RALLY: Contemporary Indonesian Art – Jompet Kuswidananto & Eko Nugrohopresents offers two perspectives on modern Indonesia through colourful murals, paintings and embroideries spill across the floor and walls of the NGV. Nugroho’s works are grounded in both traditional and modern Indonesia; fusing street art and popular culture with traditional embroidery styles and Javanese shadow puppetry. His humorous yet unsettling social satires express strong comments on Indonesia’s politically-charged climate in a dynamic and lively manner, often featuring characters that draw on comic book graphics and graffiti from the streets of his hometown of Yogyakarta, Indonesia.
