Collective exhibition
«Bhinneka Tunggal Ika» by 12 Indonesian women artists

A collective exhibition of 12 Indonesian artists was organized in partnership with the Kompas Gramedia group, curated by specialist Farah Wardani.

A celebration to the Indonesian creative strength

Tackling topical issues such as cultural values, the notion of individuality and society, and ecology, this exhibition perfectly illustrates the idea of “Bhinneka Tunggal Ika“, Indonesia’s national motto meaning “Unity in Diversity“.

Through their works, these young women hope to bring new perspectives to bear on the issues facing their generation.

« This exhibition serves to reframe the meaning and (re)interpretation of Bhinneka Tunggal Ika, Unity in Diversity from the perspectives of new Indonesian generation, as represented by the works of young Indonesian contemporary women artists. The focus is more on the way the spirit of Bhinneka is reflected and manifested in their artistic practice, in various interdisciplinary, contemporary approaches. » (Farah Wardani, curator of the exhibition)

12 women artists
embodying national diversity

Through an artistic language that blends tradition and innovation, these young women celebrate the territory’s history and the power of female expression in today’s society.

Bringing together installation, ceramics and embroidery, this exhibition is a perfect visual illustration of “Unity in Diversity“, a reflection of Indonesia’s teeming art scene.

“The selection of these 12 artists is based on their artistic merit, their achievements and their respective subjects, in total adequacy with the national motto “Bhinneka Tunggal Ika” which itself materializes through the diversity of contemporary artistic practices.” (Farah Wardani, exhibition curator)
