Entang Wiharso Included in STPI Singapore’s First Indonesian Group Show


The satirical works of three leading Indonesian artists, Entang Wiharso, Heri Dono and Eko Nugroho, are included in STPI Singapore’s first Indonesian Group Show “Allegories and Identities”.

In STPI Gallery’s first Indonesian group show, star artists Eko Nugroho, Entang Wiharso and Heri Dono are presented as modern-day dalangs or puppet masters in their playful approach to art.

Allegories & Identities, which runs until Dec 23, showcases nearly 40 works mostly created during the artists’ individual residencies with the STPI Creative Workshop between 2012 and 2015.

All had solo shows after each residency – Nugroho in 2013, Wiharso in 2015 and Dono last year – and this joint exhibition celebrates the 50th year of Singapore-Indonesia bilateral relations.
