MiFA presents Australia’s first commercial showcase of contemporary Indonesian art. Bringing together some of Indonesia’s most compelling established and emerging contemporary artists, the exhibition aims to “close the gap” on the cultural divide between Australia and it’s closest neighbour. I was amazed. It just goes to show what an incredible creators they all are, various materials used to create art. Eko Nughroho is always my favourite indonesian artist ever. In this year, He will exhibit his amazing work in Italy, Germany and France. WOOOW. The artists are generously supported by Garuda Airlines. Do not miss this exhibition.
