San Francisco and Jogjakarta, Indonesia, could be sister cities when it comes to their exuberant street art cultures. In fact, some of the murals that enliven the public spaces of each city are the fruit of an ongoing collaboration between artists associated with San Francisco’s Clarion Alley Mural Project (CAMP) and Jogjakarta-based artists. This fall, seven artists from Indonesia bring their particular brand of public art to the museum’s Village Artist Corner for a new project, Bangkit/Arise.  

Join these artists for a discussion about this exciting project and tour their murals through a live feed connecting San Francisco to Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Take a look at the murals they’ve created in each city and hear firsthand about the process and projects in both cities. Participating artists: Wedhar Riyadi, Vina Puspita, Nano Warsano, Bambang Toko, Hari Ndaruwati, Mohamad “Ucup” Yusuf, Eko Didyk Sukowati, Kelling Ording, Jet Martinez, Jose Guerra Awe, Christopher Statton, Megan Wilson, Shaghayegh Cyrous and Keyvan Shovir.  

United by a belief that art in the public sphere can have a positive impact on communities, artists from the two cities have been engaged in a 15-year cross-cultural exchange. They began working side by side, and learning from each other, in 2003 with the project Sama-Sama/Together. American artists traveled to Jogjakarta to paint large-scale murals across the city and then the artists from Indonesia came here to create work. You can still spot a mural from this project on the facade of Rainbow Grocery in the Mission District. In the years since, artists from the two cities have continued to travel back and forth to add their handiwork to the ever-changing urban mix.
