Grace Samboh

Function over passion: The millennials’ take on recent art practices is the title of Grace Samboh’s lecture. As a curator, writer and researcher, who lives and works between Yogyakarta and Medan (both ID), she will talk about the art scene in Indonesia.

A special focus is given to the topic of different roles and how they are being played, taken, rejected or ignored within each environment.

Further Grace Samboh 
is in search of what comprises a curatorial work within the surrounding scene. She ranges within the existing elements of the arts scene around her, she considers the claim that Indonesia is lacking art infrastructure especially the state-owned or state run as something outdated. She believes that curating is about understanding and making at the same time. With the platform Hyphen, her concern is to encourage Indonesian arts and artistic research projects and publications.

Her lecture will take place on 26. July 2017 at 7 p.m at Galerie 5020, Salzburg.
