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.
