Issue 43:1 | Parnati–Kudlila / Autumn–Winter (Apr–Aug 2023)

Contemporary art practice, curatorial trends and art writing take centre stage in this issue with material from the Indonesian centres of Jakarta and Yogyakarta, alongside artists and writers in Bali, Banda Aceh, Makassar, Sulawesi and Australia. Our editorial advisors and leading specialists on Indonesian art, Wulan Dirgantoro, Elly Kent and Aaron Seeto have worked with writers at all stages of their practice who investigate topics from socially engaged collectives to art in the diaspora, feminist art histories, cultural festivals, national collecting policies and the evolving cross-cultural relationship between our two neighbouring nations.
