An exhibition of paintings by Tri Wahyudi, titled “The Journey Before Bedtime”, features the heroic stories of humans and animals. They are brought to life through Tri’s paintings in startling color. In his latest works, Tri reminds us of the little childhood stories which sometimes go forgotten as we grow up. The stories may be hidden deep in our subconscious, but their moral and psychological effects remain on our surface. After great acclaim in Yogyakarta, now it’s Jakarta’s turn to relive childish dreams. The exhibition will be held at Bentara Budaya Jakarta from July 19 to July 27, at 07:30 p.m.

Invite the children around you to celebrate their day, on July 23 at the theater. Dongeng 1001 Malam is showing at Taman Ismail Marzuki from July 20 until July 22 04.00 p.m. every day. Entrance for this engaging show is Rp 50.000 (US$5.3).
New sculpture art is a trend which emerged as an expansion of the conventions of modern sculpture. The trend began to appear in exhibition spaces in the 1990s, then spread and developed until today. The Salihara Gallery will hold an exhibition called “Pameran Seni Patung Baru” (New Sculpture Art Exhibition), from July 28 until Aug. 11. This exhibition is a criticism of the trend of new sculpture art. The curator has selected works from a number of artists representing the art.
Selected comments will be published in the Readers’ Forum page of our print newspaper.
