(about) Maps, Reimagined Exhibition

This Saturday! 26th of May at Dia.Lo.Gue art space Kemang "Every exit is an entrance somewhere else" - Tom Stoppard

EXI(S)T is an annual exhibition project that acts not only as an 'empty space' where artworks are exhibited, but as a vessel in which creative potentials converge and artistic possibilities incubate.

The theme for this year's exhibition is 'Maps, Reimagined' involving 12 emerging artist from Jakarta. The artists began by exploring the idea of negotiating their various positions within the tense but inter-related worlds of art and industry, private and public. This led them to specifically respond to issues about ethnic background, urban density, the politics of creative industry and many more. A common belief shared by those involved how the 'process' involved in this exhibition is just as important as the final works displayed here.

Opening address by: FX Harsono at 5 pm Curated by: Mitha Budhyarto I will exhibit my newest work: Unfamiliar Roots - Walking Banana where I talk about cultural identity. (will write more about it later!)

This exhibition is a part of "sMart dia.lo.gue Pasar Seni dan Pameran" event, there will be live music, live painting, live band, and so much more! Let's have some fun and get inspired this Saturday! Go take a closer look at the poster for more info about the timeline, etc.

See you soon! x
