Isabel and Alfredo Aquilizan’s wings Acquired by Museum MACAN

6 May 2024

Isabel and Alfredo Aquilizan’s expansive ‘Left Wing Project’ has been acquired by Museum MACAN, following their inaugural survey exhibition ‘Somewhere, Elsewhere, Nowhere’, held at the museum in June 2023.

The survey exhibition ‘Somewhere, Elsewhere, Nowhere’ covered over 20 years of the Aquilizans’ collaborative practice, who have contributed significantly to global art discourses through their exploration of urban development, migration, and identity formation.

Notable works acquired include their distinctive wing pieces and drawings ‘Belok Kiri Jalan Terus’ (2015-18), which reflect the artists’ deep-rooted connections within the artistic and industrial community of Yogyakarta.
