Maladjustment: Arahmaiani, I GAK Murniasih, Mary Lou Pavlovic
This exhibition forms part of the official exhibition program for the 2019 Ubud Writers and Readers Festival on the 23rd October - 27th October 2019. Maladjustment brings together key works from three internationally recognised contmeporary women artists from diverse cultures I GAK Murniasih (Bali) , Arahmaiani (Yogyakarta) and Mary Lou Pavlovic (Australia).
"The voices of Arahmaiani, I GAK Murniasih and Mary Lou Pavlovic are heard loud and clear, although their existence cannot be taken for granted: to pursue their art without compromise, these artists have fought against cultural, religious and political factors, facing backlash from leagl action to death threats... Maladjustment honours these artists, whos efforts towards gender equality have been considerable... Although created many years ago, the artworks at Maladjustment remain relevant. If anything, their importance is only increasing, as their value is now understoon by a wider public... (these artists have) refused to respect social norms of mainstream cultures, (which require women to be quiet)." - Deborah Iskandar (former CEO of Soetheby;'s Indonesia) and CEO of ISA Art & Design.
