Mizuma Gallery is pleased to announce How are we doing?, a group exhibition curated by Hermanto Soerjanto, featuring Albert Yonathan Setyawan, Entang Wiharso, Heri Dono, indieguerillas, Iswanto Soerjanto, and Iwan Effendi.
Artworks are the manifestation of artists’ perspective and sensibility towards life and things around it. When an artist goes through significant changes in their life, their artworks will naturally change alongside. Some artists have taken on this pandemic as a new source of inspiration for the narrative of their artworks, in the sense that it triggers a new perspective on how they look at the relationship between themselves and the life around them. Surely, this pandemic has also brought a huge impact on the economic situation of many artists. This has led to various interesting responses, whether in the form of collaboration, social media presence, online sale of merchandise, et cetera. Consciously or unconsciously, this transformation has expedited the democratization of art, giving easier access to more people to get close to, experience, and collect art.
Through the works of six artists in this exhibition, we observe the relation between the changes in life brought about by the pandemic and the artists’ creative practice and their artworks. After all, the situation that we are undergoing right now could be a big momentum for how art will develop in the future.
