Looking at the past, making for the future: Indonesian Painting III
Group exhibition curated by Tony Godfrey
13 September - 20 October 2013, Main Gallery
In this third exhibition in a series examining Indonesian painting today we include new paintings by three important but very different artists from Bandung and Jogja: Jumaldi Alfi, Ivan Sagita & Sunaryo.
How do Indonesian artists view and use their own artistic traditions? Indeed, what exactly are these traditions? Also, we may ask, how important is their particular ethnic origin? Is it still useful to think of Indonesian painting in terms of a contrast or conflict between art made in Jogja or Bandung?
Although these are artists distinguished above all by strong personal visions this exhibition offers a chance to think about such issues.
