Mizuma Gallery is pleased to announce The Social Realism of Agan Harahap, a solo exhibition by one of the generation’s most prominent contemporary artist, Agan Harahap. The exhibition will present a series of appropriation of paintings by Indonesian art maestros, mainly from the 1940s to 1960s, that embody the zeitgeist from a time known as the heyday of Social Realism manifesto in Indonesia. Agan now ‘borrows’ these paintings to present his own version of Social Realism in the current zeitgeist: a period where religion, politics, class struggles, and consumer culture are all contesting in a culture where fake news, hoax, and media wars have become part of society’s everyday consumption.
