Contemporary Indonesian Art
Curator/s: Dominique Lora. Con il supporto della Ciputra Foundation and Gallery, Giakarta
16 November, 2011 - 15 January, 2012

On display the works by 15 great Indoneasian asrtists: Agus Suwage, F.X. Harsono, Yuli Praytno, Melati Suryodarmo, Mella Jaarsma, Heri Dono, Made Wianta, Eko Nugroho, Entang Wiharso, Ugo Untoro, Titarubi, Astari Rasyid, Arya Pandjalu, S. Teddy Darmawan and Budi Kustarto.

The exhibition features a selection of Indonesian artists that focus on exploring the mechanisms of collective consumerism, dissecting the relations and the values that bound modern society to the fetish idolatry of the brand, therefore enacting both cultural and human short-circuit.It aims to create a place where one can experience the "Other" and "Elsewhere", a place where, through visual arts, visitors can understand the logic and dynamics that are shaping the face of Asia today.
