Mira Asriningtyas

Mira Asriningtyas (Indonesia, 1986) works as a curator and writer in Yogyakarta. In 2011 she founded Lir Space, where she is the in-house curator. Lir Space is an independent institute that aims to build a supportive and positive environment for young artists. In 2013, Asriningtyas was chosen as one of the curators for the Young Curator Forum of Cemeti Art House in Yogyakarta. In the same year, she did a residency and research program at 98B COLLABoratory, Manila. She was also selected to be part of the Young Curators Workshop by the Japan Foundation and the 4A Curators’ Intensive 2014 in 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art in Sydney. In the curriculum year 2016-17 she participates in the De Appel Curatorial Programme. Asriningtyas is especially interested in conceptually-driven projects, presenting the process of making art, combining different academics backgrounds and disciplines, playing with the tension between what is private and public, reusing abandoned places and public space as project site, and artworks that emphasise spatial practice. She regularly publishes in magazines and catalogues.
