In this exhibition, Nindito Adipurnomo aims to return to the subjective old way of appreciating arts. The process involved 10 friends of Dia.lo.gue with various professional backgrounds. Nindito loaned his artworks to these people for 2 to 3 months and took their feedback, criticism, comments given towards the artwork. Nindito even gathered selfie of people with his artworks. These comments and photos are in return used as sources of inspiration of the new works that are exhibited in this exhibition along with the original artworks. To see the this relationship between the audience’s appreciation of artworks and the artworks, visit Dia.lo.gue artspace! For more information, visit http://www.dialogue-artspace.com.
