Title: Go Block- Vol. 5 Contemporary Expanded Printmaking Residency Project
Dates: 17 May – 17 June 2022
Venues: Muzium & Galeri Tuanku Fauziah (MGTF) USM
Go Block is an initiative of a group artists who made their first exhibition at Petronas Gallery in 2009, curated by Badrolhisham Tahir. The group led by Juhari Said was leter joined by Zulkifli Yusof, Kim Ng, Izan Tahir, and Shahrul Jamili. The term Go Block was chosen because it has the potential to carry a variety of related meanings with print art. In english, it can be interpreted as celebrating the block print (Go..... Block!) or discarding directly the block (off you go, block!), other than the element of joking in the sense of collection of languages in the archipelago that carry meaning stupidity (stupid).
So far Go Block has presented four exhibitions and workshops locally and internationally. Go Block for 2022 features four permanent members and guest artists. Permanent members are Juhari Said, Shahrul jamili, Faizal Suhif, and Samsudin Wahab. The guest artists are Awang Damit, Jalaini Abu Hasan, Stephen Menon, Haafiz Shahimi, Jerome Manjat, Rizo Leong, Agnes Lau, Fadhli Ariffin, and Fadli Mokhtar. The exhibition is complimented by a 'Talk by Juhari Said', 'Printmaker & Paper Workshop' and ' Pohon Kehidupan'. a community co-creation project with children from SK Seri Lindungan Raja, Sedim, Kedah.
