FCACheartsJogja: The Second Edition 2014
Presented by Footscray Community Arts Centre and the Australian Embassy Jakarta’s Arts and Cultural Program 2014.
Following on from FCACheartsJogja, three intensive weeks of arts and cultural exchange in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, FCAC will host our collaborating artist friends in a program of exhibitions, workshops, artist talks and masterclasses.
Our dream, their dream, one hundred years.
Freedom. Heaven. Democracy. Winning the Lottery. A big house. Career. Celebrity. Sex. Smartphone. We are defined by what we dream.
Tanah Impian (Dream/Land) explores the aspirations of Indonesia over 100 years, as reflected through popular culture. The exhibition highlights an often-stark difference between ‘Dream’ and ‘Reality’, and, on reflection of a recent Indonesian election, challenges both Indonesians and Australians to think critically about the individual values we choose to define us as communities and neighboring nations. Featuring artwork by printmaking studio, Krack!
