Hedro Wiyanto

Hendro Wiyanto graduated as an artist from ISI, Yogyakarta, in 1986 but then studied philosophy at the Driyarkara School of Philosophy, Jakarta, and at the Faculty of Literature at the University of Indonesia, (UI).16 Like many, he said he began writing essays and articles for friends who were artists because their exhibitions needed art writing. In 2002 he curated the exhibitions of both Dadang Christanto and F.X. Harsono and in 2004 the major exhibition of Heri Dono’s work at Nadi gallery. He has a good reputation with artists because of his perceptive analysis that is considered not too theoretical, but he is also considered by the younger generation to be a curator for the older, more established artists.
