+ROAD Project | 1-30 June 2010
New Zero & Yogyakarta artists
+ROAD is a collaborative project between New Zero Art Space, Yangon, Myanmar and Cemeti Art House, Yogyakarta, Indonesia.
+ROAD (read: crossroad) is the title of a cross-cultural art project involving five young artists from Yogyakarta and five artists from Yangon. They were involved in an intensive program designed to present their own works in a context of their own cultural understanding, scrutinizing behind the political, economic and social backgrounds of their art.
All of the exploratory activities of the art project “+ROAD” took place between June 1 – 13, 2010. A presentation and exhibition of the +ROAD activities will take place on June 13 – 30, 2010, at Cemeti Art House. The exhibition and presentation will be open for public.
The artists participating from Yogyakarta are: Doger Panorsa, Ikhsan Syahirul Alim (Ican), Restu Ratnaningtyas, Ristyanto Cahyo Wibowo and Wibowo Adi Utama. The five artists from Myanmar are: Aye Ko (Tin Swe), May Moe Thu, Htoo Aung Kyaw, Nwe (Thin Lei Nwe), and Zoncy (Zon Sapal Phyu).
After the project is finished, a post-event catalog will be published. The catalog will summarize and annotate the experiences, lessons and commentaries of the collaborative project involving two cultures through contemporary art.
This project is supported by Asian Art Council, New York and Arthub Asia
