Times Square Arts Presents FX Harsono’s Writing in the Rain
Presented in partnership with Asia Society Museum to coincide with the exhibition “After Darkness: Southeast Asian Art in the Wake of History”
Times Square's Electronic Billboards. A seminal figure in the Indonesian contemporary art scene, Harsono has been deeply engaged with social and political issues, including the role of the artist in the recovery of repressed histories, cultures, and identities. Writing in the Rain is a stark depiction of the artist writing his name in Chinese characters with a brush as rain slowly washes the ink away.
