About Vallette Gallery

Vallette Gallery represents Malaysian and international artists in paintings, sculptures, photographies and art installations, and is looking to build a trusting and strong relationship between artists, art lovers and friends.

In Kuala Lumpur, Vallette Gallery is promoting Malaysian artists in Malaysia as a first step of recognition in their own country, but also making a point of showcasing the artwork in France, in order to expose the most established Malaysian artists in Europe. Valette Gallery also aims to offer a forum for contemporary art, presenting works by both emerging young Malaysian artists and international artists.

Vallette Gallery seeks not only to back current events that bring communities together, but more importantly become a centre for art lovers. The gallery encourages creative excellence by providing an environment for communication, expertise, sharing and mentoring within the community of artists.

"We are looking to Malaysian and Asian art to create a real platform between continents and promote art in all its different forms, and we believe that providing a unique art experience to our visitors is essential. Our exhibitions, social events and art talks give them an insight into the contemporary Malaysian and international art market.

Vallette Gallery is committed to building a new momentum within the Malaysian art scene, by showing works of art that can expand horizons, open minds and view the world and life in general through different eyes.

Art is not just decoration for our walls, but a connection with our deep inner selves and the world around us."

Patrice Vallette, Founder and Director of Vallette Gallery

    West Bund Art & Design opened its fifth edition to VIPs on Wednesday, having more than doubled in size to welcome 115 galleries. The fair feels big this year: In addition to the huge main hall—once a manufacturing warehouse—a new hall has been added, creating a combined floor plan of 20,000 square meters (about 215,000 square feet).

    The continued rise in buying power and sophistication of Chinese collectors has led many of the international galleries in the main hall to bring Basel-level presentations—principle among them David Zwirner’s booth, which features just one work, Dan Flavin’s untitled (to Sonja) (1969). Chinese galleries and artists were more present in the other exhibition areas, and delivered a number of discoveries from around the region. Here are 10 works worth seeking out at West Bund, which runs through November 11th.

    It’s like a benevolent father giving the keys to the heirloom Lamborghini to an unconventional son and his smart girlfriend. Deep trust is involved, but also risk. You never know what might happen.

    The situation behind “Spitzmaus Mummy in a Coffin and Other Treasures,” an exhibition opening today at the grand Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, isn’t so far off the above scenario. Celebrated filmmaker Wes Anderson and his partner, the writer and illustrator Juman Malouf, were asked to take a metaphorical joyride through the history of art, craft, natural wonders, and other discoveries. They’ve created a show with pieces culled entirely from the museum’s 14 collections and several outside ones, like that of the natural history museum across the way.
