Weekend Takeover By Cemeti-Institute For Art And Society
July 11, 2020 11:00 am - July 12, 2020 11:00 pm
Cemeti - Institute for Arts and Society (formerly 'Cemeti Gallery', then 'Cemeti Art House') is the oldest platform of contemporary art in Indonesia, founded in Yogyakarta in 1988 by Mella Jaarsma and Nindityo Adipurnomo.
Programs on this platform take the form of exhibitions, workshops, discussions, meetings, publications, long-term research projects, and artist residency programs for three months (held twice a year). The slogan 'The Institute for Art and Society' came into use in 2017 in order to express organizational commitment to artistic practices that are socially and politically involved, exploring the possibility of galleries acting as important sites for civic actions.
