Art and artists in society: pathways for Indonesian art in the 21st century

Wednesday, 30 June 2021

Art and artists have long held an important position in Indonesian society—in politics, in movements for social and environmental justice, community development, education, commercial design and contemporary life. After two decades of enormous social change on global and local scales, what role will art and artists play in Indonesia’s future?

On 11 March, The Australian National University (ANU) Indonesia Institute presented a webinar addressing this question across diverse fields including curatorship, art history, ‘artivism’, experimental and research-based art, regional development and education.

The panel featured Anissa Rahadiningtyas (PhD Candidate, Cornell University), Arham Rahman (Director, Makassar Biennale), I Made Bayak (artist), Alia Swastika (Director, Yogyakarta Biennale Foundation) and Karina Roosvita (Artist and researcher).

A recording of the webinar can be viewed here.
