Asialink Arts, Bus Projects (Melbourne) and Ruang MES 56 (Indonesia) presents Put Up a Signal, a multifaceted artist exchange featuring Indonesian and Australian screen based art.

Exploiting the fact that video and sound files can now be shared across the world at low cost, the project explores opportunities for richer collaboration and exchange made possible through the Internet and digital platforms. Showcasing the developments taking place in both communities, the project uses an evolving, decentralized model of collaboration between artists and organizations.

Participating artists from Australia and Indonesia include:

Irwan Ahmett (ID), Muhammad Akbar (ID), Akiq AW (ID), Tristan Jalleh (AU), Greatest Hits (AU), Eugenia Lim (AU), Oliver van der Lugt (AU), Rowan McNaught (AU), Sean Peoples (AU), Anggun Priambodo (ID), Emile Zile (AU), M.R. Adytama Pranada a.k.a Charda (ID)
