If you’re in Bali, swing by the exhibition “Efek Samping” part of the Futuwonder Project: Masa Subur. The Masa Subur project is an interdisciplinary project that involves women artists in Indonesia. In this particular one, the artists selected are creating work under the theme “Efek Samping” or side effect, which refers to the emotional nature that is associated to women and is often seen as an imposed limitation that prevents the women artist’s works to expand beyond their current state. “Efek Samping” exhibition invited 4 female artists and selected 21 other female artists to showcase their works. “Efek Samping” is exhibited at Karja Art Space in Ubud, Bali. The exhibition has been extended until the 19th of November. For more information, click here.
