An exhibition celebrating the literary works of Pramoedya Ananta Toer, or Pram for short, will be held at Dia.Lo.Gue, Jakarta, starting from April 17 to May 20.
Often considered one of Indonesia's greatest authors, Pram was most famous for his Buru Quartet, his internationally acclaimed tetralogy that is set in Indonesia during the Dutch colonial era. The exhibition, titled Namaku Pram (My name is Pram), will showcase archive of notes, pictures and scrapbooks that could provide a closer look at the life of the celebrated novelist.
As an accompaniment to the exhibition, an Artist Talk and mini exhibition will also be held at Galeri Indonesia Kaya in Grand Indonesia Mall, Jakarta. For more information, visit Dia.Lo.Gue's official website.
