Flyer of Heri Dono exhibition

Kicking off a series of three solo exhibitions of Asian contemporary artists, this exhibition featured the Indonesian artist Heri Dono, known for his humorous installations and artworks that incorporate elements of traditional Javanese arts such as wayang shadow puppet theater and reflect his acutely critical viewpoint on Indonesia’s social situation. Curated by the important Thai art historian/curator Apinan Poshyananda, the exhibition was held at the Japan Foundation Forum.
