Following the international success of Shout: Contemporary Indonesian Art held at Museo d’Arte Contemporanea di Roma in 2014, curated by Bryan Collie and Santy Saptari, Multicultural Arts Victoria and MiFA are presenting SHOUT! 2015. The exhibition spans three locations and showcases extraordinary Indonesian contemporary art from Yogyakarta and Bandung including paintings and soft sculpture to inflatables and largescale installations.

SHOUT! 2015 is a reflection of the fast growing Indonesian contemporary society the artists live in. The featured works draw the audience through the aesthetic influence of each artist and the personal and universal issues each work represents.
