Sculpture Square presents reformasi - contemporary Indonesian artists post-1998


Source: Sculpture Square

Sculpture Square is presenting its 5th Anniversary exhibition entitled "reformasi" from 9 June 2004 to 29 August 2004. Reformasi is co-curated by Sculpture Square's Tay Swee Lin and guest curator Singapore based Iola Lenzi.

The exhibition, featuring 14 Indonesian Artists in the post-1998 era, will be the largest and most comprehensive exhibition of Indonesian contemporary art shown in Singapore.

Southeast Asia's largest and most populous country, has experienced radical change at every level of society since the fall of President Suharto in the spring of 1998. Economic instability, ethic dislocation, geographic disintegration, communalism and political uncertainty all threaten the nation in ways that were unpredictable less than a decade ago.

Yet as contemporary Indonesians grapple with each new crisis, the challenges they face are reflected in increasing openness in the press. And as society becomes freer, contemporary artists are reacting to a less controlled but ever more complex environment, in sophisticated and creative ways.

With reformasi, the largest and most comprehensive survey of Indonesian contemporary art shown in Singapore, this Sculpture Square initiated and organised exhibition seeks to give contemporary Indonesian practitioners a voice.

Their work is sometimes radically innovative in concept or form, and their art, in the expression of their concerns and reactions to life as it unfolds in this unsettling world of challenge and promise, cannot fail to engage universal audience.

Admission is free and all are welcome. Exhibition opening hours: 11am to 6pm (Mon - Sun, excluding Public Holiday)

Venue: The Chapel Gallery, Sculpture Square, 155 Middle Road Singapore 188977.
