ILHAM

Top choice gallery in Bukit Bintang, KLCC & Pudu

This thought-provoking contemporary-art gallery is an excellent excuse to step inside the glossy, 60-storey ILHAM Tower. The artwork selected for ILHAM's rotating exhibitions spans various media and is curated to provoke debate: expect anything from black-and-white documentary photography to neon-coloured paintings of kampung houses.

Talks, performances, film screenings and children's workshops are also held here, often tying in with the theme of the current exhibition; check the website for details. There's also an great gift shop with a cafe.

Outside the tower the giant copper-clad sculptures are the first permanent public work by Chinese artist Ai Weiwei to be installed in Southeast Asia.
