"In the 19th century, a hole is a place where artists can exhibit their work after the jury assessed by the team. Although we do not have a team of judges for this exhibition, we want ideas from the hole in Yogyakarta where artists can exhibit their creations."

Curator of the exhibition, Wang Zineng, states that in the catalog of "The auction sales - fueled by new market showing strong interest in contemporary art of Indonesia - has become a top forum for the validation of the quality and the arrival of artists and their work."

Ahmad Syahbandi's "New Chapter" is a neo-realist paintings from the outside world with the plastic wrapping on a newspaper that has a painting of the green on the Atlas. His realistic picture of plastic and paper is evidence to the technique. He very carefully detailed.

Christiana said Yogyakartan the signature style of contemporary artists who are painting them to a story. "Compared to Bandung, the work of contemporary artists lean toward the absurd style, Yogyakartan painters want to tell the story," he said.
