Conversation: Endless Acts in Human History, Entang Wiharso and Sally Smart
Galeri Nasional Indonesia in cooperation with Galeri Canna presents Conversation: Endless Acts in Human History a two person exhibition by Indonesia artist Entang Wiharso (b. 1967) and Australian artist Sally Smart (b. 1960) . The exhibition opens on 14 January and continues through 1 February 2016.
Conversation: Endless Acts in Human History is a unique collaboration between the two artists, who met in Melbourne in 2012 and have become close friends since that time. Engaged in a continuous discourse about their individual practices, this marks the first time Wiharso and Smart have worked together to realize a full-scale joint exhibition. Focusing on Wiharso and Smart’s work individually and in dialogue with each, Conversation recognizes the extraordinary synergies and cross cultural dialogues in their artistic practices. Displayed throughout the main space of the National Gallery, Conversation will feature newly conceived sculptures, paintings and installations, as well as works made at critical junctures in Wiharso and Smart’s careers.
