ARTBOX Malaysia’s highly anticipated return after a four-year hiatus was nothing short of a spectacular success, leaving attendees with memories of a truly enchanting experience. Featuring five pillars — art, experiential, food, music and retail — the event was held under the captivating theme of Arcadia at Sunway Pyramid’s outdoor car park in Petaling Jaya.

Artbox Arcadia’s art scene was a diverse and vibrant celebration, showcasing various forms of art, from urban street art to modern and contemporary masterpieces. The installation “Pieces of Artbox - Hereafter” took visitors on a journey through different visual mediums, offering an otherworldly experience with interactive elements and illusions.

Through cultural stations and innovative workshops, the boundaries of imagination were pushed, creating a unique connection across generations. The gastronomic delights at Artbox, themed “The Forbidden Bite”, lived up to expectations. A creative showcase of gourmet creations from food and beverage entrepreneurs across Southeast Asia, including vendors from Thailand, delighted the taste buds of attendees.

Artbox’s commitment to supporting entrepreneurs shone through in the “Shopping Paradise” retail section.

A curated collection of crafts and creative products from local and global brands offered a unique shopping experience for visitors. Key partnerships with Sunway Pyramid, Fujifilm (Instax), Dissy.co and TikTok elevated the event to new heights. Attendees had the chance to visit the Instax Mart for a personalised experience and explore the Dissy.co booth for custom-designed T-shirts.

Vuse’s Portals to Inspiration allowed visitors to explore hidden creativity and GWM’s mystery gift wall activity added an element of excitement, encouraging attendees to engage on social media for a chance to redeem special gifts. The highlight of Artbox Arcadia was the stunning Arcadia Tunnel, inspired by the local storybook “Kalista”.
