Khazanah Nasional Berhad (Khazanah) is pleased to present our virtual art gallery, named Galeri Khazanah. We are happy to share with all Malaysians, and visitors from around the world, the art pieces produced by Malaysian artists, stitching beautiful stories and narratives together. Our art pieces were acquired gradually since our inception in 1994, and the collection serves as a fragment of the nation’s institutional memory. continue…

Alongside other corporate custodians of the nation’s cultural assets for future generations, Galeri Khazanah aims to preserve and conserve these historical gems and to offer the global audience a glimpse of our cultural heritage through the perspective of Malaysian artists.

Through this digital platform, Galeri Khazanah strives to provide knowledge accessibility amid global demographic shifts and to cultivate heritage appreciation via the digitalisation of our artworks. This includes the process of taking inventory of physical artworks, scanning, and storing their data prior to showcasing them in thematic exhibitions.

We hope that Galeri Khazanah will be an avenue for the enduring appreciation of Malaysia’s artistic talents and to cultivate vibrant communities for Malaysians.

At Khazanah, the work that we do touches the lives of a wide range of people. Over the years, we have woven threads into Malaysia’s rich social fabric that in turn contribute towards the development of this nation of ours.

As part of our Advancing Malaysia strategy, we aim to build capacity and spur vibrant communities for the benefit of Malaysians, and we are proud to be a passionate advocate for the preservation, appreciation, and recognition of local arts, heritage, and culture.

This is reflected in our efforts in developing talents by providing opportunities for emerging Malaysian artists via the Khazanah Arts Residency, as well as various arts, heritage, and public spaces initiatives through our foundation, Yayasan Hasanah.

Together, we support the preservation of our artistic and cultural heritage in Advancing Malaysia that we can be proud of in the eyes of the world.
