A chronological account that begins with four key artists of the 19th and 20th centuries - including Jan Toorop and Raden Saleh - who have marked the history of art in Indonesia. Contemporary artists, including Agung Kurniawan, Antariksa, Mella Jaarsma, Wendelien van Oldenborgh, Roy Villevoye and Ana Torfs, complete this story with new creations. They reflect decisive exchanges for Indonesia sparked by trade, culture, religion, ideology and war.
This exhibition presents a unique representation of the recent history of Indonesia, from the last convulsions of the Dutch colony and the Japanese occupation to the present day. Curators: Riksa Afiaty, Enin Supriyanto & Charles Esche.
