Ipoh International Art Festival 2021 Pre-Fest

The Ipoh International Art Festival (IIAF) is an art festival organised by PORT, bringing a series of exhibitions consisting of drawings, prints, installations, audio-visual and art performances highlighting the contemporary style and elements. The inaugural edition was held last year in 2019 with the main objective of becoming an entity in giving Ipoh a signature festival that all art practitioners and lovers can look forward to every year.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the festival this year dubbed as “IIAF2021 PRE-FEST” is happening online from 12 to 20 December with the elements that will be incorporated for upcoming festival in 2021.

With the theme of “BUDI: Pemanjangan Tradisi”, “IIAF2021 PRE-FEST” hopes to inspire creativity among the artists and creating new possibilities in the arts scene.
