An exhibition of some of the most exciting Indonesian artworks has opened at the Singapore Management University (SMU).
It is dubbed the Indonesian Triple Bill and features three separate displays. This includes a significant loan of artworks worth some S$1 million.
The Indonesian Triple Bill aims to give an insight into the country's art movement. It mainly features influences from Yogyakarta, regarded as the country's epicentre of modern and contemporary art.
Most of the paintings are loaned from prominent Indonesian art collector Dr Oei Hong Djien, who is known internationally as an astute and passionate collector of Indonesian art.
His pieces will make up the show "Out of Magelang". Magelang is in Central Java - where Dr Oei was born. The pieces are worth some S$1 million.
The Indonesian Triple Bill will run till October 5, and is a parallel event of the Singapore Biennale 2008.
