Pressing Matters at Framer Framed

Pressing Matters, a group exhibition by 24 Indonesian artists brought together by artist Kevin van Braak, addresses pressing socio-political issues in Indonesia today. Among the artists is Ipeh Nur (1993, Yogyakarta) whose illustrations in black and white, silk screens, murals and resin sculptures touch on personal experience, emotions and the problems she sees around her, particularly discrimination. Prior to the opening, Ipeh Nur was invited to create a new site-specific mural for the exhibition in the hallway to the Tolhuistuin. Her trip to the Netherlands was made possible through a mobility grant from the Prince Claus Fund.

The Pressing Matters exhibition, organised by Framer Framed, can be seen at the Tolhuistuin, Ijpromenade 2, until 27 May 2018.
