Exhibition #9: New art from Bali and Bandung

When people think of contemporary Indonesian art, the location that comes to mind is Yogyakarta. Home to the art school Institut Seni Indonesia (ISI), Jogja is famous as ‘a city of artists’. But Indonesia has other equally fascinating art scenes. Bandung for example, a large city east of Jakarta, is home to the other major art school ITB and many of its graduates. ITB started in the mid 1950s with an interest in new and conceptual idea, as opposed to ISI, which had a focus on Indonesian art and culture. For decades the two schools competed, and their different philosophies could be seen in their graduates’ work. From Bandung, this exhibition features sculptor/painter Maharani Mancanagara, photographer Meicy Sitorus and video artist Eldwin Pradipta.
