Indo Pop: Indonesian Art from APT7 presents a group of artists who were a central feature of the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art's flagship 2012 exhibition, 'The Seventh Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art'. These works join the state's pioneering collection of contemporary Indonesian art, and builds on the strong relationship they maintain with one of Australia's closest neighbours.
In the late twentieth century, Indonesia lived through significant social and political changes that saw the country emerge from the militaristic government of the Suharto era (1967–98), to become the largest economy in South-East Asia. Since the 1970s, groups of contemporary artists in Indonesia have banded together to challenge social, political and economic structures as well as the arts establishment, creating a powerful voice of protest and criticism in their works. BVRG is proud to be the only venue outside of Queensland to present Indo Pop.
