Opening Reception: May 25, 2-5PM

Meaning “a long time ago” in Indonesian, Dahulu Kala is a tribute to the timeless tales passed down from generation to generation. In an increasingly complicated and modernized world, folktales help tether us to our roots, bridging the distance often felt between ourselves and our heritage. Dahulu Kala began with curator Clar Angkasa’s desire to reconnect with her Indonesian roots and grew into a collaborative effort to create a space to share these stories once told to us by our ancestors. 

In this group show, Indonesian artists and writers are invited to select folktales from their culture and breathe new life into them. Each work is paired with a written piece that provides yet another interpretation of the tale. The very nature of these stories is ever-changing and fluid, so artists and writers are encouraged to explore nuances that have perhaps been overlooked in countless retellings. This exhibition allows viewers–both Indonesian and otherwise–to immerse themselves in tales from “dahulu kala”, providing a unique glimpse into Indonesian art and culture through written and visual storytelling that's filled with enchantment, transformation, sacrifice, and characters who persevere through it all.
