Mata Garis, a Solo Exhibition by @edibonetski at the Superlative Gallery

Titicara: Meruah is the latest iteration of Titicara, a women artists exhibition that will be held from 17 May to 28 July 2024 at Selasar Sunaryo Art Space (SSAS). Curated by Yosefa Aulia, the exhibition features nine women artists from across generations: Dian Suci Rahmawati, Fiametta Gabriela, Hildawati Soemantri, Ipeh Nur, Kei Imazu, Liza Markus, Melati Suryodarmo, Nadya Jiwa Saraswati, and Ratu R. Saraswati.

Contemporary Indonesian is chosen to respond to the latest developments in cultural discourse linked to issues surrounding the 'post' that articulates concerns of the 'aftermath' era previously known

“Tiga Pasang Tangan/ Three Pairs of Hands,” inspired by the activity of processing sago palm trunk into sago starch by indigenous people in the remote areas of Papua. The activity of processing raw food materials is perceived to represent the idea that Mella wants to emphasize through this exhibition, namely food politics.

ArtSociates & Galeri Zen1 proudly present, The Unusual Epic: Paintings of I Ketut Teja Astawa

This exhibition showcases the work of twelve artists from Bandung, Jakarta, and Yogyakarta, who participated in a residency in Tubaba, Lampung. They used natural rubber (liquid latex and rubber sheets) and explored combining it with other materials. The artworks demonstrate rubber's potential in form, content, and context, touching on themes of rematerialization and the role of medium in contemporary art. The exhibition critically reflects on the historical, social, political, and economic implications of rubber as an Indonesian commodity.
