Five Indonesian artists will collaborate on a “magic”-themed exhibition for this year’s Venice Biennale, the Jakarta Globe reports. Indonesian artists have appeared in the biennale before, but this will be the first year that the country will present in its own pavilion. The five artists—Albert Yohan Setiawan, Sri Astari, Eko Nugroho, Entang Witarso and Titarubi—work across a wide spectrum of media ranging from embroidery to fiberglass, and have primarily exhibited throughout Indonesia and Europe.
