Indonesian National Gallery Collection on Display in Bulgary

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Modern artworks by Indonesian artists are on display at the National Art Gallery, Sofia, Bulgaria from October 5 to 12 November. The exhibited work is the arts collection of the Indonesian National Gallery.

The exhibition, part of the Wonders of Indonesia campaign, is organized by Curator Citra Smara Dewi. The exhibition showcases the works of influential artists such as Popo Iskandar, Affandi, Nyoman Arsana, Fadjar Sidik, Batara Lubis, A.D. Pirous, I Ketut Tagen, Sentot, Hatta Hambali and Mulyadi.

This exhibition maps the history of Indonesia's art development through paintings created by artists from the post-independence era of the 1950s and 1980s, according to the press release of the National Gallery.

The dynamics of Indonesian art at that time is colored by various genres such as realism, expressionism, impressionism, decorative, and abstract.

"The exhibition is expected to serve as a medium of education and appreciation to promote the works of modern Indonesian art and a means to introduce the existence of Indonesian artists to the international community," the Indonesian National Gallery director Tubagus 'Andre' Sukmana said in a press release.
