Born in Jakarta, Indonesia, 1984, Grace Samboh lives in between Yogyakarta and Medan, Indonesia. Due to questioning (a little bit) too many things all at once, she does curatorial work as well as research. She truly believes that every person needs at least three copies of themselves.
Some of her recent curatorial work are POLLINATION, with Bill Nguyen, at the Factory Contemporary Art Center, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam (2018); Moelyono: A retrospective, at the National Gallery of Indonesia (2018); SUNSHOWER – Contemporary art from Southeast Asia 1980s to now at the Mori Art Museum, and the National Art Center Tokyo, Japan (2017); Carte Blanche: Anxiety, at the Mizuma Gallery, Singapore (2017); Museum Tanpa Tanda Jasa (Unsung Museum) in ROH Projects, Jakarta, Kedai Kebun Forum, Yogyakarta, & Galeri Gerilya, Bandung, Indonesia (2016-…); #banyakbanyak (many-many) in different sites and galleries in Indonesia and Australia in collaboration with Kristi Monfries, Helen Hughes & Gertrude Contemporary, Melbourne (2015). With Hyphen, her partners in curiosity, she is unraveling datas, facts and stories about Gerakan Seni Rupa Baru Indonesia (1975-1989) into an upcoming publication. With Yogyakarta Biennale Foundation, she is taking care of the programing part of the Equator Symposium (2012-2022).
