FX Harsono (b. 1949, Indonesia) is recognised for playing a pivotal role in the development of contemporary art in Indonesia. FX’s shifting practice includes his involvement as a leading member of Gerakan Seni Rupa Baru (New Art Movement) in the mid-seventies; creating politically-charged performance and installations in the nineties.While his work deals directly with the trauma of Indonesia’s modern history, it has far reaching consequences, in its exploration of diaspora, cultural memory and personal histories. In 2010, a mid-career survey of his practice, Testimonies, was held at Singapore Art Museum.
FX Harsono was born in East Java, Indonesia in 1949. He studied painting at STSRI ‘ASRI’ Yogyakarta, Indonesia (1969 – 74) and at Jakarta Art Institute, Indonesia (1987 – 91). He has been included in a number of major exhibition projects, including Testimonies (2010) at the Singapore Art Museum; the 3rd Kwangju Biennale (2001, Kwangju South Korea); Tradition/Tension (1996, Asia Society, New York); The Asia-Pacific Triennial (1993, Queensland Art Gallery, Brisbane). He currently lives and works in Jakarta.
