Free entry

NGV International

Ground Level

18 Oct 12 – 1 Apr 13

Jompet Kuswidananto and Eko Nugroho are members of the art community that centres on the vibrant central Java city of Yogyakarta in Indonesia. Jompet is an installation artist, while Nugroho works across diverse media; creating paintings, murals and handmade comic books, contemporary updates of the tradition of shadow puppet theatre, and collaborations with local craftspeople to produce embroideries. As a pairing, they shine light on the effervescent contemporary Indonesian art scene and present a wide-ranging, yet precise snapshot of this world.

This exhibition is generously supported by the Joan and Peter Clemenger Trust.

Supported by the Commonwealth through the Australia-Indonesia Institute of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
