Galeri Petronas

Galeri Petronas is located at the base of the Petronas Twin Towers in the city of Kuala Lumpur, this exhibition centre is owned by PETRONAS, the national oil and gas corporation of Malaysia. It is set up with the objective to promote the development and preservation of art in Malaysia.

This is done by providing a venue for the displays of art, publications of Malaysian art, resource centre within the gallery and sponsoring documentations to encourage the progress of art in Malaysia.

  • Nusantara Journey showcases the PETRONAS Adventure Team's Nusantara Expedition to Indonesia, as captured by Masnor Ramli photography, paintings and videos.
  • Daerah Samad showcases over 100 sketches of national laureate poet Datuk A. Samad.
  • 50 Ways To Live in Malaysia presents half a century of 50 works by Malaysian artists. Themes range from the land and cityscapes, peoples and faiths to the quest for identity.
  • Building Merdeka showcases independence architecture in Kuala Lumpur such as Stadium Negara, Parliament House, National Monument, Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka, National Muzium, Masjid Negara and Subang Airport.
  • Petronas on Film is a film screening of the last 15 years of Petronas National Day and national festival television commercials that potray our multiracial essence.
