The BIENNALE JOGJA (BJ) formally announces the Biennale XIII theme and
main programs. “Hacking Conflicts – Indonesia meets Nigeria” is the
3rd edition of the BJ Equator series, following the first edition in
2011 (India) and 2013 (five Middle East countries).
Managed in a new vision and direction by Yogyakarta Biennale Foundation, the Equator
series present a strategy that utilises the line the Equator draws
around the globe as a concrete practice in exploring and re-reading
the world, visioned and projected until the year 2022.
As a biennial event, the BJ XIII will maximise the efforts to make
this year Biennale as an event in collaboration with the city’s
residents. Thus, apart from using Jogja National Museum as an
exhibition space, the BJXIII will also use Yogyakarta’s city spaces
and surroundings as a site or a creative arena for artists to
intervene on local issues. To this end, the main events will include
an Art Exhibition, Community Art Projects and the Equator Festival.
BJXIII will look at the connection between Yogyakarta/Jogja
(Indonesia) and Nigeria as partner nations who will interpret the same
issues, as they share a history of colonisation and recent release
from military regime.
Will be exhibiting the works of :
Agus Suwage, Agan Harahap, Akiq AW, Agung Kurniawan, Leonardiansyah Allenda, Maryanto, Mella Jaarsma,
Melati Suryodarmo, Otty Widyasari, Restu Ratnaningtyas, Pius Sigit Kuncoro,
Setu Legi, Syagini Ratna Wulan, Theresia Agustina, Tisna Sanjaya, Tromarama,
Uji Handoko, Wedhar Riyadi and Wimo Ambala Bayang.
The curatorial team for the Biennale Jogja XIII is formed by
Rian Rosidi (Artistic Director), an independent curator and lecturer at the
Art Institute of Yogyakarta (ISI), Woto Wibowo (Curator) currently the
Director of MES56 Art Space that focuses on the development of
contemporary photography, and Jude Anogwih (Nigerian curator), the
current curator at the Centre for Contemporary Art Lagos in Nigeria.
