Indonesian artist Dadang Christanto’s first solo exhibition in Kuala Lumpur is titled Missing.

Throughout his career, Dadang Christanto has produced a body of works that honours the countless victims of political violence and crimes against humanity.

The title possibly alludes to the lack of documentation on the Indonesian anti-communist purge between 1965-66.

The exhibition comprises 110 acrylic and charcoal imagined portraits of victims tied to the massacre.

The exhibition will also feature installations and sculptures.
