Surviror: Dadang Christanto
Saturday 6 April 2013
2:00PM - 4:00PM
Join us for the opening performance of 'Survivor: Dadand Christanto' to be launched by Aaron Seeeto, Curator 'Survivor', Director of 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art.
Survivor is a major performance by Brisbane-based Dadang Christanto, a significant contemporary Indonesian-Australian artist. Survivor continues a line of enquiry that Christanto developed in response to his father’s disappearance under the Suharto regime in the mid-1960’s. The work contemplates loss and history, politics and shared humanity.
Presented by Kultour in partnership with 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art and toured by Museums & Galleries NSW. This exhibition is supported by the Contemporary Touring Initiative through Visions of Australia, an Australian Government program, and the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy, an initiative of the Australian Government and state and territory governments.
