ICAD 12, with the theme “Fragmenting Yesterday, Reshaping Tomorrow”, aims to understand people’s development process while scanning through the relations between the past and the future. It’s a topic that cannot be separated from the pandemic as our collective memory that has influenced many things.
Lead Curator Amanda Ariawan and Guest Curator Prananda L. Malasan said that there are critical and imaginative thoughts amongst social issues that are presented through the artworks. From the comedic to political ideas, from the analytical to the speculative ideas, they are understandable. And these ideas contribute to our knowledge and discussions about current issues on the environment, history, technology and civilisation.
59 multidisciplinary artists, which include contemporary artists, collective and communities display their works at ICAD 12. These works are divided into 5 categories: Special Appearance, In Focus, Open Submission, Featured and Collaboration. Most of the artists are Indonesian, but the Open Submission features 3 international artists from France, UK and Russia.
Here are some of the works, displayed in random order.
