Mooi Indie – Beautiful Indies

Indonesian Art Now

Friday 01 August – Friday 03 October 2014

Mooi Indie - Beautiful Indies celebrates the culturally aware and socially engaged art that is the product of an energetic art scene that thrives in the cities of Australia’s nearest neighbour.

Indonesia’s contemporary art has been closely linked to the recent history of its nation, influenced by (and sometimes in opposition to) the social, political and cultural factors that have affected the communities these artists are a part of. Works of art emerge from this dynamic milieu that defy solitary interpretations; works, for example, that address human rights, the environment, gender, identity and culture, across all genres of making.

Developed in collaboration with European-based curator Matthias Arndt, Mooi Indie - Beautiful Indies features work by Jumaldi Alfi, Arin Dwihartanto Sunaryo, Eko Nugroho, Wedhar Riyadi, Tromorama, and Entang Wiharso.
