P A C E for a moment with us. DK will be hosting this pop-up Arts & Letters Society in KL for the second time, after having returned from a summer series of real life pop-up art installations and conversation salons in Finland. Lots to show, share, and dialogue about in real life on 1 Sept. Who should come? Those who are ready for something different, a change of the normal kind of meet up or party, and are wondering what happens when people who don’t know one another come together in a DK-designed ‘moment’ that we call ‘magic.’ The magic moment happens in S P A C E; we can talk about how, and all of that, later, but for now, this page is here to make the invitation. Will we see you? Why not show up, say yes. –AS

Ages 16+. Very limited seats. Max 12. RM 12 per person. Be sure to register to confirm your spot.
