Concept Context Contestation: art and the collective in Southeast Asia (Jogjakarta, INDONESIA) Traveling Project

20 August 2016, at 7.00 pm.
Cemeti Art House, and Ruang MES 56, Jogjakarta, INDONESIA

The Exhibition Department, Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (BACC), in collaboration with Cemeti Art House, Kedai Kebun Forum,
and Ruang MES 56 present a traveling project, Concept Context Con-testation: art and the collective in Southeast Asia,
Jogja version
, a continuation of the original CCC that premiered at BACC Bangkok in December 2013.CCCJogja aims to further
explore Southeast Asian art’s development of expressive languages that with form, function, and concept, articulate views of
society and political narrations that activate critical viewer response. In 2016, artists, curators and host institutions in Jogja are
cooperating to expand and re-focus original CCC and so graft additional meanings onto Concept Context Contestation Jogja
version. Post-Bangkok CCC, the exhibition’s ethos of openness and dialogue continues through newly-added artworks including
photography, installation, video and other media, and also through collaborative programs and projects, many of which have
been commissioned specially for CCC Jogja.

Among the various projects initiated for CCC Jogja, several will be performative or involve the public as participants. Participatory
projects include Jogka collective MES 56's Magical Mystical Tours (de-tails to be announced after 18 August); Tintin Wulia’s
passport-making project, launched in a selected public space, to be announced; Vasan Sitthiket will inaugurate a new puppet performance (Saturday 20 August, 7pm); Sutee Kunavichayanont’s History Class desk installation will function through viewer
interaction; Amanda Heng will present Let’s Chat, the public invited to join the artist for tea and vegetable preparation
(durational, Saturday 20 August, Cemeti Art House, 6-8pm); Ise Roslisham will prepare food for audiences; Mella Jaarsma
will parade her costume piece on the opening night, and collective Vertical Submarine will install a "money-changing booth"
for Jogja viewers. (Project venues Cemeti Art House or Ruang MES 56, or other, to be announced).

In addition, selected artists will give public tours of their work in the Cemeti Art House and Ruang MES 56 spaces on Sunday
