The Faculty of Creative Multimedia and Faculty of Cinematic Arts, Multimedia University, Cyberjaya, Malaysia has organized a symposium on catalysts of creative practitioners called ROMBAK that takes place from 16th to 16th December 2021.

In conjunction with the symposium, we also plan to have an online exhibition. We take this opportunity to extend our invite to your good self, and the institution that you are associated with to submit artwork for the exhibition.

For details on submission format and to submit artworks, please refer the link below:

Rombak – which means “to reshuffle” in Malay, but also doubles as portmanteau for “resisting ombak” in our case – is about creative resilience. Through a virtual showcase of presenting digital artwork, Rombak celebrates the persistence of artistic creativity in reconfiguring and disrupting what is to come. In the weeks to come, we would like to invite artists and filmmakers whose works demonstrate stubborn tenacity of creative minds in pressing against the waves.

As we sail through trying times, Rombak seeks work that responds to the cycle of everydayness – banalities. We challenge artists and filmmakers to see banalities as a catalyst, examine and create digital artworks and moving images that breaks any sorts of norm.

We look forward to seeing your submission. Break the wave!
