The hottest medium in art today–Photography–will take centre stage at Element Art Space this April with Saturations. Showcasing works from 9 of the most well-known contemporary Indonesian artists, this exhibition will be the first in Singapore to focus on Indonesian photography.

Indonesian contemporary art has never been the same since the 2000s with emerging creative culture/subcultures, alternative spaces, and ‘indie’ movements kickstarted by the generation born in the 1970s and 1980s. The change of politics also gave way to many varieties of creative expressions, and that included the development of photography in the visual arts.

Adding to the stellar roster of artists, the exhibition is curated by Farah Wardani, an independent curator from Indonesia, who has curated artists such as Heri Dono, Christine Ay Tjoe, and most recently curated the exhibition “Indonesian Eye–Fantasies and Realities” at Saatchi Gallery in London.

Artists: Agan Harahap, Angki Purbandono, Davy linggar, Edwin Roseno, Julia Sarisetiati, Keke Tumbuan, Paul Kadarisman, Tandun, Wok The Rock
