Researcher and curator Grace Samboh reflects on two historical exhibitions at Galeri Nasional Jakarta: 'Paris-Jakarta 1950-1960' in 1992 and 'Contemporary Art of the Non-Aligned Countries' in 1995. She poses a number of questions about the exhibitions that involve many artists from many countries: What can we learn from these exchanges? Were they merely symbolic gestures of alliances? What was the relationship among the artists? Were there actual exchanges among artists?
