Mizuma Gallery presents "VERSUS – Indonesian Contemporary Art", a group exhibition featuring artworks by I Made Djirna, Heri Dono, Indieguerillas, Yoga Mahendra, Nasirun, Agus Novianto, and Made Wianta from 18 October through 22 December, 2013. The exhibition opening is timed to coincide with the opening of the Centre for Contemporary Art at Gillman Barracks on 23 October, as well as the Singapore Biennale 2013 - If the World Changed that features an installation by Nasirun.
VERSUS traces the aspects of “diversity” in contemporary art, presenting Indonesia as an ideal territory for the approach. The exhibition seize the opportunity to contextualize Indonesia not only as a mere location, but as the fated motherland of a tremendous variety of contemporary voices. VERSUS explores intricate and unique combinations of values and sensibilities. Layers of realities in timeless juxtapositions of patterns uncover the underlying context. The show aims at the horizon beyond the question of tradition versus modernity in contemporary art.share Email
