Japanese and Asian contemporary art is one of the main focuses of the Mori Art Museum's programs, yet “Asia” covers a broad territory, making it difficult to grasp an overall picture of it.

About

In “MAM Research 003,” we introduce the Indonesia New Art Movement (Gerakan Seni Rupa Baru/GSRBI) in the 1970s, often said to have marked the birth of contemporary art in Indonesia. The Movement was centered on a group of mainly young artists including FX Harsono and Jim Supangkat who freed themselves from the existing framework of Indonesian modern art, based predominantly on “western” context - with the dominance of expressionism, realism, abstract and surrealism. In 1975, they organized an exhibition titled “Indonesia New Art.” Exhibitions with the same title followed through the late 1980s, with the last one also held in Perth, Australia in 1989.
This exhibition focuses in particular on the 1987 “Indonesia New Art (Project 1: Fantasy World Supermarket)” exhibition which was themed with consumerism, capitalism, popular culture, et al., and was also looking to explore what it meant to artistically collaborate and work together on production as connecting point to the current practice. Through a variety of archival materials and interviews, we attempt to reexamine the past, and the current practice of Indonesian art.
