INURED: Solo exhibition by artist James Ly

Minut Init Art Social begins the New Year with a solo exhibition, INURED by artist and university lecturer James Ly, 15th to 24th January 2015 from 8.30pm till 1am.

Web definition of inured: accustomed/harden/toughened/seasoned/tempered/conditioned to something, especially something unpleasant.

I invited a friend who, while a layman, can appreciate art to CLEANSE by Sophia Kamal recently, and while browsing the exhibition, she expressed much appreciation of James Ly's works.

Now that James is going to have his solo exhibition, let's see her reaction to more of James paintings.

Standard Chartered Bank: Cash emergency

Was caught short of cash during one of those public holidays. In this case it was 14 December 2015, Selangor only public holiday for winning the Malaysia. I made a trip to Standard Chartered Bank @ Damansara Uptown. Aiyo, closed. So what to do, got to borrow from a friend.

However, after this unfortunate incident, I realized that Standard Chartered Bank @ TTDI is bur a short drive away and is located in the Federal Territory, thus opened as that day is not a public holiday for the Federal Territory.

And this fact should be known to clients of SCB Taman Tun Dr Ismail, if you are caught by a Federal Territory public holiday and you need to have counter service, just drive over to SCB @ Damansara Uptown.

Minut Init Art Social has expanded

A few years ago, a group of friends started their venture named Minut Init — a then fledgling art gallery — as ‘Best Art Venue’. Since then, the gallery has expanded itself both literally and figuratively to accommodate an array of events that encompass all forms of art — be it music, fashion, or poetry, to name a few. The gallery has recently expanded to a second floor — just below the gallery — where people are welcomed to lounge around with friends or recently acquainted strangers.

"Minut Init is punk rock-esque art space, like the smoky underground confined art spaces of the LA do-it-yourself art scene’s glory days. It has been home to alt-art exhibitions such as the new media-inclined Made in Phones and counter culture-sounding Tahi Cicak. It’s easier to name a bigger art venues, but we say let’s give a round of applause to the smaller guys too." - (Best Art Venue, Juice Best Of 2011)
