Bruised: Art Action and Ecology in Asia – Performance | Made Bayak

May 23, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Free

Indonesian artist Made “Bayak” Muliana, aka Made Bayak, is dedicated to activism through art. Emphasising the transformations of landscape and displacement of indigenous communities that accompany development, Bayak’s creative practice serves as a space for reimagining history. His work as an environmental artist critiques capitalism, consumerism, war, oil, and the problems caused by tourism-driven development in Bali.

“Let us all be a part of this phenomenon of social change that is occurring – as we are. If you are a writer do with it with the power of your words, if you are a musician do it with your songs and your music. As an artist you can do it by the messages within your work. For me as a visual artist and a musician I will be socially active in these positive ways.”

Join us at RMIT Gallery for this special performance by Made Bayak, as part of the Bruised: Art Action and Ecology in Asia exhibition, which examines how artists are using creative actions to open discussions around food sustainability and production, environmental catastrophes and human migration in our region.
