Ismail Hashim: Essays, Interviews & Archives

Two publications have been realised by the Ismail Hashim project over the period of 2 years.

  • Unpack Repack: A Tribute to Ismail Hashim (1940-2013) – the Tribute catalog features personal accounts from the artist’s family, friends and contemporaries and the challenges confronted by the Ismail Hashim’s project team in undertaking this project in archiving the Ismail Hashim’s estate.
  • Ismail Hashim: Essays, Interviews & Archives – this monograph comprises four parts: Part I has four essays that contextualise Ismail’s early formative years. They elucidate the people and art historical developments that shaped his works, and analyse their formal, aesthetic and thematic thrusts. In Part II, the monograph shifts from the intellectual and theoretical to the personal. Parts III and IV are to be read and seen as reflective of each other, and constitute the core of the Ismail Hashim Project, an experiment with a breadth and scope likely never attempted before in Malaysia.

‘Ismail Hashim: Essays, Interviews & Archives’ monograph is on sale at RM70, and available now at Gallery 3A (Balai Seni Visual Negara, KL), Artemis Art (Publika, KL), Fergana Art Space (The Whiteaways Arcade, Penang) and soon to be available at more bookstores.

The ‘Unpack Repack: A Tribute to Ismail Hashim (1940-2013)’ tribute catalog is also on sale at RM50. Or both as a set for RM100.
