This year’s forum, titled “Net Present Value: Art, Capital, Future”, seeks to explore the values of art, imagination, and progress, along with issues related to conducting business in a global capitalist system. The Galleries will be presenting two specially selected works by Jenny Holzer (b. 1950, USA) and Yudi Sulistyo (b. 1972, Indonesia). Best known for her large-scale public installations of texts influenced by literature, society, and politics, Holzer will present Truisms: Money Creates Taste, a white marble bench with the Chinese translation of the phrase engraved on its seat. Dealing with the darker side of capitalism, Yudi Sulistyo will present Out of Control, an imposing life-sized model of a damaged militaristic aircraft.
Furthering its mission of promoting cross-cultural dialogue within and beyond Asia, the Galleries will be exhibiting the works of leading contemporary artists across the globe at its main stand, including works by Pepai Jangala Carroll (b. 1950, Australia), Chun Kwang Young (b. 1944, South Korea), Dale Frank (b. 1959, Australia), Gonkar Gyatso, (b. 1961, Tibet), Li Tianbing (b. 1974, China), Jason Martin (b. 1970, a British artist born in the Channel Islands), Antony Micallef (b. 1975, UK), Gatot Pujiarto (b. 1970, Indonesia), Qian Jiahua (b. 1987, China), Bosco Sodi (b. 1970, Mexico), Su Xiaobai (b. 1949, China), Yudi Sulistyo (b. 1972, Indonesia), Sinta Tantra (b. 1979, a Balinese-British artist born in the USA), Zhou Yangming (b. 1971, China) and Zhu Jinshi (b. 1954, China).
