This event has ended.

The International Studio & Curatorial Program introduces LIR Space, a Yogyakarta-based independent arts institute founded in 2011 by Mira Asriningtyas, a curator and writer, and Dito Yuwono, an artist, as the 2020 institution-in-residence.

LIR will be taking over the second floor gallery of ISCP from January 28 through April 24, 2020 and will present an exhibition and a series of public programs during this time.

The institution’s program ranges from exhibition laboratories and research-based art projects to public programs, residencies, and alternative art education platforms. LIR’s projects are characterized by multidisciplinary collaboration and performative exhibitions, fostering continuous transgenerational transmission of knowledge, memory, and history.

At ISCP, LIR’s intervention titled Transient Museum of a Thousand Conversations will create an expansive portrait of the landscape, people and society of the founders’ hometown Kaliurang, Indonesia, by focusing on subjects such as botanical specimens, alternative histories of Dutch colonization, traumatic memory, national identity, culinary heritage, social space and storytelling.
