Exhibition Profile

Meanders in the Tropics aims to display works that represent the development of Indonesian modern and contemporary art. Underlining the diversity of aesthetic languages, this exhibition is composed of drawings, paintings, sculptures and video works that span nearly a hundred years, from 1930s up to today. The narrative thread is structured in twofold. Not only does it outline a history of artistic styles and themes developing in different periods, the exhibition also attempts to sketch out the art world’s formation by underlining the affiliations among artists, groups and schools. This curatorial outlook eventually shapes the exhibition in both chronology and topography of the field, placing the artists and their works in their unique positions in the twists and turns—the meanders—of the Indonesian art history. As a non-repetitive imprint of a time, artwork serves as a reminder of the circumstances that have passed, of those which is occurring today and those that will be approached by a society in the future.
