AFK Book Launch - 2009

In 2009, then Deputy Prime Minister Malaysia, Tan Sri Dato’ Hj Muhyiddin Hj Mohd Yassin launched the MALAYSIAN CONTEMPORARY ART: THE ALIYA AND FAROUK KHAN COLLECTION book (AFK Collection Book), a tribute to the depth and breadth of contemporary artistic talent here in Malaysia. The book showcases works from the private collection of Aliya & Farouk Khan, who have made an impact on the Malaysian art scene through their support of contemporary Malaysian artists and their analytical, systematic approach to building their collection. 

At 932 pages, 13”x 13“ and weighing in at a hefty 10kgs, the book showcases the best, brightest, boldest and most inspiring art, sculpture and installation works of over 85 Malaysian artists, depicted across close to 900 images. The launch was held at Bangsar Shopping Centre, Kuala Lumpur, where selected works from the collection were also displayed.
