Batik of Java: poetics and politics
At last I am back to publish a new post- much has been progressed with the exhibition. On Saturday 14 November we hosted a lunch for all those involved directly in the project. This enabled the curator, Dr Maria Friend to meet with contemporary artist Dadang Christanto; arts writer Yuliana Kusumastuti (Nana); gallery director representing Dadang's work, Jan Manton and Trevor; the Director of the organising gallery, John Waldron; the tour manager, Nina Shadforth and the collectors, Greg Roberts and Ian Reed. Four hours later much had been discussed and the project is flying.
