Mizuma Gallery is pleased to announce ‘Broken White Project: Tropenwelle’, an exhibition featuring eight Indonesian artists, Dian Suci Rahmawati, Meliantha Muliawan, Prihatmoko Moki, Restu Ratnaningtyas, Riono Tanggul Nusantoro, Rudy ‘Atjeh’ Dharmawan, Widi Pangestu and Wisnu Auri, organised in collaboration with Ace House Collective.

‘Broken White Project: Tropenwelle’, is an initiative by Yogyakarta-based artists-run Ace House Collective that works with artists to conduct comprehensive readings of creative processes while optimising the potential for interconnectivity between spaces and artists. Presented as a series of exhibitions, the project focuses on dialogues related to the creation of ideas and artworks, fostering creative processes through a collective work style. These dialogues, networking, and spatial partnerships with artists are an effort to find a methodological framework and to discover a formula for nurturing the creative process of artists and sustaining their artistic works.

This time, Ace House Collective collaborates with Mizuma Gallery to present ‘Broken White Project: Tropenwelle’, an exhibition that envisions the Singapore art scene as one of the main pillars of contemporary Asian art today. The activation of inter-spatial networks is crucial in order for us to observe the extent of art’s potential in reading the phenomena and in responding to ideas and changes in our everyday life.

The conceptual outlines carried out in the works exhibited in ‘Broken White Project: Tropenwelle’ stem from history and collective memory as the foundation, gallery networks as the basis for the areas of practice, contemporary art as the work model, and cultural approaches as the themes. We are currently witnessing the ongoing process of reading and reconstructing of historical records and cultural practices on a public as well as a domestic scale, in order to explore the challenges of the future of Asian contemporary art. This process takes forms in the work practices of artists working with past issues, especially those related to the modes of knowledge, repertoire of local material, cultural productions, and the regional politics tightly related to the decolonization discourse. The jumbled intersection of issues and discourses of contemporary art that converge with global culture has given rise to significant changes and tensions to the intrinsic realm of artists’ studio work. Engaged in an effort to confront cultural amnesia, this exhibition presents eight artists in a variety of conceptual works and creations.
