Taring Padi is a community of underground artists formed during the days of social upheaval, following the fall of Suharto in 1998. Initially formed by ISI (Institut Seni Indonesia) students in Yogyakarta, this group deploys art as a tool of information to highlight social, political, and economic concerns faced by the Indonesian populace. A voice for marginalised communities, Taring Padi creates art to both educate and provide a platform to raise issues faced by these communities.

Two of Taring Padi’s representatives, Mohamad Yusuf and Yunanto Setio Broto will be at ILHAM Gallery to talk about the collective’s history and its development over the years. The talk will be divided in three parts:

1. A screening of a 30-minute film: “Art, Activism and Rock ‘n Roll” which tells the story of Taring Padi’s early development and their activities when they were based at the Indonesian Art Institution’s ex- campus in Yogjakarta.

2. Presentation of the activist project by Taring Padi opposing the building of a coal power station at a fishing village in Batang, Jawa Tengah.

3. A talk about the making of the book “Taring Padi: Art Smashing Tyranny”.

This session with Taring Padi will be held at Level 5 of the gallery and admission is free. Seats on a first come first served basis.

Taring Padi ialah sebuah komuniti yang terdiri dari artis-artis underground yang tertubuh semasa pergolakan sosial berikutan kejatuhan Suharto pada tahun 1998. Ia ditubuhkan oleh sekumpulan pelajar dari ISI (Institut Seni Indonesia) di Yogyakarta dengan mengambil seni sebagai alat informasi untuk mengetengahkan isu-isu berkaitan dengan sosial, poltik, dan ekonomi yang dihadapi oleh penduduk-penduduk Indonesia. Sebagai suara kepada golongan yang terpinggir, Taring Padi menghasilkan seni khusus untuk mendidik dan menyediakan pelantar untuk menyuarakan isu-isu yang dihadapi oleh golongan tersebut.

Taring Padi akan mengadakan sesi bicara di Galeri ILHAM yang akan disampaikan oleh dua orang wakilnya, Mohamad Yusuf dan Yunanto Setio Broto. Sesi ini akan menyelami sekitar sejarah dan perkembangan kolektif tersebut sepanjang penubuhannya melalui tiga bahagian:

1. Tayangan filem pendek “Art, Activism and Rock ‘n Roll” selama 30 minit yang menceritakan tentang generasi awal Taring Padi dan aktiviti mereka selama mereka menetap di bekas kampus Institusi Seni Indonesia di Yogyakarta.

2. Persembahan projek yang dijalankan oleh Taring Padi ketika mengadakan kerja-kerja aktivisme dengan membentuk solidariti menentang rancangan pembangunan janakuasa arang batu di perkampungan nelayan di Batang, Jawa Tengah yang akan diselangi dengan tayangan filem pendek.

3. Bicara tentang pembikinan buku Taring Padi: Seni Membongkar Tirani.

Sesi bersama Taring Padi akan diadakan di tingkat 5 Galeri ILHAM dan masuk adalah percuma. Tempat duduk adalah terhad.
