Javanese artist Jompet Kuswidananto will discuss his work, in conjunction with his participation in Sounding Out the State of Indonesian Music, the Fourth Cornell Modern Indonesia Project “State of the Field” Conference (March 29-31). 

Work by the artist will be on view in the Museum's galleries for Asian art on the fifth floor.

Jompet’s art crosses a diverse range of mediums, including installation, video, sound, performance, and theater. His works explore Indonesia’s history and the complexities of contemporary life in a globalized world. His practice focuses on issues of politics, colonialism, power, and mass mobilization in the context of post-reformation Indonesia. In 2014, Jompet garnered a major award for emerging Asian artists, the Prudential Eye Award, for his installation work. For more about the artist, click here
