Grit & Grace: The Grandeur of Monochrome Malaysia

January 6, 2018 - January 21, 2018

The Grit & Grace photo project by photojournalist SC Shekar is one of the initiatives supported by Khazanah Nasional to celebrate Malaysia’s journey and achievements as a nation under the ‘Negaraku Negara Kita’ campaign.  The project started as a 330-page large format photobook showcasing the beauty of Malaysia’s landscapes and her people, captured in black and white photographs from all states within Malaysia. From the photobook, Khazanah got inspiration to do the Grit & Grace exhibition as they believe the beauty and grandeur of Malaysia must be shared to instil a sense of ownership and pride for our country.

Following its premiere exhibition in Kuala Lumpur, which aptly commenced on Malaysia Day (16 September 2017), the Grit & Grace exhibition now embarks on a nationwide roadshow.  The exhibition in The Old Courthouse in Kuching is the second stop for the tour after Johor Bharu, and will take place from 6th to 21st January 2018.   They have also partnered with Grab to offer discounted rides to the exhibition.
