Foam welcomes photography collective Ruang Mes 56 from Indonesia for a collaborative presentation of young Indonesian talent at Foam 3h.
Foam X Ruang Mes 56 presents the work of two young Indonesian artists, Yudha Kusuma Putera (Ngadirejo, 1987) and Andri William (Jakarta, 1986). The starting point for the exhibition is the Indonesian tradition of gotong royong, which can be understood on many different levels, including ways of working together, and ways of resolving matters collectively through reciprocal help, with the active participation of members of the community. Involving the participation of other people is essential in the work of both artists.
COLLABORATE! A YEAR OF VISUAL ENCOUNTERS
Foam X Ruang MES 56 is the last of three collaborations taking place in Foam 3h during 2017, involving photography platforms Hydra in Mexico City (Mexico), the Africa Artists’ Foundation in Lagos (Nigeria) and Ruang Mes 56 in Yogyakarta (Indonesia) that each operate in a specific local art scene. This initiative offers Foam the opportunity to present young talent from different cultural contexts and to research new developments in local photography discourses worldwide.
You are invited to join the public opening of Foam X Ruang Mes 56 on Thursday 14 September, from 5.30pm onwards in the presence of the artists and Wimo Ambala Bayang, co-founder and curator of Ruang Mes 56. On the same evening André Kertész – Mirroring Life | 15 September – 10 January will open.
On Friday evening 15 September, Foam organises talk on Global Collaborations in Photography with Ruang Mes 56 and other experts from the field of photography. Sign up here: bit.ly/2vKGd0g
