de Braga by ARTOTEL collaborated with Bandung’s young artist in presenting an art exhibition called ‘CONTENTION’ which was being held from 7 to 14 April 2021 at de Braga by ARTOTEL Bandung.
As a commitment from the hotel to support local artists in Bandung, this exhibition is being organized where art pieces from one of Bandung’s young artists, Widi Wardani Purnama are being shown to the public. Widi Wardani or famously called Widwar had several art exhibitions which went successfully such as ‘SOMETHING IN THE ORDER’, ‘SHIFTING SPACES’, RE-BUNG #BIJABA2 and the upcoming one ‘CRYPTO ART’ which will be held at Rachell Gallery.
The ‘CONTENTION’ art exhibition at de Braga by ARTOTEL was visualizing a concept of “balance” in paintings. Widwar was transforming his spiritual experience and through an appropriation technique, he picked small parts from an art maestro piece of work and enlarge them to become one complete artwork.
Other than the paintings exhibition, the event was also highlighted by live music performance from “Proyek Berdua” on the opening date, Artist Talk and press conference, Totebag Painting Workshop conducted by the artist himself, and a Karaoke Night on the closing day of the exhibition which was being held at Bistro, on the third floor of de Braga by ARTOTEL.
