Indonesian company Ciputra Artpreuner will host two exhibitions in Jakarta as part of their art programme, 100 Years Hendra Gunawan - A Centenary Celebration. The programme commemorates Hendra’s 100th birth anniversary.
Entitled, Hendra Gunawan: Prisoner of Hope and Spektrum Hendra Gunawan, the exhibitions will open on Aug 5 at the Ciputra Museum and the Ciputra Gallery, respectively.
Spektrum is said to highlight Hendra Gunawan’s importance and relevance to Indonesian contemporary art practices today. Curated by Rifky Effendy, the exhibition is said to be a contemporary response to Hendra Gunawan and his art.
Featuring works by 70 Indonesian contemporary artists, Spektrum Hendra Gunawan is, “seen as a form of tribute, honouring the art of Hendra Gunawan by way of reading, contemplating and re-experiencing the many aspects found in his artistic praxis.”
