About the Exhibition
“The Neglected Dimension” explores the period from the 1960s onward when calligraphy and abstraction became prominent modes of artistic production in Islamic art in Indonesia. This exhibition introduces four artists associated with the modernist artistic training in Bandung, Indonesia, a key site where experimentations with Arabic calligraphy and different forms of abstraction took place. The artists are Ahmad Sadali (1924 – 1987), A.D. Pirous (b. 1932), Haryadi Suadi (1938 – 2016), and Arahmaiani (b. 1961).
