In this talk, Dr Agung Hujatnika will reflect on a variety of local, national and global platforms that have facilitated and shaped the emergence of Indonesian contemporary visual art. Apart from discussing the role of artists’ initiatives and collectors, he will specifically focus on the ‘curatorial turn’ in Indonesia. He will also address part of the history of Indonesian art spaces and exhibitions, and highlight the works and practices of a few emerging artists. The discussion will include Dr Hujatnika’s personal experiences as a prolific curator at home and abroad.
Dr Hujatnika is visiting the University of Melbourne as part of the the Faculty of Arts Indonesia Initiative, a visiting scholar program which aims to further enhance teaching and research relationships with colleagues in Indonesia.
